How long did it take you to get the hang of crocheting?
Here we go
For me it took about two three days
How about you?
Todays question of the day is
uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh idk lol
5 minutes, and I was 5
Your talented then
Not really sorta, that is almost 8 years of crochet experience
Ooo! This was a long time ago, but it took me about a day to get the hang of chains? I was only seven, and had a broken leg. It took.maybe 2-3 days for single crochet, and 4 days to get the hang of the magic ring/circle. Sol in total, 7-8 days
It took about 2 weeks and the only reason I didn’t give up was because I was working with a group
It took me two days to get the hang of it and then to do magic circle it took me a week because I kept giving up. I even had my sister do it for me then I would continue.
I started with the magic ring because I was impatient, then spent three hours that night trying to find a good left handed video then attempting and failing, and the next day my friend told me all the throngs is was doing wrong so it took me about one project to learn what I was supposed to be doing lol
I learned ~12 years ago from my mom but I think it took around 15 minutes to figure out how to chain and sc but then tension took me a lot longer to figure out
I have a comical sort of explanation. I have a real problem with hyperfixation. I have tried so many things. Tatting, lace, crochet, knitting, painting, clay projects, beading, tailoring, sewing, quilting, clothesmaking, pottery, well, you get the idea. Before I picked up crochet, I found a J hook in my mom’s pencil cup. I also found a skein of Red heart yarn in bright red. I asked to learn to crochet. She told me that if I could really learn how to do it, then she would buy me crochet stuff. Knowing my hyperfixation issues, I think she wanted to make sure it wasn’t just a phase before buying a bunch of stuff.
I had the crochet method memorized from studying those pattern sheets, and would practice with a pencil and thread until one day I begged to use the hook and yarn. She let me and I will never forget the look of surprise on her face when I crocheted a square.
Needless to say, buying yarn became a familiar thing, and I went on to make afghans for myself, as gifts, and making crochet chicken potholders, houseshoes, shawls, gloves, etc, and the addiction has just kept growing! I did lose the fixation for about ten years when I moved out of my parents house, but it found me again last year and I picked it right back up!
Just to edit this, I was about 8 when I first picked up the hook. I am 30 now
I made an entire 3 ft by 6 ft blanket thinking all crochet stitches were in the FLO
I did the same thing with a scarf someone asked me what stitch I used I said single crochet and they said are you sure?
Not really sure that was 51yrs ago that my grandmother started teaching me at 5yo. I started really freestyling in the late 70s early 80s and writing patterns in the late 80s after havingy first baby. Then it all went up from there.
