A common question when someone is starting in the crochet world is: where do I insert my crochet hook? And the usual answer is through both loops, BUT when you learn more, you notice that you can do it in just one of them.
Single Crochet is the most basic stitch after the chain, and even though it is simple, it can be used to make a lot of different things. If you learn how to single crochet, I assure you that all the following stitches you learn will be much easier because this one is the base for many other stitches.
Counting stitches could seem like a less important ability but, in reality, is essential for any crocheter. You need to know how to count stitches to be able to follow patterns. I know you are probably thinking, do I really have to count? Yes, and like a beginner is better if you do it after finishing every row or round.
Welcome to my new Crochet for Beginners Series! I decided to create this collection of crochet basics because I know at the beginning of every new hobby, craft, or activity, it can be a little overwhelming, and sometimes even getting started is hard so, I want to do it the easiest way possible for you.
When you make any crochet project, like a round coaster, a granny square or anything, usually you close it up with a slip stitch at the end. That's ok to finish in that way, but you can see the end because there is an obvious unevenness in that place. So, here is the technique that you can use to prevent this from happening: the invisible join. Is a very simple trick but it'll be a big difference because it'll give a very professional finish to your crochet projects.
Juanito and Gus meet for the first time when both were babies. They used to live in a beautiful field surrounded by a lot of fruit trees, but these two friends were always looking for adventures, so a couple of months ago they decided to move to the city. They chose New York because Juanito says over there live the "big apples", Gus doesn't understand that but always support his best friend with his ideas.
