Learn to Crochet

This book was given to me as a gift in 1972 which got me on the way to learn how to crochet.  Being left handed it was a bit of a challenge.  However, I am glad I have mastered the art of working with the crochet hook.  I learned the basics from this and adapted it myself for my left handed work.  It is very interesting that there is so much out there for right handed people, yet we left handers have to adapt not just our needlework but also using things like tin openers etc.  I met many left handers like me would love to have the choice of using a left handed gadget for a change.  However saying that I have the benefit of being able to use my right hand equally with my left and use the mouse and mat on the right hand side of my computer.  I iron right handed too.

Have fun with the books I have selected for you to learn how to crochet.

Below are several other books which may help to inspire you to also learn how to crochet.

I really love to see the works I have done in my home and caravan.

I met a lady recently who was impressed with what I was doing and wanted to learn more on how to learn how to do crochet herself.

Hence the reason I have got this group of books together to help others who may also looking to learn too.
