Learn to crochet
If there is anything you want to learn about crochet, you are in the right place! Below you’ll find listed all the resources I have to offer to teach you about crochet.
If you are a beginner that wants to learn to crochet from scratch, I have excellent resources for that!
If you have learned the stitches from a friend, family member, or YouTube videos, you may not know how to read written patterns. I can teach you that skill as well!
If you have all the basics down and want to build your skills, I have tutorials for many of those!
As I add more resources, I will add links to those here, so that this page is your guide to all you need to learn to crochet! I encourage you to bookmark this page so that you can come back to it anytime you need help with something.
Learn the basic stitches
If you are a brand new crocheter, start here.
Make your very first project
I suggest my Beginner Bracelet as a first project. It includes a written pattern and a very slow, detailed video to go along with it. This is one of the very first videos I ever made, so my apologies that the quality isn’t the greatest, I have improved my set up tremendously since making this video. Despite that, the content of the video has helped thousands of new crocheters, and I’m confident it can help you learn to crochet as well.
Get the written pattern and video tutorial for my Beginner Bracelet here.
Learn to read written crochet patterns
Learning to read written patterns isn’t essential to being able to crochet, but it expands your possibilities tremendously! There are many patterns that aren’t available as videos and you will only be able to make them with a written pattern to guide you. I suggest that any crocheter, new or seasoned, that doesn’t know how to read a written pattern, learn how.
How do you do that? You have a written pattern and a video that walks you through it step by step to explain the abbreviations and the formatting.
First, abbreviations. Written crochet patterns use a lot of abbreviations. This means that you need a key to those abbreviations until you have them memorized. You can get my downloadable, printable crochet abbreviations chart at this link when you subscribe to my newsletter.
Then, you can watch any or all of the following videos in the “Learn to Read Crochet Patterns” series to help with the formatting.
Once you can read written patterns, try out these easy projects!
