    Default Learning to crochet

    What's the easiest way to learn? I want to make those adorable little hats with the flowers on them.

    What's the best place in London to get yarn and needles?

    I taught myself using a video. Just pausing it and rewinding it until I got the stitches down. I think the modern version of this might be youtube. I buy a lot of stuff at Walmart. If there's a hard to find colour I might go to Michaels or Lens Mills

    I bought a learn to crochet book a few years ago, not the way to go. I could not figure it out for the life of me.

    YouTube. I don't know if knittinghelp.com has any crochet or not. I use Len's Mills for most of my yarn, etc.

    I can show you!! While you are crocheting, I could be cardmaking or scrapbooking! It's easy, IMO. I usually get my yarns from Walmart, but LensMills is good, too!

    as everybody else said, youtube!! lol. if you google simple crochet patterns too that helps, and there are good sites that do step by step simple instructions, and actually explain patterns so you can read them.

    lens mill, walmart are great, but another option is dollar stores lately! not neccessarily the greatest quality hooks, but they do have some, and when you seem to need a different size for everything you make, $1 is better than $5! dollar stores usually seem to have some yarn or wool now too.
    where does the time go?
