There are so many ways to learn how to crochet.
From books, video tutorials, classes, friends and family.
This article has photo and video tutorials for making a slip stitch, how to make chains, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, treble crochet.
My Nana taught me when I was very young, but when I came to re-learn a few years ago I found people like Mikey from the Crochet Crowd very helpful, his videos on YouTube are great!
However you learn best is the right way for you.
♥ I have now added some video tutorials to help with the basic stitches, you can find them all a little way down the page, but read on first.
♥ All I wanted to cover here is the basics of stitch sizes, which loop to work into and a few handy tips and hints I have picked up along the way.
♥ To me the two most important things are COUNT your stitches and RELAX.
Take your time… remember “slow and steady wins the race”.
♥ When you relax your tension will be more even, and your results will look more even.
So lets start with some stitches…
