You can learn to crochet in as little as a few days. If you're looking for easy crochet projects for beginners, this is your guide! From first stitches to finishing a project, this book will lead you step-by-step along the way. I wrote this guide in a way that is easy to understand and follow for anyone interested in learning the art of crochet. I placed images and illustrations in every step so you not only read the instructions but also can visualize the steps. This is truly a beginner's guide to learn the fast and easy way to crocheting. Crochet is easy, fun to learn, and has so many possibilities for to you to be creative that I am sure you ́ll want to get started right away. Using a simple crochet hook and some yarn, string, or even thread, you create loops by pulling your yarn through other loops to create your fabric. Using this simple idea of connecting loops people have made everything from fine laces to wooly warmers, like hats and scarves, and even thicker things like carpets and crocheted baskets. Unlike other needle crafts, crochet is very forgiving. If you make a mistake, you can just pull out your loops until you get back to your error, repair it, and then pick up the next loop and carry on. You can measure on the go as you crochet, simply remove your hook, hold the piece up against whatever or whoever you might be fitting, and you will soon know if you need to add or subtract stitches or make your item longer. Crochet is also wonderfully portable. You can put a ball of yarn in your purse or tote bag and crochet in the car or while talking or watching TV. Some people even crochet while they walk! Once you learn a few basic stitches, how to read a pattern, and put in some practice time, the doors to a fantastic amount of creativity will be open to you. You will soon be able to crochet all of the lovely designs you see in magazines and online - even those adorable amigurumi figures. If you want to make something simple like placemats or washcloths, you won ́t even need a pattern, just chain enough stitches for the width and keep adding rows until your item is large enough and then tie it off. You can work with all kinds of fresh, fun, and funky yarn in hundreds of colors and textures. You will improve your technique every time you pick up your hook and yarn. If you get stuck, refer back to this little book for help, ask your friends, or drop in at your local yarn shop. You will soon find out that crocheters are a friendly, helpful bunch.
