Learn Crochet Stitches at The Knitting Wool Store-

The popularity of crochet has increased enormously in the last decade or so and there have been great improvements in the quality and variety of yarns available for enthusiasts of this craft.In addition  many more interesting and innovative patterns are now being produced so there is no better time to learn this fascinating and rewarding hobby.

Here you will be able to learn all of the basic crochet stitches plus a few of the fancier more complicated ones. However there are some wonderful crochet books on the market which will help  you which to expand your range and learn some of the hundreds of gorgeous crochet stitches as well as some super patterns.

Basic patterns are worked over any number of stitches but repeating patterns will require a certain number as stated on each stitch pattern page.

For example; "multiple of 3 sts +2" means any number that divides by 3, with 2 more added such as 9 + 2 = 11 or 30 + 2 = 32.  Extra stitches are sometimes required for the foundation chain, e.g. "multiple of 3 + 2 (add 2 for the foundation ch)" means begin with a foundation chain that divides by 3, add 2, then add 2 more, e.g. 30+2+2 = 34.
