Learn to Crochet Part 1: Crochet Basics


Welcome to Crochet University!

Welcome to Crochet University’s first semester recap. How have you been getting along in your course work?

For Crochet University you will need some basic supplies. To begin, we’re going to be using Macra-Made super bulky yarn and a large crochet hook. The advantage of using a bulky weight yarn to begin with is that the loops and stitches are much more easily visible as you’re learning.

You will also need an easy-to-use crochet hook. We recommend Dreamz Crochet Hooks. Dreamz hooks are designed by people who know and understand the art of crochet. All hooks have grooves that stitch slippage, making life a bit easier for beginning crocheters. Dreamz hooks have a polished wood surface that insures effortless glide – they work with every type of material.
