There are some things left-handed people have to learn to do with their right hands--start a car, take a picture with a standard camera, and my left-handed husband bats with his right hand because his right-handed dad taught him that way.
Crocheting should probably not fall in that category. I say this for two reasons:
- I've tried to crochet as if I was left dominant just to see if I could before. I nearly broke my brain and (even worse) almost messed up my project. I know left-handed people are probably a little more flexible about this sort of thing, but holy smokes!
- There are videos for left-handed crafters. Thank goodness.
As I said in the half double crochet post for right-handed crocheters, the half double crochet (HDC in patterns) is a nice, solid stitch that's a little taller than a single crochet stitch and a little shorter than a double crochet stitch. It's a common stitch, and I think it's a pretty one.
And now you left-handed people can join in on the fun if you've been waiting to learn! No, really! This is fun! Stop rolling your eyes at me!
Okay, I think crocheting is fun. But you probably do, too, if you're reading this. Hooray!
