Christmas is in less than two weeks and my boyfriend informed me he’d like me to make him something so, being non-crafty genius I am, I decided to buy hooks, yarn, and a threading needle to make him a beanie. I first tried iheartstitching’s videos on YouTube but I was having a hard time with the double crochet method as I had a hard time seeing where to place the double crochets. I moved on to a different tutorial and found one that utilized only chains and single crochets and I’ve found that much easier. I’m using Boye and Red Heart. Does anyone have any advice? I’m completely new to crocheting. It hasn’t even been 24 hours since I sat down for my first tutorial.
