i learned to crochet about 3 years ago. i had been knitting for a few years, and was always hearing people argue about which was faster... so i thought i'd try out crocheting to see what it was like. turns out i like it a million times better. you can add so much more variation to your projects without too much more to learn. yay!

I learned to crochet around the age of 10 I think. Can't really remember, but back then I definately still played with dolls, cause my first crocheted object was a skirt for a doll. I learned from my mum, but didn't stick to it.
Then a few years ago(age 16) I crocheted some scarves. Now, that I've learned to knit last year, I'm also back to crochet and this time I know better what I'm doing! No more unintended increases and decreases  Roll Eyes

When I was 14 or 15 I wanted to make a backpack purse ( it was my first purse and since I was tomboyish I needed it to be a backpack) and my mom suggested I crochet it. She had crocheted when she was younger so we went and got a small book with instructions and a few patterns. I still have the first set of hooks she bought me and the last of the yarn from that project. I also still have the back pack and use it every so often. It has survived 3 zippers and 8 years! Interesting post to read!

In February or March of this year, I think.  I've still got lots to learn, but I've made it past that crucial stage where you're trying to get your head around turning chains.  I came close to giving up many times, but I just kept working at it over and over.  I bought lots of how-to books.  If something wasn't clear to understand in one book, I'd refer to another and another until someone explained it to me in a way that made sense.  Now I know that I can at least make a scarf or basic bag in the round if I put my mind to it and that's a start.  I've heard it said that crochet is easier than knitting.  Yeah right!!!   Cheesy

I think crochet is easier for your hands to manage, but maybe harder for your brain to figure outthe stitches until you get the hang of it. I learned to knit first and wasn't very good at it... then I learned to crochet and it was really easy. Then I picked up knitting again and I was still a bit awkward for my hands but a bit easier to read the patterns.

i agree with that.  i learned to crochet first, and every now and then when i'm bored and try to knit, like it's easy to do the stitches, but i'm so clumsy with the needles it makes it harder.

My grandmother tried to teach me to knit when I was about 6, but she was left handed so I had a really hard time learning how to hold the needles! Then, I went to a friend's house for Christmas about 4 years ago and she was making a simple scarf for her husband. She showed me the basics and then let me finish the scarf. I have been crocheting ever since. My new project is flowers.

"Why, I've done all the screaming already," said the Queen. "What would be the good of having it all over again?"

I was in the hospital twice a couple years ago and since you're basically stuck inside all day you'll do a lot of projects and activities to keep busy, these activities went in trends. The first time it was beading and colouring(if you can picture like 20 adult women sitting around colouring) the second time it was crocheting. I figured, that I didn't have much else to do so it didn't hurt to learn. My first project was a scarf that looked horrible, I stopped when I got home, but I'm starting it again. I'm still not very good, but I'm getting better.
