When it comes to learning something new, there’s no better place to start than the very beginning. And for those who are so new to crochet that they find the simple task of going to the yarn store overwhelming (we’ve all been there!), there’s no better place to start your crocheting journey than Look, Learn, & Create.
Filled with everything you need to begin crocheting, including hook charts, yarn weight descriptions, vocabulary definitions, and step-by-step images on how to hold your hook, Look, Learn & Create is one of the best beginner’s guides to learning how to crochet.
The great thing about Look, Learn, & Create is that you learn specific techniques one lesson at a time…and then there’s a project to help you fine tune that lesson. Each project has a section calling out what you’ll learn in completing the pattern (“How to read a pattern with several steps”, “How to measure and adjust gauge”, and “How to join two stitches with a slip stitch”, for example), a full materials list, and a call out as to what stitches are used to complete the project. Throughout the project, there are helpful hints and suggestions, troubleshooting tips, and several step-by-step photos of the project in progress.
As is the case in many lessons and classes, projects get more difficult as the book progresses, but even the most challenging project in the book is layed out and described so even the newest of crochet fans can make it with no problem at all.
If you’ve been meaning to learn how to crochet, there’s no better time to start…and with the help of Look, Learn & Create: Crochet, you’ll find yourself “hooked on crochet” in no time!
