Knit And Crochet For Beginners
I meet many people who say they want to learn how to knit or crochet. You know what? It’s not all that difficult. There are many ways to learn to knit and crochet for beginners. The best way is to learn from someone that is already doing it. Back in the day, mothers used to teach these crafts to their daughters. It was seen as something a woman should be able to do. She should be able to cook, sew, and knit and crochet.
Nowadays, many women have jobs and they simply don’t have time. Also, we have stores that sell clothing for much cheaper than we can make because they are mass produced on industrial machines.
However, there is nothing like creating an item that will be used and loved by someone simply because you have made it by hand. But how do you learn?
First, get yourself a knitting and crochet kit. Then you should use one of the methods below to learn.
Find someone who can teach you
The best way is to find someone who is willing to teach you. You can join a knitting and crochet club where there are women who come together once a week and there you will be able to find someone who is good at it that are willing to teach you. If you don’t have a knitting club in your area, there are other ways you can learn with a practical, hands on approach.
You can buy an online class that will teach you step-by-step. The teacher will show you how it’s done, and you can follow along, creating your first project as you go. If you click on the links below, you will find a list of classes you can take at each.
Learn from books
If you prefer figuring things out yourself like I do, these books below are for you.
