Crochet Basics Ages 13-18
Learn how to begin crocheting and practice stitches
We first will begin discussing yarns and needles. What the numbers mean, what the labels tell you , deciding on which needle (hook) to use,how to hold your work, how to begin a project , and how to begin understanding the crochet terminology. Then we will begin practicing stitches. The first stitch you will learn is the chain stitch. Then, as time allows you will learn single crochet, half double crochet and double crochet stitches. Details about stitches we tend to explore as we are...
Learners become familiar with terminology, Learners gain understanding of hooks and yarn styles, Lear.ers begin practicng basic chain stitch After the chain stitch, we will begin other stitches. The order will go: single crochet, slip stitch, half double crochet and more ( the amount of stitches you learn depends on how well the previous stitch is understood and skillfully executed. This takes time and likely will need practice).
I learned to crochet at a really young age and have always enjoyed it! I am self taught and have really enjoyed watching YouTube videos of different techniques. I've crocheted for around 15 years now.
