Can anyone recommend a good book with lots of pictures to learn to crochet?

I just posted a thread on little vides that show the stitches. It will come in handy if you want to learn the stitches.

RE: Want to learn to crochet

I learned using the booklet Learn to Crochet in Just One Day. I just saw it on Amazon, but it was the left hand version. Cannot remember where I got mine, maybe Michaels. Anyway, it helps you with each stitch, helps you make practice swatches.

That said, I really rely on the online videos of the stitches for both knitting and crocheting. They are very helpful. So I think it's good to have a book to guide you and the online sources too.

RE: Want to learn to crochet

I learned how to crochet by watching videos on the internet. All I did is a google search on learning how to crochet and videos or something like that. Fool around with different things to type into the search box. Like crochet and learning.. Stuff like that. You will be surprised at how many hits you get.
There is also a website called. She has great how to videos.
Good Luck

RE: Want to learn to crochet

Do you have a local yarn shop or a Micheal's craft store near you? Both, here, run classes. Or maybe a nursing home or senior center that would have someone older that is confined do to mobility problems, but can still crochet and would love to have someone to teach and become a new friend? There might be restrictions at the nursing homes, but it couldn't hurt to call there (ask for the activities director) or call a local senior center. One of our libraries has someone that teaches knit and crochet at the library, she has brochures available at the library, check there.
