Beginner crochet tips from a pro who has 50 years of experience! Stacey Schmidt has been crocheting since she was 5-years-old and shares her best advice for those just starting out, her history with textile creation, and we test out her signature product available in her Etsy shop – wine glass holders!
Stacey’s 5 Beginner Crochet Tips:
- Getting started with the first two rows will be the hardest, but doing it over and over will put you at ease.
- Start off with easy project of just making a square and incorporating different stitches every few rows.
- Make sure your practice yarn is solid so it won’t split.
- Use a needle size that is comfortable for you to use and matches up with the yarn size.
- Just have fun and know if you mess up you can rip it out and start over easily.
