About Crocheting

We've decided to create a site which will help new and existing crocheters to learn and further their skills. We hope you enjoy using Learn2Crochet and spread the word so more people can start making creations of their own.

Crochet is very trendy now and lots of shops are selling lovely expensive hand made items, but you can easily throw together yourself, at a fraction of the cost, and with the huge satisfaction that you made it yourself.

The Benefits of Crochet

Crochet is quick to learn and very portable, its extremily theraputic and relaxing and has even been shown to help people suffering with depression, Alzeimers and schizophrenia. So, who needs doctors and councillors when you can have inspiring yarn, hooks and the joy of creating your own wonderful peices of art.

Getting Started

We have put together some basic starting stitches for you to master along with images and diagrams so you will soon be able to read patterns for yourself and get the hang of crocheting. Once you're familiar with the basic stititches you can move onto learning about textures and maybe even create your own patterns.

Granny squares

Granny Squares are addictive! You'll soon be working all sorts of items once you've grasped how easy these are. There are so many different variations with shapes including rounds, triangles, pentagons, hexagons and octogans as well as the basic squares that you'll want to try them all. Work them in a variety of different colours and yarns to get a funky hippy look or stick to a few carefully chosen colours so you can get coordinated instead. The options are endless so... on your marks, get your hooks and GO!
