@ OP
really nice work,love the hoodies!

I love crocheting and knitting and I've sold some of my work(scarves, beanies, neck warmers, headbands etc) I've even made my own crochet hook cos finding a crochet hook here in naija is hard ( all they got are those tiny ones), I have a few fancy headbands for ladies which were done recently that are up for. sale.

Materials for Tutorials:
1. Yarn. 2. Crochet hook. 3. Flexible fingers (so do finger exercises). 4. Lots of patience.

You can get a 7 or 8mm hook from a crochet craft pack for kids. I 've seen that sort of stuff in a toy shop.
It is also on Jumia. Just search for Clarks Crochet.
Here is what it looks like:

Hi, I 'm impressed! You really mean business, don't you? Exercise some patience, I'm just putting things together. Before the end of today, the first lesson should be ready hopefully.

[color=#000099][/color] LESSON 1: CHAIN STITCH.
Crocheted items usually begin with a series of chain stitches. Chain stitches form the foundation upon which patterns are built. You begin with making a slip knot.

Re: My Crochet Fantasy by Ynnk(f): 10:38pm On Oct 10, 2015
Your left index finger controls the yarn tension ( for right handed folks. The reverse is the case if you are left handed).

Re: My Crochet Fantasy by Ynnk(f): 4:38am On Oct 11, 2015
Make chains.

Re: My Crochet Fantasy by Ynnk(f): 4:44am On Oct 11, 2015

Your chains should be of equal sizes. But don't worry, if you don't get that right the first time. Just keep practicing!
