I learned to knit when I was in fifth grade and ever since then I have loved making random things like bags, scarfs, and (attempting) sweaters lol. So, one day I was on Pinterest looking for knitting patterns for infinity scarfs and I came across a video for crocheting, which looked WAY easier than knitting. I of course immediately started looking up YouTube videos to see if it was going to be something I could even teach myself to do and sure enough it was surprisingly easy!
That day I went to Michael’s craft store and I got a crochet needle set and some yard and I started following a YouTube video on how to make a baby blanket. It was tricky at first to understand all the terms and to figure out what I was doing but literally after like 2 rows muscle memory takes over and you coast from there. I wish I could remember the actually video I used but I can’t. Although, if you just type in the YouTube search “crochet for beginners” or “Learn how to crochet” a bunch of videos pop up that are super helpful and go step by step. I think this is the best way to learn because you can pause the video and rewind a bunch until you get it. I did this twice, both times making a blanket because it was a simple square pattern.
