After much frustration of not being able to learn anything other than chain stitch I finally sat down with my hook, wool and YouTube. There are some great videos on the internet for helping learn to crochet. (here is one of the videos that I used to help with the basics).
So, with the help of YouTube I finally learned how to single, double and treble crochet! Among a few others that I still need to practice!
This is my first real project:
I made 2 bows! They are far from perfect but I can only improve with practice (I hope!!). (Click here for bow video tutorial I used).
I am still struggling to figure out how to read patterns so for now I think I will focus on using YouTube until I am more confident. I cannot wait to to try these when I finally do figure it out! (all from Simply Crochet Issue 1).
Simply Crochet is great as it shows you how to crochet for left handed people. Most tutorials and beginners guides focus purely on teaching right handed people, which can make it more difficult to learn when you are left handed like me!
Are any of you left handed crochet-ers? How do you find it?
