I really enjoyed this site and learned a lot.Thanks.I’ll have to save this as a guide
1992 Auntie Annies mile a minute is excellent for someone just learning. She has you doing five different stiches.
You have some great tips also.
A really helpful list for a beginner
Thank u for all the help!! Love this!
This is an OK list, but I’d edit the hook information. A size G by one manufacturer is not the same as a size G by another. It would be more accurate to discuss actual size–3.75mm, or 5.0mm for example. Additionally, there is nothing in your list that speaks to the importance of guage. Gage is probably one of the most important things a new crocheter can learn to improve his/her projects.
I have a neat little tool that has holes of varying sizes. Find the hole where your hook fits exactly and it tells you the size in letters and millimeters. It helped me find the sizes of some vintage hooks and a couple that the printed sizes had worn off. It also has knitting needle sizes and a gauge check section. Mine is a Susan Bates brand and came from Joanne Fabrics, but I bet there are other brands and dealers available.
whhat crochet hooks are true to size
Hooks C and D are true to size. Sizes E-K are actually known to be one size bigger than their marked sizing.
I’ve been crocheting for a lot of years, but have recently been asked to help some new crocheters learn. i learned some new things, and was reminded of some basics that I haven’t thought of for awhile that will help my learners. Thanks, for this collection of ideas!
