The Knitters Guide to Crochet

Are you a knitter? Have you always wanted to crochet? Well, next week I'm going to explain crochet from the perspective of knitting. 


Yes, I'll wait while you cheer. :P

Learning crochet was really difficult as a knitter. The style and movement of crochet is very different then what knit work calls for. But as I learned I noticed many similarities, many things that, if taught through the eyes of a knitter, would have helped make the transition easier for me. 

Thus starting next week I will be publishing a knitters guide to crochet. You, too, can learn!

Table of Contents:
5) Crochet in the Round
6) Embellishing a finished item

I hope my simple guide can help fellow knitters attain their crochet dreams!

*This guide is not meant for non-knitters. If you don't know how to knit and would like to learn crochet, I recommended Crochet School by CraftyMinx

  1. Sounds great! :) I knew the very basics of crochet long, long ago...when I was about eight or nine, some of the ladies at church tried to teach us girls. Honestly, I want to learn how to crochet because of 1) Granny squares, and 2) the adorable 3D plushie patterns that require crochet. I much prefer the look of knitting, but seriously...as a Doctor Who fan, I *need* to crochet the Tenth Doctor (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/tenth-doctor-who-amigurumi-pattern) and an Adipose (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/adipose), at the very least. :)
