1  CROCHET / Crochet: Discussion and Questions / Re: how did you learn to crochet? on: May 29, 2005 11:46:47 AM
One of my parents' neighbors taught me when I was 4. I could make chains, single crochet, and use the ripple afghan stitch. I picked it back up again when I was 14 and learned to do the rest of the stitches from "Crocheting in Plain English."

LOL. Personally, I only work on *gasp* one project at a time, otherwise I never finish anything.

And always, always buy more yarn for a project than you think you need.

Lucky me, I learned to crochet as a kid (knit, embroider, quilt, and sew too!) but didn't pick it up again until I was about 18.  I bought the Crocheting in Plain English book and have used it as reference.  It was GREAT.  The projects are a little hokey and dated, but the techniques and presentation are top-notch. 

Same here, I learned to crochet when I was 4. The projects in that book aren't hokey--they're AWFUL. And really hard, too. But I haven't found a better one yet for learning stitches, etc.

Ugh. I'm a crocheter and tried to learn to knit. I *can* knit, but I hate it, it's soooo slooooow. Smiley
I second what xxqualmxx said. Buy an I hook and some cheap acrylic yarn and go for it.
When I got serious about crocheting and wanted to learn more than just single crochet (the basic stitch) I bought Crocheting in Plain English by Msomething Righletti (wrong spelling, I'm sure) which was GREAT. Your library might have it.

That'll teach me to ignore threads I started. I accidentally deleted the pic from my photobucket account...and my computer....whoops....Sad Massive frustration with jewelrymaking led me back to my old love, crochet, and I've been doing that since. Thanks, though, all.

PS--you get rid of fingerprints by lightly rubbing your finger on the clay, the oil in your fingers removes the prints.

Don't you love how they always put "hand crocheted" on things?

Crocheting has yet to be mechanized....

I dislike crocheting eyelash yarn, too, but it works if you use it held together with a thin acrylic blend (anything that's very smooth, really) in the same color. Still can't really rip out stitches, though. And polar-blend (by Lion Brand?) is AWFUL for crochet.

I always fall in love with the $30 a skein hand dyed mohair or whatever. It's my dream to be able to afford enough for an afghan......

Those are very cute. Lovely embroidery.
It would be kind of funny to see a cute animal with big sailor tatoos. Smiley
