How to crochet
Maybe you've seen other people's beautiful crochet projects, and want to make your own bag, hat, or blanket. Or maybe you've heard that crochet and knitting is a great way to relax, and you could do with a little less stress in your daily life. Whatever your reason, you're ready to pick up your hook and make something beautiful. So, where do you start?
Crochet chains are the starting point for lots of patterns - and they're easy to learn!
Trying to practice with light-colored yarn, even if you're partial to darker colors.
Want to make sure you have all the right materials and an easy pattern? We also have plenty of DIY kits that are great for beginning crocheters. Amigurumi, home accessories and bags - there's bound to be a design that calls out to you!
Step 3: Keep going!
Chances are, your finished object might not look as good as all the crochet projects you see online. Your stitches might be looser, or more uneven, for instance.
Don't give up!
Like any other skill, crocheting takes practice. Knowing how to do the basic stitches is just the beginning of learning to crochet. Keep crocheting, and you will see that each new project will look better and better. Before you know it, your crochet creations will look good on anything you see on Pinterest or Instagram!
We'd love to see your progress!
