Learn how to crochet

Crochet is the foundation of all of my creative journey. Learning to crochet opened up a world of creativity for me. It helped me not only learn how to make things with my hands, but allowed my mind to relax, and soul to open up to many possibilities.  In the videos below, I will show you how to learn to crochet from how to hold your yarn to creating stitches. The goal of this series is to get you to make at least one item, whether that be a scarf, a few lines, or something new and exciting!
