Last week, I got a surge of requests from my Ravelry group to post a video of me crocheting.
Who am I to say no?
So… here it is! (Click on the box in the lower right hand corner of the video to view in full-screen)
When do you need to change your technique?
Most of the time, I’ll say: you should crochet however you feel like it. Don’t worry about how I crochet. However, there are a few signs that you should change your crochet technique. If you:
- experience pain after only a short period of crocheting
- have difficulty getting even stitches
- struggle to tension your yarn properly
- find crocheting difficult or annoying
… then the problem might be your technique! Go ahead and watch how I crochet (and watch some other folks, too!) and see if there are some changes that you can make to your style.
Crocheting should make you happy, not ouchy!
