Learn to Crochet -- Slip Knot and Chain Stitch Video Tutorial

Let's start at the very beginning...I believe someone famous used those very words in a song once! This next set of video tutorials is for those of you who have always wanted to learn how to crochet, but didn't have someone to show you. The first, which is presented below, shows how to make a Slip Knot which is the beginning of knitting and crochet alike. It also shows how to work the Chain Stitch, which is the beginning base of a crocheted piece. 

 Over the next week or so, I will present more crochet videos for the basics such as single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet and triple crochet stitches. I'll also show how to increase and decrease. After that, we'll get into some fancier stitch patterns that can be used for many crocheted items. If there is a stitch that you are having particular trouble with or would just like to learn, write a comment and I'll see if I can do a video on it for everyone.

  • I have watched a lot of your videos so far, and I will keep watching, till I have watched all. I think you are a great teacher :D
    I have learnt some of the basics of crotchet from my mother in law (without the correct names and terms), now she is away from the country (for only 3 weeks) and I have taught myself a lot more from blog, I cannot wait for my mother in law to come back so I can show off to her how much more I have learnt, thanx again.

  • I am a Swedish mother with a little girl that 4 months old and I really wanted to crochet some cute hats and such for her, the only problem is that nobody I know could teach me! I have tried to look at loads of videos on youtube, different crochet sites etc and this is the first one that I could actually understand. You are a fantastic teacher! Thank you so much! Kindest regards,
