Learn to Crochet!!

Lately a lot of cool patterns have been popping up for crocheting and maybe you want to start to learn. Well now is as good a time as any! I will show you some great tutorials on YouTube to help get you started! If you shop at your local Hobby Lobby, use this coupon and get 40% off!  It can be printed or brought up on mobile web.

To start off, you will need some supplies:

A crochet hook (they come in various sizes, my favorite is the 5.00mm and 6.00mm)

My 6.00mm even has an Ewok!

A yarn that is neither too dark nor too light (using yarn that is woven a bit tighter is easier to learn with. I prefer the “I Love this Yarn” brand found at Hobby Lobby)

Some stitch markers (pssst, I use bobby pins)

This is a work in progress and I used a bobby pin to remind me where to start up again

Here is a playlist I have made to help you along your way (It’s dangerous to go alone)!!

There are a lot of resources out there on the internet to help you find what you want to make. Some of my favorite websites to check out are Nerdigurumi and of course Pinterest. There are so many different patterns and tutorials for the taking on there.  When you start and its not coming out the way you were expecting, don’t feel discouraged! I started in January and I am still continuing to learn new things about crochet, don’t worry friends, you will get there.

Here are some things I’ve made along my learning.
