Hello Friends!

Have you ever heard the phrase “Begin at the beginning…?” Well that’s exactly where we are headed. This post is for you new crocheters out there! Hi! Welcome! Come on in & don’t be shy!! We all started somewhere, and this is a great place to start!

This Learn to Crochet Series was designed to do exactly that – help you learn to crochet. I myself am “self taught” as in I learned to crochet with the help of books, YouTube videos (like those you will find below!), and beginner patterns, rather than having a formal “teacher” to speak of.

I think this is a great way to learn with no pressure, at your own pace, and in your own time. A lot of us are moms and we don’t have a lot of free time to take a class or seminar, but we are eager to learn! Eager to have something to call our own – a creative outlet! For me, crochet was IT! I hope it is for your too, but if it isn’t, learning this way won’t cost you much time or money – Hooray!

The Foundation Crochet Stitches are a great technique to add a bit more stretch to your work than a traditional chain offers. I love to use Foundation Crochet to when making hats, mittens, and crochet crowns to name a few! I highly recommend the Foundation Half Double Crochet (fhdc) method for the first round of my Basic Crochet Crown and Crochet Dinosaur Crown Patterns!
