Learn to Crochet Videos
This series of Beginners videos is designed for the absolute beginner, with no previous experience. I take you slowly, step-by-step from making your slipknot at the beginning, right though to finishing of your ends.
You will need some (UK) weight double Knitting acrylic yarn in a light, or bright colour, plus a 4mm crochet hook (a 4.5mm hook can be handy to have as well). I also suggest to purchase a couple of stitch markers, but don't worry if you don't have these, you can use a spare scrap of yarn instead.
You can pick and choose these videos in any order and each one will help you to develop a new skill. So dive in and I hope you enjoy learning to crochet with me. . .
