I want everyone to learn how to crochet. Even those who’ve tried and given up. That’s why I have written a free ebook aimed at teaching complete novices how to pick up a hook and make a granny square.
Inside you will find everything you need to know from how to hold the hook to changing colours to weaving in ends and even the mysterious “blocking”.
I include detailed step by step instructions with a picture for every step.
It is available free on most online book selling sites including Kobo, itunes, Barnes and Noble to name a few for all kinds of ereaders. If you don’t have an e-reader, don’t despair! It is also available in PDF format from Smashwords and my pattern shop or just click the button with your preferred terms below. Easy. 🙂 Please note, if you choose to go to Amazon, the book is 0.99 cents as I cannot set the price to free there, but due to their price matching policy, it should be free there anyway.
So there you go. Pass it on to friends who are always telling you how they wish they could crochet. I am sure with a little time and practice, you’ll have a new crocheting buddy in no time. There have been some great reviews posted about it like this one
on July 7, 2015I’m a knitter who’s tried to pick up crochet a number of times but I’ve always gotten frustrated with the instructions (across a wide range of books). Usually the photos weren’t clear enough at a critical point or the steps were made to seem overly complicated. This guide explained the steps is a simple, straightforward way with pictures of every step. And the digital format let me zoom the photos if needed or easily click the links to watch the videos. After just a short time I now have a completed granny square! Instructions included details on finishing and joining colors too. Couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you so much for this great tutorial! I can’t wait to crochet my first afghan!
The awesome cover is thanks to the brilliant Michelle Lorimer. If you are after some website prettifying or branding help, she’s your girl 🙂
