The Basics of Crochet for Beginners from a Beginner

Michael Jordan, 
when asked what makes him so good at basketball answered: 
"I mastered the basics."  
In this post you will learn a few basics of crochet. I present to you these videos as a beginner myself, sincerely hoping that together, we would learn from them.  Here you will learn: How to hold your yarn and hook and how to crochet some basic stitches like the slip knot, chain, single crochet, double crochet and treble (or tripple) crochet.  I hope you will find these videos informative and satisfying.

How to Hold the Yarn and the Hook
Just in case, this is what i said:
"Let's do that again." and "Pull it up a bit."

I realized I said those to fast and it sounded funny :-)

How to do a Slip Knot

How to crochet a Chain

How to do a Single Crochet

How to do a Double Crochet

How to do a Treble Crochet

Michael Jordan wanted to be good at basketball and he did what it takes to fulfill his desire.  We want to be good at crocheting too: to make really pretty pieces of clothing, accessories, gifts.... the list is endless... We can follow a pattern that someone else made, or we can start making our own patterns.  Do it just for fun or maybe start a small business... pass the time or earn some money... The possibilities are really endless.  To be good at something, first we have to know the basics.  

Some of you may already have been doing crochet for many years, just don't know what the technical terms are for the steps and techniques employed in crochet.  Well, that's okay.  But if you want to learn more, I have put up a series of mini video tutorials that I thought might help.  Please bookmark this page for future reference and share it with your friends.  I hope that you would continue to learn and enjoy crochet.

These series of brief video tutorials are designed for crochet beginners.  These are my first video tutorials so I welcome all comments, even violent reactions. *wink
