There are a million how to crochet videos out there with step-by-step instructions and stitch guides that explain exactly what to do, even if you’re a complete beginner. There are a few sites that I regularly visit and that I highly recommend.
I’ve created my own library of crochet how to videos conveniently located right here on my blog!
I can just imagine you, all comfy on the couch with your skein of yarn dangling at your feet, your hook in hand, and cinnamon-flavored coffee within arm’s reach. You’re so excited to start crocheting a plushy doll or a geeky potholder. Then you take one look at the pattern and realize you don’t know how to do one of the required stitches. Maybe you don’t even know how to get started at all (the horror).
Instead of sending you on a wild goose chase all over the wide, wild interweb, I’ve put together a ton of videos that let you hit the ground running.
This is my Crochet Fundamentals Series, where beginners can learn the most basic of the basic techniques. You can also subscribe to my YouTube channel and get notified whenever I post a new video.
The only thing that I must prepare you for is the ridiculous condition of my nails and cuticles. All I ask is that you have mercy and please don’t judge me.
