Learn to Crochet!

I like to crochet. As I’ve said before, my Grandma Bessie tried to teach me thread crochet when I was a kid, but I never really got it. It wasn’t until one summer in high school when I was trapped at my parents’ house with no car and nothing to read that I taught myself to crochet from an old book I found in my mother’s closet, and I’ve had something to do with my hands and brain ever since.

With March being National Crochet Month, this would be a ideal time for you to learn to crochet. Just grab a copy of our best-selling updated edition of I Can’t Believe I’m Crocheting or the brand new edition of 10•20•30 Minutes to Learn to Crochet, a crochet hook, and a skein of medium (worsted) weight yarn, and you’ll be crocheting in no time! (One of the great things about both of these books is that it doesn’t matter if you’re right- or left-handed. They include instructions for both!)

Do you learn more effectively from one-on-one with a teacher than you do from a book? Our DVD, I Can’t Believe I’m Crocheting in Motion, hosted by popular designer/instructor Melissa Leapman, is the perfect resource as she guides you step-by-step through the process.

If, unlike me at age 8, you think you might be ready to experiment with thread crochet, take a look at the Ultimate Guide to Thread Crochet. It’s got step-by-step instructions, a total of 23 projects including a necklace, coaster, doilies, snowflakes, baby stuff, pretty edgings, fashion accessories, and more, plus an introduction to filet crochet.

Are you an experienced crocheter looking for something a little different? Try yourhand with ribbon. Teach Yourself Crochet Ribbon Accents by Lisa Gentry features 11 fun projects featuring ribbon used to crochet accents and even a necklace, scarf, and shawl.
