Now that you’ve grauduated from Crochet University, it’s time to stock up on supplies and get started on your first crochet projects. Let’s start with yarn.  Serenity Chunky Prints and Deborah Norville Everyday Worsted Yarn are both great choices for first crochet projects. A worsted or chunky weight yarn means a project that you can complete quickly. And Serenity Chunky and Everyday both come in tons of beautiful colors and patterns.

Now, about those crochet hooks…..you will want something comfortable because once you start crocheting it’s really hard to stop! And you will need several sizes to accomodate your new patterns and yarns. Dreamz are some of our favorite hooks because they are warm and comfortable in your hands and they have a deep groove or “throat” that keeps your stitches firmly in place while you are working. Another great crochet hook set is the Amour Set. These hooks come in bright, fun colors and have a comfortable ergonomic design. Check them out!
