How Tuesday – Learning New Stitches

Gone are the days when you have to personally know someone to show you a new stitch for crotchet.

When I took back up crochet this last year, I needed a refresher on some basic stitches, but didn’t have my mom or aunts handy to show me the stitches as they did when I was younger.  So, …

I turned to YouTube.

There are MANY a video tutorial online for how to do many stitches, from the basic single crochet  – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqhaQQajt0U to many more detailed stitches (search to your heart’s content).

One thing to be aware of, when watching these videos, make sure the videos are shot from the perspective as though you were looking at your own piece of work or you will learn the stitch “backwards”.
