How To: Crochet - For Beginners

Whether you're a crochet newbie or a veteran with a hook, it's always good to brush up on your crochet skills!
I've personally found that visually learning crochet stitches with the help of videos makes the process a lot easier than struggling to understand a written description.

So to help out my future crochet-a-holics I thought I'd create this post detailing all the stitches and steps you'll need in order to crochet almost any pattern.





Hope you all enjoyed this little lesson in the art of crocheting!
Have a lovely day indulging in your new found hobby,

  2. The videos were really good and easy to follow.... but the loud music was a real distraction.
    It might have been better to have NO music, and maybe talk the viewers through the process
    of each stitch instead.

  4. So great! thank you, it's a really easy to follow video.

    Your triple crochet link goes to a half double crochet video - I managed to find it in your youtube channel but it would help to edit the link.

  9. Great info but how do I finish it off? Just tie it or do another foundation stitch?

  10. Really helpful but how do I get past the foundation row? So, in the subsequent videos a few rows have already been done but I would like to know how to get from the foundation row to the single crochet part?

    1. To start a new row, you always Chain either 1, 2 or 3 stitches usually. For Single and Half Double crochets you chain 1, then crochet into the 2nd chain from your hook, and crochet 1 stitch into every chain across. For Double crochets, you crochet 2 extra chains, and crochet 1 Double Crochet into the 3rd chain from your hoo, and crochet 1 Double Crochet into every chain across. For Triple Crochets, chain 3, and crochet into the 4th chain from your hook, and crochet 1 stitch into every chain across.
      Hope this helps out!

  14. I liked your videos and especially the abbreviations of the stitches which I was lacking. I could crochet in German, but did not know all American abbreviations. Thank you for the great, slow presentations.
