free crochet lessons

Hey guys! Are you ready for some free crochet lessons? Don’t get all nervous on me now! Learning how to crochet is a very easy and forgiving process. Like learning to draw, you can erase your mistakes, and start over. You can noticeably see how much progress you make with each piece. Once you learn the basics, with a little imagination, you could create anything you want.

I’ve created a detailed guide that shows you all the basics with a little bit of extra knowledge. Through each step you’ll learn at your own pace, step by step. At the end of each lesson you’ll get a quiz to keep everything you’ve learned firmly planted in that brain of yours. Don’t worry, you’ll ace them!

Quick list of what you'll learn

  • Differences between yarn.
  • Which hook is best for you?
  • Ability to read a pattern.
  • Recognize stitches by sight.
  • Single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, triple/trebel crochet.
  • How to work in a round, magic circle, etc.
  • Increasing, decreasing.

You’ll also learn how to create your first amigurumi, a little owl with a graduation cap! You’ll learn the basics of stuffing and attaching pieces. Throughout all lessons you’ll learn tips and tricks as well as common mistakes to avoid.

Introduction

So you browsed the quick list of what you’ll be learning and decided to take a deeper look to see if the ecourse is right for you. Each lesson you’ll get pictures as well as illustrations to show you each stitch step by step. You’ll also get videos if you need to watch in real time.

After each lesson you’ll receive “homework”. All this does is help make stitching second nature. Even if you’re looking to just refresh your memory on stitches I suggest doing them! The final part of each lesson is a quick quiz. Don’t worry, I’m not grading you. It’s just to help refresh little points that can easily be browsed over or missed.

Comments will be open on each lesson if you have any questions. Feel free to answer other commenters questions too! Typically I have an open policy on comments, but for this ecourse I’d like it to be filled with positivity and support. Rude and obviously spam comments will be deleted.

International Students: I’ll be using American English terms as I’m from the US. At the end of each lesson I’ll show the conversion for UK terms.
