SAHM In Nd of Crocheting Help...B4 I Lose My Sanity!!!

Posted by on May. 12, 2012 at 1:19 AM

I am a stay at home mom and student. I recently found myself having one of my many "losing my mind with boredom" episodes. So I took a trip to Walmart, Michaels, and Target. I got a sewing machine, some thread, needles, fabric...Crochet needles, yarn, and paint etc. Any craft item u can think of I bought.

I really wanna learn how to make some baby items and other everyday items by crocheting. If anyone has any tips, please let me know. Thanks so much!wave

You tube has tons of videos. Pintrest is also pretty heplful. Plus there is amazing talent in this group! Good luck and can't wait to see what you end up making

The easiest to start with would just be to make a chain and single crochet it. You could make an entire blanket out of single crochet's and chains in varying colors. That's how I started when I was 9 or 10, single crochet scarfs lol

Check out youtube or ravelry for crochet tips. Or google and see if there is a local fiber store near you that offers classes. If you have a Joanns near you they offer classes too. :)

Crochet is easy to start with.  I've made a ton of blankets.  I've upgraded to Cross Stitch which takes time and patience.  I started with the "How To" books and was well on my way to nice pretty blankets in no time.

Good Luck!

I'd look on TipNut.com. They have oodles of projects, with full tutorials. Everything from makeup bags to cloth diapers to kitchen decor.
