The Beginning of My Crochet Journey

I have been crocheting for more than 8 years now.  I believe that my knowledge and skills have improved immensely.

I took an interest in learning to crochet when I watched my co-worker crocheting wedding favours for her son’s wedding. She taught me the difference between knitting and crocheting.

The biggest obstacle for me was to learn to crochet with my left-hand since most of the crochet tutorials  were taught by right-handed crocheters.  With lots of practice and replaying the YouTube videos over and over again, I was able to learn the basics crocheting skills. From there, I challenged myself to go beyond the basic skills.  I believe it is safe to say that I am “hooked” on crocheting!

The first wearable item I ever made was the Puff Stitch Scarf for my friend’s birthday. (See photos above). I continued to learn through video tutorials where I became much more confident reading patterns and making more advanced projects.

The photos on the left are a variety of wearable garments that I have made.  Some of the garments were more challenging than the others. For people who are wanting to learn how to crochet, I just want them to know that it does take time and patience to learn. Speaking from experience, I know it gets frustrating sometimes when you do not get it right the first time.  You would need to take a break from it and then try again.

 If you have any questions, please feel free to message me. I am more than happy to help any new crocheters to be “hooked” in the world of crocheting.
