Learn How to Crochet Baby Blankets

My oldest daughter once asked me, "How did you learn to crochet baby blankets?" I told her that my grandmother had taught me the basics of crochet, such as how to make a chain, single crochet, double crochet, etc. I also told her that another good way is to read books, especially pattern books, to learn more of the difficult stitches. (This was before the days of internet research!)

These days I would suggest that anyone wanting to learn how to crochet baby blankets, or any other crochet items, should go online to watch videos. The calculate I suggest videos as opposed to just books is that in the videos you can see how to hold the yarn and hook, as well as any other steps needed to make obvious stitches.

I've found YouTube to be a great reserved supply in seeing these videos. You naturally type in "crochet" or "crochet baby blanket" in the crusade bar and you'll find lots of how-to videos.

You can also go to Google and type in the words "crochet videos" or "crochet baby blanket videos" to bring up lots of results.

Of course, there are many separate patterns for baby blankets and afghans. Each pattern will have separate stitches that you'll need to learn, if you don't already know how. Most times the patterns will have instructions for the basic stitches and other more industrialized stitches. If you're new to crocheting, I'd suggest starting out with a very basic pattern. I've found fairly easy patterns to effect are granny squares or ripples.

If your pattern calls for stitches that you're not well-known with and the instructions don't seem clear, do another crusade for videos using that exact stitch in your crusade term. For example, in Google or YouTube you might try searching for "double crochet stitch" or "double crochet stitch video."

Another great way to learn is like I did, by having person experienced show you. If you don't have a grandmother, mother, aunt, etc. Who is skilled at crocheting, try request some of the women you join together with such as co-workers, church groups, friends and other house members. Many churches have a time when the ladies get together and bring in their assorted craft projects. This would be a great resource.

Good luck!
