With the Coronavirus giving us plenty of free time at home, it’s the perfect opportunity to do all those things you don’t normally have time for like learning to crochet. Crocheting is such a beautiful way to relax and easily make scarfs and blankets.
Traditionally, crocheting has been taught by sitting beside someone and them showing you what to do. Unfortunately, the social distancing required by COVID-19 means this isn’t possible. The good news is that you can still make the most of this time and learn to crochet beautiful things using video tutorials.
Why we love crochet video tutorials
Online video tutorials mean that you can learn to crochet by yourself in the comfort of your own home. You’re able to pause and replay sections of the video as you need to and see exactly what to do with the crochet hook and yarn. In addition to showing you what to do, a good crochet video tutorial will explain what is happening and why, as well as show you how to do new techniques a couple of times.
A common beginners crochet problem
A common problem that new crocheters find is that they use a different sized yarn and crochet hook to the pattern or video tutorials which means that what they’re making looks completely different. From experience, I can tell you it feels disappointing! Always make sure you’re using the same sized yarn and crochet hook – this information is at the start of all good crochet patterns and video tutorials.

At Homelea Lass we have a range of crochet online classes available for you that include the video tutorials and written instructions. We make learning to crochet even easier with our kits that include the yarn, crochet hook, pattern and online class with video tutorials so you’ve got everything you need to make beautiful things.
