Learn to Crochet While Physical Distancing

Categories: Chunky Crochet, Popular


With the Coronavirus giving us plenty of time at home, it’s the perfect opportunity to learn a new skill which is good for your mind, body and soul. 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 physical 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.

    Hi Gina 🙂 We don’t have any left handed tutorials but this is something we’re working on!

    For now, all we can offer is to watch the video in a mirror.
