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!

I'm enjoying my classes. I've been bringing Rhiannon stitches I want to learn without any notice, and she is always able to help me on the spot to learn them.

I tried crocheting before but Lisa was able to help understand concepts and techniques that used to go over my head. 12/10 continuing lessons in the future.

Lisa was very patient and very thorough! When she saw that I was struggling with my double crochet, we started over and she taught me the proper way to do it. Her instructions were very clear and I was making a decent Granny Square (stitch pattern) after just one lesson.

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 away 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!
