Private Crocheting Teacher

I have a LOT of patience! All you need is the desire to learn to crochet. If you never have crocheted before, I will get you crocheting. If you want to learn, but believe you can’t learn because someone told you can’t learn to crochet, I will prove that you can crochet. If you have crocheted a long time ago, but forgot all of it or most of it, I will bring it back to you. If you already know the basics of crocheting, but don’t know how to get beyond the granny square, I can get you to the next level. If you know crocheting basics, but gave up because you make a lot of mistakes, I will show you tricks to avoid them and show you how to read your work so that mistakes are found sooner rather than later. If you know the basics, but want to learn a different technique such as color work, post stitches, or more, I can teach you. Do you have trouble reading patterns or charts, I can take the mystery out of them.

Because of COVID-19, I mostly teach online for now. If you are vaccinated, I ...

About Amy

I am extremely patient and determined to teach anyone with a desire to knit or crochet, no matter how high or low their individual learning curve seems to be.

Private Crocheting Teacher

I've been teaching Crocheting for 10 years and my students have gone on to make things as small as bracelets to something as unique as jumping rope. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to make a pencil pouch and as time goes on you'll be able to make your own blankets. I specialize in making gift like ornaments to winter apparel, typically use patterns from books and online, and have the 22 different crochet hooks and yarn available for your lessons. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Ready to learn crochet, want to brush up on some forgotten skills, or just need help with a project? I have been crocheting since i was 9 years old and teaching all ages for nearly 15 years and would love to get your (yarn) ball rolling! Specializing in pattern reading and writing, troubleshooting, improvisation, and more. No question is too big or too small! I believe that crochet is easier to pick up than knitting, so this is a great place to start for kids or first time yarn crafters and I encourage anyone to learn crochet as well if they want to pick up knitting someday.

"Erin is a very gentle, warm, easy-going instructor which is a welcome change for me as someone who is used to harsher, more pushy teachers (they have their benefits too). Though she is gentle, she remains focused on the task at hand with me during lessons. She also communicates with me throughout the week in email if I have questions. She is willing to work at my pace and teach me patterns for items I'm interested in. I wish her camera had slightly better quality with focus do I could see her fingers and the individual.yarns she's touching with greater clarity. I really like working with Erin (I think we have had around 5 lessons so far) and intend to continue for a while. She's giving me a great support system and basis for crochet ability. I basically knew nothing about crochet before starting with her."

I had the chance to participate in many of her craft shows, and the experience was terrific. Her passion for crochet became an inspiration to me. Now I love to crochet and do many things for my daughter and me. Right now, I am working on a full-size blanket, and Larianne is helping me getting the pattern right. I wish I can show pictures. Thank you very much, Larianne."

Private Crocheting Lessons Near You

The word crochet comes from a French word of the same spelling that means small hook, and the crochet needle does, in fact, resemble a little hook. Crochet needles are used to hook yarn to craft different textiles from interlocking loops (stitches).

While it's most common to crochet using yarn, you can actually use any long, skinny, and pliable material, such as string, tinsel, or even cooked noodles if you're inclined to play with food. Using the art of crochet, you make blankets, socks, sweaters, scarves, mittens, dish towels, tea cozies, and more! Your imagination's the limit!

Why Learn to Crochet?

Crochet is a very fun pastime. You can join a crochet group to socialize and make new friends. You'll enjoy making beautiful creations to enjoy yourself or to give a

...

way as heartfelt gifts. You'll also find that crochet is a great way to keep your hands and mind busy, helping you avoid other habitual behaviors, like snacking when you're on a diet or even smoking if you're trying to quit. 

Crochet's also great for your brain and body. It helps your mind and neural pathways stay strong and active to prevent age-related memory loss and cognitive decline. It improves creativity and your ability to focus. It's also deeply relaxing, helping to relieve both mental and physical stress. Plus, when you learn to crochet with a private teacher, you'll avoid all the unnecessary frustration of trying to teach yourself!

The Best Way to Learn to Crochet and What You'll Practice in Lessons

Sure, you can find lots of free crocheting lessons and tutorials online, but the best way to learn is with a private crocheting teacher. In private lessons, you'll receive your teacher's undivided attention and the sort of personalized instruction that simply isn't available in online videos or a larger class setting. With immediate feedback, you'll improve quickly, while you focus on the types of crochet projects and designs that interest you most. 

Plus, every private lesson is different. Teachers fully customize courses, while keeping in mind the student's goals, interests, existing knowledge, and preferred learning styles. For example, crocheting classes for adults differ from crocheting lessons for children in terms of course content and teaching methods. Your teacher will keep you motivated and interested while you learn to crochet at a pace that's comfortable for you. 

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Crocheting

If you've never crocheted before or only have a little experience, then beginner lessons are for you. In these lessons, your crocheting tutor will introduce you to all the fundamental skills you need to get started creating some basic crochet projects. In beginner lessons, your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Match needle size with yarn weight
  • How to hold a crochet needle
  • Get started with a slip knot
  • Learn the basic stitches (chain stitch, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet)

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Crocheting

If you have some experience crocheting and are familiar with some of the more common stitches, then intermediate lessons are for you. In these classes, you'll be introduced to some more challenging stitches and patterns, as you apply these new techniques to increasingly difficult projects. Your teacher might choose to cover the following topics:

  • Practice reading crochet patterns
  • Learn to make a granny square
  • Crocheting blankets with row systems
  • Count your stitches like a pro

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Crocheting

If you know your way around a crochet hook and ball of yarn, then advanced lessons are for you. In these classes, you'll have the opportunity to take your crochet skills to the next level, while working with a professional. Subjects taught in advanced crochet lessons depend on the student's individual interests and goals, but your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Learn to design your own patterns and unique creations
  • Create multi-piece designs
  • Turn craft to art by thinking about composition, color theory, and meaning
  • Making a business of crochet (how to share, sell, and market your patterns and creations)

How to Find a Crocheting Teacher Near You

When you sign up for lessons with a private crocheting tutor, you'll learn to make beautiful, snuggly creations from simple skeins of yarn. Luckily, finding a private teacher on TakeLessons is easy. A quick search will direct you to a list of experienced, qualified teachers who offer lessons online and in-person to students of all ages and abilities. Before choosing a teacher, we recommend browsing several profiles and reading reviews left by other aspiring yarn artists. 

The cost of crocheting classes varies, but most teachers base their rates on the length and frequency of lessons. With so many tutors to choose from, you'll have no problem finding one who fits your budget and schedule. Plus, you'll find that investing in private lessons pays off fast, as you pick up new techniques, gain speed and skill, and learn to make beautifully crocheted pieces after just a few lessons!
