I have FINALLY figured out how to do a double crochet stitch! I looked at books and watched videos but for some reason I just couldn’t figure it out until…..I watched this expertvillage video on youtube. It just clicked for me…. the video goes slow enough and the directions are very simple.
After viewing that video….I found more from expertvillage for crocheting a hat! If you have EVER had any problems making a hat, these are the videos to watch. There are quite a few but they are step by step and extremely easy to watch. After viewing this first one just go to the right of the youtube page and check out the “Related Videos” section and you’ll see the rest of the videos in the series.
I made my first hat last night. Now I was using a different type of yarn and a bigger hook (as it was a practice run) so my had is large and rather crude compared to the video but that doesn’t take away from my exitement! I feel like a whole new crochet world has opened up for me by learning these two simple skills!
