- First off, the most important thing is to find a set of tutorials that will teach you to crochet for your dominant hand.
- Here's a set of basic courses for left handers, and here is one for right handers.
- Also, because I crochet right handed (I couldn't find one for lefties. Sorry, I do feel your pain. I'm left handed in everything but this, lol) Here's an advanced beginner group of courses for right handers.
- Next, find a teacher whose voice won't bug you as you'll be spending lots of time listening to this person.
- Finally, don't be afraid to pause the video! This seems fairly simple, but lots of people don't think of it and get lost in the lesson. So, PLEASE don't be afraid to pause or rewind your video. If it will help you learn what is being taught, it's DEFINITELY worth it!! :D
Once you've learned some basic skills like chaining, single and double crochets; you can tackle some simple projects like these:
Corner to Corner Dishcloth
Here's a fun, basic pattern that can also be made into an afghan! It can all be done in one color OR used as a practice session for color changes! :D
Another basic pattern with beginning crochet stitches. This one has the opportunity for color changes or could be done in all one color if you aren't ready to attempt color changing yet! :D
The easiest pattern on this list! No color change needed and a video to follow in case things get complicated! This one could be a great gift idea for those folks on your list who appreciate something handmade! It is also a quick project to complete at the last minute if you need a gift for someone you'd not had on your original gift list! (You know you've been there when someone gives you something unexpectedly and you have nothing planned for them.)
I do hope this was helpful to y'all in some capacity. Please let me know what y'all thought in the comments below!!
Have an AWESOME day, y'all!!
