Lesson Details

Crocheting

Levels Taught:
Beginner

I am a very back-to-basics teacher. Crochet is a craft where learning the absolute basics will allow you to create incredible things. Just using the basics of chaining, single crochet, double crochet, color-changing, and crochet in the round, I was able to invent patterns for and create over a dozen unique pillows for my friends. Learning a stitch like a half-double back post crochet may sound impressive, and can allow you to create a unique design, but it's not necessary to make something beautiful.

I will walk you through the basics of crochet and teach you to make a few basic things to get a feel for the craft. I can also assist you in reading a pattern you may have found somewhere, as well as trying to determine how something you found was made so you can try to recreate it. I will also walk you through the basic terminology and mechanics of the craft, such a hook size, yarn weight, and things like that.

I am a law student currently looking to do some extra work and make a little money on the side. I began to crochet about three and a half years ago, picking up a how-to book, a hook, and some yarn from my local Micheals. I wanted something to do with my hands while watching TV aside from playing Minecraft for the thousandth time, and crochet became the answer.

Crochet is an excellent hobby, especially for a person with ADHD like myself. It allows me to occupy my hands when doing something else, while at the same time creating creative and useful. It can also be a great stress reliever, allowing you to get lost in the repetitive, almost mindless motions of the hook and yarn.

I look forward to meeting with you and passing on the knowledge I have acquired.

Samuel was patient, knowledgeable and provided me with excellent feedback. I learned more than I could have imagined in just one lesson.
