Since August, Ellis and I have been learning how to crochet. It’s a mumble jumble of fingers getting tangled up in yarns and losing tension with the hook. The only thing I can make so far is this single crochet square; it’s uneven at the sides when I miscount the rows or accidentally skip a stitch. These are the only two samples that have consistency.
The YouTube video experts make it seem so simple and straightforward, but when you’re multitasking with yarn, fingers, and hook, it’s nothing but. It’s a learning process for all of us as the kiddos watch me huffing and puffing and reading written instructions multiple times in kid-crochet manuals. I’m going through the mucky process of learning so that when they get to it, they’ll have it more simplified.
I took a fellow homeschooler’s Heavens to Betty suggestion and ordered a loom set on Amazon. Her kids have found this to be of help. This may help us gain confidence and make some projects to use or give as gifts to friends.
