If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to crochet, even if you’ve never picked up a hook, this video course is for you! Learn all the fundamentals of crochet while making a modern and cozy pair of fingerless mitts.
I know many readers of Make & Do Crew are already enthusiastic crocheters. But for those of you who aren’t, yet wish to be, I want to teach you how!
If you follow me on Instagram, you know I’ve been shooting videos like I’m some kind of yarn-obsessed Wes Anderson lately. Well, that’s because I partnered with the video learning community, Skillshare, to create a comprehensive crochet 101 course and it’s live and open for enrollment today!
This modern crochet fundamentals course covers everything you need to know to get started crocheting, but not a bunch of extra info that will distract you and slow you down. In the course, you’ll learn:
– how to choose a yarn and hook
– how to start any project with a chain stitch
– how to do a single crochet stitch
– how to do a variation on single crochet that results in a look very similar to knitting
– and how to finish a project off, including sewing pieces of crocheting together
Perhaps the best part of this course is that you will be learning to crochet by making a totally rad pair of fingerless mitts! I had so much fun designing a project that I think is both extremely accessible for beginners AND cool enough to be worth your time to make. (I love washcloths, but really, fingerless mitts are such a cooler first project!)
Check out the course overview video below to get a good idea of everything you’ll learn by spending an hour or two hanging out with me and some yarn. (Or just watch it because we’re usually communicating with each other through blog comments, email and social media and you’re curious what my face looks like when it’s moving…Ha.)
Since childhood I have loved teaching people how to crochet and I would be honored to have the chance to do the same for you or someone you know who wants to learn. I’m always available on the blog, by email or on Instagram to answer your questions as you get started!
