Everyone can learn how to crochet!

It’s super easy, although I thought differently for the last 30 plus years.

Come, join my tribe:

No spam, guaranteed!

Now, as I already told you the story about HOW I started to crochet in my popcorn stitch beanie and loop post, I will cut to the chase, and just remind you of the reason WHY I learned to crochet: It was the love, love, love I feel for my goddaughter <3

How to read crocheting patterns

In order to learn how to crochet you need of course to be able to understand the instructions. But oh my, crocheting patterns are written in a funny foreign language, which is made up out of weird letter combinations and funny signs. But once you’ve got the hang out of it, it’s all fun and games. Pinky Promise ;-)! If you want, you can go find yourself a cheat sheet for crocheting abbreviations on Pinterest – I pinned several on my pinboard Granny squares and such things – go have a look! Especially if you want to work a foreign crocheting pattern (Yes, ummmm USA, UK, or Germany use different words for the same stitches. I think this might be because different people might have invented crocheting parallel. But I could also be terribly wrong – hahaha ;-)).

A collection: Stitches, abbreviations, and video tutorials

I figured I’ll save you the time of watching youtube video after youtube video, to find the really good ones (meaning: videos that cut to the chase, because impatient me can’t wait 10 minutes till they finally start explaining how to do the actual stitch!!!). So I started a summary – sorta an ever-growing video dictionary so you can learn how to crochet.

I’ll make sure to update it regularly, so you’ll always find all the stitches necessary for my projects. Promise!
