About 10 years, I decided I was going to learn how to crochet. I looked all over the internet for resources to help me out and over time, I gradually pieced together the basics and figured it out. But it took me a long time to understand some of the simple aspects of crochet just because I was learning from so many different sources that all explained things a little differently. There had to be a better was to teach crochet for beginners like me! As much as I looked, I could find a definitive resource that could take you from absolute beginner to “oh my God! I crochet!”. So I created one myself and called it The Beginner’s Guide to Crochet.
What is The Beginner’s Guide to Crochet?
If you’ve ever looked at something crocheted and thought, “I wish I could make that!” but just didn’t know where to start, this is the ebook for you. Or maybe you learned the basics from your mother, grandmother or family friend, but you need a little refresher. Whatever the case, The Beginner’s Guide to Crochet is a full course to teach crochet for beginners from the very basics to skills and techniques that grow with you.
As someone who had to learn crochet on my own, I know that it can be tricky to make sense of all the stitches and funny new hand motions while trying not to get your yarn all tangled. I’ve been there and now I’m a crochet designer teaching others how to crochet and guess what, I’m actually making an income from it! Crochet has taken me a long way, but we all start in the same place and this is the one resource I wish I had when I looked up “crochet for beginners” almost 10 years ago.
