Don’t know how to crochet? It’s easy to learn!
Don’t know how to crochet, but want to learn? It’s SO easy to crochet, and you can learn to do it very quickly.
I learned to crochet as an adult by watching tutorial videos on YouTube, and was able to pick it up pretty fast.
It all started when I saw a cute crochet winter hat that I wanted for my young son, but it was over $30…kind of expensive in my book for a hat that he would grow out of in one season.
So I decided to see how hard it would be for me to learn to make the hat myself. I found some great tutorials on YouTube and made my first project in just a few hours.
And I did end up making that hat for my son…for only about $1 (just the cost of the yarn), and my son was thrilled with it!
Now I’ve made all kinds of gifts for family and friends, including baby hat and bootie sets, scarves, coffee cozies, and all kinds of beanies. And it never fails that the gift recipient always squeals with delight and gushes over the gift and declares that they can’t believe that I made it myself!
