Learning to Crochet

Overwhelmed with Info?

Knowing where to start and wanting to know everything can feel overwhelming!
In the words of Maria Von Trapp – start at the very beginning!
Cosy Rosie offers lots of support as you begin the exciting journey to learn how to crochet from 1-2-1 tutorials, YouTube videos and crochet patterns designed with beginners in mind.

The Right Tools for the Job?

Hook, Yarn & Needle

You may already have a yarn stash to die for or a hook someone has kindly gifted! To begin crocheting, there aren’t many tools you need – a crochet hook, some yarn, a pair of scissors (embroidery are best) and a darning needle. That’s it! Just use what you have or you can click here to see all the products I recommend for beginners.

Getting Started

Practice, Practice, Practice

Tools at the ready? Lets go…..

Scroll down this page to find the absolute basics you’ll need to know to get hooking and get practising.
Remember, you wont be perfect on your 1st attempt, or your 2nd. But you’ll get better each time! 

Together is better!
