Wanting to learn to crochet - how did you learn?
I want to learn how to crochet - how did everyone learn? Youtube? Books? Online? =) Would I need much to start either?? xx
Here's a site teaching how to make Amigurumi. There are video how tos for stitches. http://www.hookandneedles.com/tutorials/
I actually learned the basic stitches at school. And then I got interested in Amigurumis and watched her videos. No, you wouldn't need much. Just a hook and a yarn. Oh, and patience too.
Good luck ;)
I learned basic stitches and everything else I know about crochet with this page:
the video tutorials are excellent!!!
hope it's useful ^w^
I got the so you want to lean to crochet book.a needle and thread and just started from their.Just keep t practicing till I was good enough to make something.I did the same with knitting.evey thing I have learned I have taught my self from book..the library is my friend, and now the Internet..smile
i was lucky enough to have my grandma teach me the basics. when it come to reading patterns though...i'm just no good. it might as well be written in Chinese! so i learned a lot from youtube...it made it easer for me to see and hear what was going on.
my favorite is http://www.youtube.com/user/tjw1963 and http://www.youtube.com/user/tjw1963 they are the same person...just two diff. channels. she also has a blog if you want to see the patterns written as well.
i got the klutz book to teach me
(after someone on here recommended it!)
you get some practise yarn, a hook, stitch markers and yarn needle with it too and i found it really easy to use (even being left handed!) and there are a few little projects to try when you've mastered the stitches.
Since then i've bought a set of hooks from amazon for £4 for 10
also once you've learnt i'd suggest signing up to ravelry.com as there's loads of patterns on there for free! x
I'd suggest hook and needles as well. it refreshed my memory (my granny taught me) and taught me how to read patterns.
Sweet thank you!! =) I'll check them out ^^ xxxx
