Learn how to crochet

I would like to start with the basics of crochet. What do you need to start? You will need some yarn, a hook (usually whatever your yarn skein refers you to use or whatever the crochet pattern you use mentions), a pair of scissors and a yarn needle for weaving in the end. Thats it! Nothing more is needed to learn how to crochet.

Lets start by learning how to slip knot, single crochet (aka “sc”) and slip stitch (aka “sl st”)

Have you ever tried the foundation single crochet (aka “fsc”)? Its is a faster technique than first creating a chain and then adding row of single crochet on top. The foundation single crochet lets you create the foundation chain plus the single crochet row all at the same time. Check out my video below on how its done:

I recently needed to use the front post double crochet (aka “fpdc”) and back post double crochet (aka “bpdc”) for a hat to create a ripple effect. I really like this technique as it almost looks like it was knitted rather than crocheted. In the video below, I teach you exactly step by step on how to do this technique:
