Who Is This Crochet Shawl Video Tutorial For?

I think the Rising Tide Shawl is a particularly good pattern for less-experienced pattern readers to practice alongside because it’s fairly short and concise. Part of learning to read patterns is just figuring out how all the sometimes complicated-sounding crochet lingo actually translates to the simple crochet skills you might already know. With that in mind, I recorded this video tutorial to try to best explain both the written pattern as well as the simple repeats that result from it.

This crochet shawl video tutorial is perfect for:

• Confident beginner crocheters who want to make a scarf that looks way more complicated than it is.

• Visual and auditory learners who like to see and hear things explained.
