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. I believe that if you have the desire, then you can learn. The speed in which you learn may be different than the next person, but, that is o

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!

Erin was extremely knowledgeable and patient during our lessons. I'm a beginner and knew just one stitch and now know several more and have a better idea at following patterns, too! I appreciate the time and, again, patience she had for me when I dropped stitches, as well! I would highly recommend Erin to anyone who wants to up their knitting game!!

"I have to update my review now that I've had a bunch of lessons with Amy. People who can do something well and also teach well are rare and Amy is one of those. Before I started with her, I had been doing crochet using YouTube and had taken a couple of local classes. I was pulling things out and starting over frequently because i'd realize i didn't understand/had totally missed something, which was getting frustrating. Even in the live classes the teachers were nice and skilled but they didn't take the time to make sure we understood certain fundamental facts about crochet and what we were doing, focusing more on just getting it done. Amy makes a point of expressing the basic things one needs to know about the stitches we are doing, as much as helping me get the final result.

I looked up online lessons because the quarantine had started and I had purchased a sweater pattern that I really wanted to make, and thought i should be able to accomplish. Many people on Ravelry had complained about the pattern's shortcomings -- some had given up on it, though the people that did complete it, had great results - over 95 people posted pictures of their results, though some aren't quite like the advertised picture. I really wanted to make that sweater though, so I thought it was time to get some real lessons, and found Amy. The way she talked me through the pattern and other patterns, I totally got how to look at patterns and think about them. She lets you know her thought process so you can think it through yourself. Now, when i rip something out to do something over, it's not because i don't know what i'm doing so much as i now know what i'm trying to accomplish. The sweater is almost done and btw, looks just like the picture!! I've realized that it's a great idea to tell Amy whatever i'm thinking and she will give the best advice. Oh, and from the first lesson, she got me getting straight edges easily (now, it makes so much sense but at the time it seemed like a fluke whenever i had a straight edge!)"

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!

If you’re interested in learning the art of crochet, then it just might be time to turn to crochet lessons. Here at TakeLessons, we offer crochet lessons for beginners as well as students of all s

...

kill sets. Whether you’re picking up some yarn for the first time or looking to focus on specific crochet styles, our crochet courses can help you achieve your artistic goals. Sign up with us today to find crochet lessons near you.

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.

Of course, when you take basic crochet lessons, you have the opportunity to learn a new skill and take on new projects. But did you know that the act of knitting can actually have some positive effects on your health and well-being, too? 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. Not only that, but studies have shown that working with needles and yarn can potentially lower your blood pressure, reduce anxiety, limit feelings of isolation, and even help distract you from feeling chronic pain. And just think of all the socks and scarves you can make while you’re at it!

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.

The best part of all? You can ask as many questions as you like and spend as much time as you need on certain topics. When it comes to learning a new skill like crochet, nothing beats one-on-one instruction!

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 instance, maybe you can’t seem to get a grasp on a certain knitting pattern, or perhaps you need more challenging projects. Whatever your needs, your private teacher will create a tailored lesson plan for you, so you can focus on what interests you most.

With TakeLessons crochet lessons, your teacher will keep you motivated and interested while you learn to crochet at a pace that's comfortable for you. Together, you’ll work toward achieving your crochet course goals, and you’ll have a whole lot of impressive projects to show for it.

Sample Curriculum for Beginner Crocheting

In crochet lessons for beginners, 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

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

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)
