How to Crochet for Absolute Beginners

The art of crocheting does not have to be difficult.  In this video, Daisy is going to teach all of us how to crochet if you are an absolute beginners. It teaches some basic stitches and skills you’ll need to know to get started.  In this video you will be learning how to make a slipknot, hold your crochet hook, crochet a chain crochet, a single crochet and how to weave in the ends of your work.

You are going to need a basic plain yarn.  It is recommended to get 100% acrylic and then for a crochet hook get aluminum crochet hooks. If you are unsure about the sizes, get a set of 4 with a bunch of different sizes and you can use them for many different projects and use them for all different types of yarn.

In this video, we are going to be using a 5.5 millimeter crochet hook.

Note: Do not start with black yarn as you may have to strain your eyes.

If you are a beginner, this video is perfect for you. Whenever you need to, paused it and tried over again. Get the hang of it. Practice to get loops to be more even and consistent. This takes practice and being consistent in the thread tension.  All the best.
