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 will consider teaching in person within 6 miles of where I live, (Massachusetts). I use Zoom for my teaching platform only. Please get familiar with Zoom on the device you will be using before coming to your lessons. Every devilce works and looks differently and I’d rather be teaching crochet than how to use your computer and the Zoom app. “Online” 30 minute sessions are permissible for only students that are comfortable with the basics: chain, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet and double crochet. If you are an absolute beginner, I recommend the first 1 or 2 lessons to be 2 hours long. After, that any time slot, (30, 60 or 90 minutes) will be fine. I look forward to meeting you!

Erin is very patient. I enjoyed the lesson even though I got a bit frustrated. Lol

Patricia (Crocheting lessons with Erin R.)

Erin is great, very patient and not at all critical of our many, many failed attempts. Crocheting is not easy! Erin is a wonderful teacher.

Crocheting Lessons

The craft of crocheting uses the crochet, a small hook on the end of a needle to create interlocking loops or stitches in various textiles. Typically crochet is used with yarn to create blankets, sweaters, scarves, and more. People have also created elegant dishes and clothing. The versatile crochet style gives the craftsperson a valuable tool only limited by your ability and imagination. People use crochet to work on a craft, spend quality social time with others, or just simply relax.

If you’re interested in learning to crochet or improving your current skills, choose a proven service that provides experienced professionals.

How can I start to learn crochet?

To get started, all you need is some yarn and needles. But without proper instruction, it could take you months or years to learn the basic stitches. It’s a better idea to find an instructor that can show you how to perform the techniques correctly and accelerate your learning in the craft of crochet.

What should I learn first when crocheting?

Aside from learning the correct type of needle for the weight of the yarn (or other textiles) you’re working with, the first stitch to learn would be the basic stitches such as the chain stitch, slip stitch, crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet. These stitches are the foundations for all other stitches.

Is crocheting hard?

No, crocheting is not hard, but it does take understanding the proper techniques to make your patterns work. With focus, instruction, and dedicated practice, you can master the fundamentals and enjoy the craft that is crochet.
