It has come to my attention that everyone is buying yarn during the quarantine. I found this out when I talked to an eight-year-old girl I know, who said her mom went looking for yarn to make more crocheted Baby Yodas, but she couldn’t find any. Then I Googled “quarantine crochet” and found out that yes, crocheting and knitting have grown in popularity since the beginning of the quarantine/social distancing. So now that everybody has a ton of yarn to work with, I want share some crocheting tips I have.
(All Crochet Baby Yoda images come from Google Images. I haven’t made one yet, though I want to.)
I started crocheting in late 2006 or early 2007, when I was 17 years old. My mom taught me how to chain and create the basic stitches (single crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet), and then I began learning on my own. These tips are not comprehensive, nor should they be used in place of crochet tutorials. Think of them as supplemental advice as you follow crochet tutorials. These tips are meant to encourage you as you begin your crochet journey.
