If you’re interested in learning how to crochet, tag me and I’ll gladly help out and hold some lessons. The only thing you need to get started is a crochet hook and some yarn.
If someone would like to crochet something weekly with me, I’m up for that too.
To start out, you would need a crochet hook of size 3 mm or 3.5 mm, although this may vary depending on the thickness of the yarn you will be using. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy, here is a crochet hook on Amazon for $1.56.
When first learning how to crochet, one yarn is more than enough. You don’t need yarn in every color of the rainbow, but it can be nice with some variety in color and types of yarn later on.
Here are some sites with awesome, free, amigurumi patterns.
