Learn to Crochet: Links
These are my favorite sources to go if you’re having trouble. If one doesn’t work for you, try another, because they all offer different ways of learning. Click on the name to visit the page. Descriptions are below the name.
I know this isn’t a free source, but in my humble opinion, it’s the best place to start. I learned to crochet from this book, with no teachers or anybody to help. It comes with yarn (gorgeously silky and a lovely color, may I add), hooks, stitch markers, yarn needle, and super clear illustrations. (The link is to buy it on Amazon.)
This is one of the greatest resources I’ve found! It has tutorials for a bunch of basic stitches plus more complicated ones like puff stitch and bullion stitch. You can also learn how to make granny squares.
23 lessons with right and left-hand video tutorials! You learn the names of the stitches, abbreviations, basic stitches, about yarn, crochet hooks, reading crochet charts (very handy) and oodles of other stuff. It might seem a little overwhelming at first, so I’ve linked you to the Table of Contents so you can go in order. 🙂
It’s a lot easier to learn to crochet from videos, for some people; this is a great organized list that covers a slip knot, chain, sl st, sc, hdc, dc, tr, working in blp or flp, and post stitches. I love Moogly blog and I’m very happy to be able to send you that way if you need help.
I’m always happy to help if you need more specific troubleshooting! Leave a comment or contact me, and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible. 🙂
