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.

Crochet: Learn To Crochet Six Great Projects (A Klutz Book)

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.)

Cherry Heart’s Crochet Corner

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.

Crochet School

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. 🙂

Learn To Crochet: Beginner’s Course With Moogly Videos

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. 🙂

    Hi could you please tell me what ply wool Red Heart Suoer Saver yarn is please. The pattern also says a thicker worsted weight yarn can be used. Not sure what ply that would be also

    Thank you

      Hi Pam! Red Heart Super Saver is a worsted-weight yarn, 4 ply I believe. What pattern are you referring to? I can try to offer further guidance on yarn substitutions…not positive what it means by a “thicker” worsted-weight yarn. But RHSS is my default, so I would probably suggest that!
