Would you like to learn to crochet?
Once you have the simple crochet techniques, it's easy!
All you really need is someone to show you how.
On this site you'll find easy video instructions for how to crochet - how to chain, single crochet, double crochet, and even the basics on how to start a crochet chain from the beginning.
Many of us have aunts or moms or grandmas who can show us how to crochet. But what if you don't have anyone to show you?
If you've never crocheted before, you can do it!
Watch the video on the basic crochet stitches. Feel free to watch it multiple times until you get the hang of it - this is a video I wish I'd been able to watch when I was a kid trying to learn to crochet!
We've also provided some free crochet instructions, in video form.
Remember the old crochet potholders Grandma used to make? Or maybe your Great Aunt Sarah? You know, the two-thickness ones, that were so think you never got burned taking anything out of the oven?
It took a long time, but I was able to find a dear granny who gave me crochet instructions on how to make those great old potholders. And a good thing, too, because knowledge of those old crochet patterns is fast disappearing.
With a simple chain stitch, a little single crochet and double crochet, you, too can create a beautiful and versatile craft from the past.
The video here will show you specifics on how to crochet those time-tested potholders. In roughly 2 hours of enjoyable stitching, you'll be able to put together a lovely crochet potholder you can use in your own kitchen, or even give away as a gift. What a great feeling to be able to handcraft your own attractive and useful gifts for friends and loved ones!
And the best thing about this old crochet pattern is that you can make it yourself - whether you're a beginner at crochet or an old pro!
The crochet potholder video takes you from beginning to end - so you can see how to start your crochet project as well as how to finish it. Have fun!
