Beginner crochet afghan instructions
The biggest question you have is how to read the crochet instructions, right?
There are two ways: the first is to read the pattern with lots of abbreviations that you need to know, and the second is to be able to read from a diagram.
Below is a chart that you can print out. It gives you all the symbols that you will find on a diagram and what they mean. It also gives you the abbreviations. I recommend that you print it out, have it laminated and always have it with you so you can refer to it. If you click on the picture, it will take you through to a course on how to read patterns and diagrams. If you just want the chart, Download it here. Also, everything is in the book I recommend below.
I highly recommend the courses. However, if you’d rather learn from a book, here’s a very good one:
This book has absolutely everything you need to know about crocheting, with step-by-step instructions on every little thing you need to know. It takes you from beginner to advanced.
