Learning how to crochet can be difficult without the right tools. Having a teacher is helpful, but many people teach themselves how to crochet. Teaching yourself a new skill may sound daunting, but it’s not that hard if you use easy-to-read patterns and tutorials with step-by-step instructions and photographs.
Crochet patterns can definitely look like a foreign language if you’re a beginner. The first step in learning how to crochet is to learn basic crochet stitches.
Like any new craft the only way to learn it is to have a go, make mistakes and learn from those mistakes. Yes, it is frustrating when you have to pull out stitches because you’ve gone wrong but, unlike knitting,when you do have to pull out stitches it is very easy to see where you are and start again.
