Basic Crochet- a stitch-by-stitch video is a DVD that basically teaches you a class in the privacy of your own home. It is ideal for homeschoolers, families who live in small towns, or just ones who would much rather teach themselves, rather than pay to attend a class. It covers yarn and thread types, needles and the different types, different basic stitches and abbreviations used on patterns. As well as demonstrating the different stitches for you to see, she also goes through 3 different projects so if you did it along with the video you would be able to make a washcloth, a scarf and granny squares. This video also covers changing colors as well.
I found it very simple to follow, personable and a very reasonable way to take a class to learn something with your whole family if you wanted to!
The DVD is available from Teaching Good Things http://teachinggoodthings.com/
For $21.97 for the DVD<p>
Stay tuned for a review on her other class on cake decorating as well! Check out their website for great info on all sorts of homemaking topics like quilting, sewing, and other topics as well as a great selection of e-books that cover topics like “What to do if my daughter hates being in the kitchen?” and other things!
This DVD made me remember how much I enjoyed crocheting and makes me want to get better and make things again. It is so much fun to be able to make things for people! My sons even enjoyed watching this with me and I think I am going to have a class with them and we will make a granny square afghan!
