How to Crochet – Basics for Beginners

Learning crochet has changed my life completely. It gave me a creative outlet for my stress and improved my self-confidence a lot. I can call it a ” Life-changing art of crochet” if you may. If you are reading this, probably you want to start crocheting or you have been gifted with yarn/hooks, whatever it may be you are in right place to start your crochet journey.

I am so happy that you decided to choose Nurocrochets to start your creative journey. Happy learning!

Tips to make your learning journey easier than it ever was!

  • If you are a beginner, choose a thicker yarn (Aran, worsted weight) and a big hook (5.00 mm or 6.00 mm) to make it easy for yourself.
  • Use Light color yarn (like white, pink, peach) than dark color yarn (like black).
  • Learn how to hold the yarn and hook properly. Though it may take a while to get a proper hold, it will help you if you are a avid crocheter.
  • Maintain proper tension to make beautiful stitches. Learning to have a good grasp on how much tension, will help when you start using thin threads for lace making and jewelry making.
  • Keep a separate pouch / bag for hooks storage. This helps a lot especially if you have toddlers who knocks everything down.
  • Practice makes everything perfect; well almost, no one starts as a master, everyone starts as a student. Then, they develop their own style.

I hope to add a few more tips in the future. Let’s start.
