When I was younger I learned how to knit with my Girl Scout troop. We went to the mountains & spent the whole weekend making, or trying to make, scarfs & ear warmers. Like most skills that go unused, I eventually forgot how.
It was not until February of 2016 that I decided to try my hand at fiber arts once again. I had seen a few photos of a granny square cardigan on Facebook & thought I would give one a try. Before I knew it, I was in Joann’s picking out some yarn. I got the cheapest green yarn, a few different crochet hooks, & headed to YouTube to find a tutorial to show me where to start. I spent the rest of the day searching for the right teacher & trying to learning different stitches.
YouTube has become a great resource for my crocheting. Whenever I am unsure how to do something, I know I can find some sort of video to help. Although, they are not always easy to follow or in english. That is why I have decided to create my own crochet tutorials. My hope is that through my experiences, I will be able to make it easier for others to learn. In these tutorials I will explain the things I wish someone had told me & teach you the skills I use to create unique crochet designs.
My goal is that though these tutorials I will be able to bring the joys of crocheting to more people & make it easy for them to learn, grow, & connect with other artists.
Here is my first crochet tutorial. In this video you will learn everything you need to know to get started. I cover how to tie yarn on to your hook, how to chain, how to do a single crochet, & how to do a double crochet.
I also briefly touch on how to wind your yarn into a ball (if it does not come that way), what hooks to use, & other crochet stitches. For more information on these topics, subscribe to my channel! I will go into more detail in future videos.
Also, my apologies the titles get cut off in the video! I am working on fixing it & not saying “so” so much lol.
Let me know what you think!
