Hi there! I'm really intereted in learning how to crochet properly, my grandmother taught me the basic of it, like making a string and so on. But I wanted to learn more, like doing a blanket, or a scarf. Is it difficult? Do you have any tips or know any websites?

Yes, I do crochet, and enjoy it very much. I normally only do it in the winter time, for it gets a bit warm(especially if you are making an afghan). I am sure you can do a search online. Your best bet though would probably be go down to Wal-mart, Hobby Lobby or any other craft place and buy crochet patterns. It will teach you the steps and how to make what you want.

Well, I pretty much have taught myself a lot of what I know, but there are lots of books, magazines, and online ways to get patterns, and a lot of times the ones you find online are Free. Also Youtube is a great place to find Videos and such that can teach you how to crochet and even teach you step by step as in patterns as well.

I can crochet, but I wouldn't say that I am really good at it because I am not. As a matter of fact, my mother had the most difficult time teaching me to crochet because I am left handed and I tried to do whatever she showed be backwards. She was finally able to teach me by having me sit in front of her and watching her do it. I've made several baby afghans and I'm working on a full-sized afghan for my bed. As far as patterns, the only things that I am able to do are straight and waves. For me waves are easier as long as you remember to count your stitches. Whenever I try to crochet straight, I always seem to either gain a stitch or drop a stitch. Still, this is a very relaxing hobby and I'm glad that I took the time to learn it from my mother.
