After watching, a few videos I decided to stick with the video below to learn the basics of crocheting.
First I practised the chaining and the single crochet
It took me a few tries to get the slip knot on to the hook to start the chain. I needed to watch the video a couple of times and then chained.
up next was practising the double crochet of DC for short in pattern reading.
The double crochet is like making 2 SC on top of one another.
Triple Crochet or TC
As you can see the stitches get larger.
This last stitch is called the Half Double Crochet or HDC.
The above stitches are the basics to all crocheting. It is with these stitches you can create patterns and make a variety of products. Some of the products you can make are:
- beanie hats
- baby booties
- dish clothes
Some of the projects I would like to complete this term are:
My challenge is going to be to get the Afghan complete this semester as there is little time in the day to sit and crochet. Keep posted for pictures of ongoing projects.
