In this tutorial you will learn how to pick the best yarn for your first time. Plus the best size crochet hook to use. I’ll show you two ways of holding the crochet hook. And I’ll demonstrate how to hold the yarn. At the end you will learn how to make a quick, easy, and simple dish cloth.

Did I mention I have both a RIGHT hand version and a LEFT hand version of this video? If you are looking for the RIGHT handed version of this video, please go here:

Next, you will learn the very first stitch in crochet called a slip knot. Afterwards you will learn how to make a chain, which is an important foundation stitch. We oftentimes use abbreviations for the stitches that are used in crochet patterns. For example, chain is abbreviated as CH.

Next you will learn how to make a single crochet stitch (SC), which is one of the basic stitches of crochet. And then you will learn how to turn your work to go to the next row. Finally, you will learn how to finish your work and sew and weave in the ends. Did I mention I’ll also show you how to fix your work if you make a mistake?

Crochet seems a bit difficult at first because you are trying to coordinate both hands. And neither of them are doing the same thing. However if you go slowly, and practice several times a week, you will find it’s a very nice fiber art.

Most people, including myself, find both crochet and knitting be a stress reliever. It’s hard to think about your problems when you are very busy counting your stitches! Plus there are so many beautiful types of yarn out there. Some brands of yarn are really nice and relatively inexpensive, so you can stock up and not break your budget!
