Learning to crochet online takes perseverance. Our real life crochet workshops, private lessons and clinics are popular because, while there is only a handful of stitches to learn, it is hard to understand the nuanced details of crochet and it takes to time and practice to develop a comfortable technique. Also crochet patterns can be written in either UK terminology or US terminology so this is an added complexity when navigating the online resources out there.
These are some of our FAVOURITE ONLINE help & resources to help you navigate and find what you need to move forward.
