I'm trying to learn to crochet. OK.... I've been "trying" for years. LOL I struggle with reading crochet patterns. It's like reading a foreign language to me. I just don't get it. I buy patterns and try to follow them only to rip it apart and try over again and again. I know it's just me being a newbie at crocheting and not the pattern but AHHH, it can be so frustrating! So I got on YouTube and found this video on how to make Mary Jane Slippers. The owner of the YouTube channel is "Glama". My dream would to look as good as she does when I'm 49 years old. She seems like the sweetest lady. I love her voice and how she chit chats while doing tutorials. I followed her video on how to make the slippers and flowers. You can find the flower tutorial HERE. It was so much easier for me to follow along to a video than read a pattern. At least while I'm still in newbie mode. Please check out her YouTube channel, HERE, if you are learning to crochet.
I'll post pics when I'm done with the pair for my daughter. I'm thankful for people like Glama who offer free tutorials for people like me to learn.
Do you crochet? Was it hard for you in the beginning to read patterns?
