As if learning to sew wasn't taxing enough, I decided I wanted to teach myself
The hook and yarn arrived and following the tutorial on You Tube I wanted to follow (link below) I set out learning a few basic steps. The hardest bit was actually holding the yarn and making sure the tension was right. This did not come naturally, but after persevering I had learned how to do chaining. A chain in the crochet world is a when you have a slip knot already on the crochet hook and pull the yarn through to make a chain. After doing this for a good half an hour, I moved onto what is known as 'fourth from the hook' in patterns or 'double crochet'. This I found challenging, so will stop here as I need to go and practice the double crochet as apparently it is the most used stitch in crochet!
Happy Crocheting x
P.S. I need to make a storage case for crochet kit so will be doing a blog on that soon :)
- I bought my first bits from eBay and it cost me less than £8 - a cheap lay out cost to test drive the new hobby.
