Crochet: 12 Things Every Beginner Crocheter Needs to Know

Crocheting may be slightly tricky to say, and in some cases, even harder to spell, but it doesn’t have to be hard to do! If you are a newbie to the world of crocheting, read on for 12 things you need to know for crocheting success!

1. Cheap yarns are known for their stiffness. I don’t know about you, but how uncomfortable would it be to wear a stiff, itchy scarf? Never fear, Craft Sauce is here, and with an awesome method that uses shampoo to soften stiff yarn.

2. Switch hooks when you notice that your stitches are either too loose, or too tight. If your stitches are too loose, use a smaller crochet hook. If they are too tight, use a larger crochet hook. It seems basic, but many beginners over look the crucial hook switch!

3. However, it is important to try and avoid switching hooks in the middle of a project. Of course, the rules are different when your stitches aren’t the right size, but you want the stitches throughout your project to look as unified as they possibly can! Tip from The Spruce.
