Learn to Crochet F.A.Q's

There are many reasons why a person would want to consider to learn to crochet, here are just a few of my favourites:
A huge benefit is crochet fits you, you don't have to fit it. Crochet a very forgiving technique as there is no right or wrong way to hold a hook, combine colours, stitches or techniques;
Crochet has an exceptionally rhythmic component that is therapeutic by nature. It has a calming quality and is not just a trend;
There is a rewarding sense of accomplishment when you can see, touch and use a project that you made;
The practical reason of being able to make something for yourself, as a gift or to sell is very satisfying;
Some say in a post-apocalyptical society, the crocheters will save society;
You can do it anywhere.

Having an experienced crocheter guiding you through the learning process provides an individual and unique learning experience. There are books, websites and video's galore but those mediums cannot address your distinctive learning process. Being able to sit beside someone who knows what they are doing and knows how to help you stitch-by-stitch will edge your ability to master this fine craft. Furthermore, I can answer your questions as you ask them. I have the experience and patience to make sure you fully understand each stitch before we move forward in your learning journey.

Everyone learns at a different pace. One can learn the basic technique in a few hours but to feel comfortable enough actually making something and having it look the way you think it should look is another story. It takes time and practice as the act of crocheting has many factors including how you hold the hook, guide the yarn, stabilize the piece and control your gauge. It's a multi-facetted activity that requires both your hands, all your fingers and a decent amount of concentration. The only way to really learn is to Just Crochet.
