Learn to Crochet 1- US Terminology - The Basics
This Crochet eLearning course is created by Ali Campbell of Get Hooked on Crochet & Ali Campbell Designs.
After the success of Ali's Crochet eLearning Course in the UK - there are currently Courses 1 The Basics, 2 The Step & Course 3 The Finishing Touches + Course 1 for Left Handers, Ali has decided to translate these courses into US crochet terms starting with The Basics!
Using US Terms in this eLearning Course you will be taking 3 Crochet lessons including: How to hold the yarn correctly / making a foundation chain & the basic stitches of Single Crochet & Double Crochet, so all that you will need to get started on this wonderful craft that will keep you busy for hours!
I would recommend that you get a ball of BULKY WEIGHT YARN, a "K" or 6.5mm Hook and some stitch markers.
If you want me to send you a starter pack of a ball of Acrylic Bulky a K / 6.5mm hook & a packet of 10 stitch markers, then send $25.00 via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org with "crochet starter pack" and your address & I will send these to you by Airmail. Please allow 7 to 10 days for delivery.
You will also learn how to read patterns as the lessons progress & learn how to read symbols charts too, with lots of Top Tips & Tricks of the Trade included.
The video tutorials for Single & Double Crochet are clear and easy to follow and will help you to get a good visual idea as to how you should be crocheting!
Unlike You Tube video's you get the written word, detailed photo's & video tutorials with this eLearning course, so you will learn to crochet in no time at all.
This course is not time bound. You can work at YOUR pace and revisit as often as you like, when you have the time to do so & at ANY time of the day.
PLUS - you can upload photo's & send me questions via the comments section on each lesson - I will always answer any problems you may have & I will be thrilled to look at photo's of your work too!
Never get bored again with this ECO friendly hobby that will have you hooked in no time. Warning - Crochet Can be Addictive
PLEASE NOTE - IF YOU ARE USING FIREFOX AS YOUR BROWSER THE VIDEOS MAY TAKE A WHILE TO LOAD. PLEASE CHANGE TO CHROME, INTERNET EXPLORER OR ANOTHER ISP FOR FASTER VIEWING - THANK YOU.
I have also written a book called "Crochet For Beginners who want to Improve" which is now available for sale on Amazon (currently available in UK crochet terminology only - US version coming soon)
Course 2 - The Next Step - is in translation & Course 3 - The Finishing Touches - is coming soon!
** What my pupils say!**
As somebody in full time employment and mother to a 2 year old, I don't have the time or opportunity to attend crochet groups or classes. At the start I tried to teach myself from YouTube videos but didn't have anyone that I could ask questions or show my work to. So when I saw Ali advertising her e-course I signed up straight away and have enjoyed it so much that I have already enrolled on Course 2!
The information is clear and easy to follow and the videos are an added bonus, add this to the fact that Ali is always prompt in replying to questions or posts, and you have an amazing course. I would definitely recommend it to others!
After a few failed attempts to teach myself how to crochet from a book I saw a re tweet on Twitter from someone offering a course where you could learn from the comfort of your own home. I was getting quite frustrated because it was something I really wanted to learn but just couldn't get the hang of on my own. I signed up and let it sit on my computer for a couple of weeks through fear of yet another failed attempt. Then I treated myself to a decent crochet hook, picked up some yarn from my knitting stash, locked the husband out of the room and settled down in front of my laptop with my determined head on.
After only a short while I was crocheting! I could make a foundation chain and I could do a line of double crochet! Ali Campbell is amazing in my eyes. Her videos are clear, her instructions are concise and you can pick it up and put it down when ever you want to.
There is no time limit to this course. By that evening I had managed to do something that I had wanted to do for such a long time, I had made a granny square! It was all down to Ali and her course giving me the start I really needed. When I found myself doing a treble crochet I almost had tears in my eyes. The relief that I could do it after all the frustration before was amazing.
Ali taught me how to crochet and now there's no stopping me, my first granny blanket is taking shape and it looks fantastic. Each time I pick it up and start to crochet, I think of when I signed up to Ali's course and how it was a good decision to do so.
Well done Ali. This is certainly going to work well for me. Must tell my friends because I know they will love it too. So easy to follow and no rush.... perfect!
I loved Course 1. I tried crochet before and never did get it. Been through Course 1 twice and am progressing well
