I’m having the hardest time trying to crochet?

by Dorothy on March 5, 2011

I don’t get it at all, I’ve had several people, videos, and instructions on how to do it and none of them work. I really want to be able to so I can make amigurumi things, but is there any way that its super easy? Or can I knit amigurumi things? Is knitting easier?

It’s easier to fix your mistakes in crochet than knitting. I think they are about the same to learn. I had a friend get me started with the basic chain and single crochet – then I picked up a book to learn more. One week later (and lots of "cat toys") now I’m crocheting a pair of (fingerless) gloves for a Victorian event next weekend.

A lot of fabric/craft stores offer classes or can at least point you in the right direction. Don’t give up!
