Video tutorial – How to do Crochet
The video tutorial by Expression Fiber Arts below shows you how simple it is to learn how to crochet. She shows you exactly how to stich and she gives great tips! So pick your pattern and get creative.
What supplies do you need?
To get started on your patterns you will need crochet hooks. These come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. The bigger the hook, the wider the stich will become. Curious to see the assortment of hooks from LeafsCreations? Click here.
Yarn comes in a variety of different materials. The basic and most used material is wool, but some people think this is rather itchy. If you’re one of those people, try merino wool. This doesn’t itch so much. Click here to see more yarn.
