Back To School Giveaway Basket: Learn to Knit and Crochet

A long time ago, when I was pregnant with my middle daughterI got the sudden urge to learn how to crochet. My mom had tried to teach me in high school but I had neither the time nor the interest then.

So once again, I had my mom come and demonstrate the basics. I figured out the chain pretty quick and was onto single stitches. Double crochet was my favorite because it made a larger row. I think my first project was a scarf – one that turned out all crooked and wonky because I hadn’t perfected counting stitches (I didn’t think it was that important).
