3 More Easy Crochet Lessons-YouTube Crocheting

Updated on January 31, 2013

I figured I would do 3 more easy crochet lessons that I learned on YouTube so others know how easy it is to learn from video watching. Here are the ones I learned next...

How to Crochet a Easy Pretty Rose Flower by BobWilson123

This flower was a little hard for me to do which I had to pause multiple times to get right. I LOVE BobWilson123's videos and I'm sorry to the others, but she explains the patterns very well for a semi-beginner like me. I did think it was great though that the flower really does resemble a rose and for my first time it came out very nice!

How To Crochet a Basket Weave Stitch by Mikeyssmail

This is called the basketweave stitch and I have seen this stitch used for purses and handbags, maybe a scarf? I did try this pattern for a headband and a hat, and in my opinion I wouldn't use this stitch for anything on your head. I am wanting to try it on maybe a case for my laptop but I'm not sure yet. I love how Mikeyssmail is one of the crocheting video teachers that does right hand and left hand tutorials which I think is awesome!

Magic Circle-Crochet by Tjw1963

I know that this video looks a little easy to do but seriously I had to watch it 3 times to get the hang of, and almost said screw it. BUT when you do the magic circle for hats, you don't have that little hole on the top of your crochet hat. I don't know about you, but I don't like that little hat. I had no idea how to get rid of the hole until I had a pattern and she didn't tell me how to start the pattern without a magic circle so I had to learn it. The hat turned out perfect (with no hole) and my daughter loves it!
