A tip that is kind of helpful, test out different ways to hold your yarn as I couldn’t figure out why I struggled to keep it tight until I held it differently so each couple of rows change the way you hold it to find out which works best for you! Best of luck and don’t give up! :slight_smile:

I am a self-taught left-hand crocheter, Bella Coco videos on YouTube are what helped me learn. In the beginning I did easy things like face scrubbers and coasters to help me get the hang of it. Also small amigurumis.

I try mike crawsd but I stop n try over n over one time I thew my hook cat got it :joy: needless say my therapist think I’m on the right track but think if I could find some one walk me thu it all till I get it could be worth me asking or gain the help. I hold hook oddly but the step they says warp yarn over I have adhd I try ho fast not think there been time I for get that step I end up doing it the other way they was told wrong :expressionless: it’s all confusing others teach different then others as I learn different then others I try ask in church see if anyone dose this no one want work with me my brother pass last week so now I’m hiding in my home not step out hubby said ho ahead order books my new question is do they sale books on Amazon they offer step by step instructions thu videos or pictures tips etc before I buy more stuff for this on Amazon?

Have you tried an easy free pattern on here.
If you press the stitch a short easy video comes up.
Are there any stitches you can remember?

Have you found the free patterns
If so use the magnifying glass and put scrubby, dishcloth or coaster.
Choose something simple to start

I did use Bella coco to learn the absolute basics, she is British :sweat_smile: so would have an accent to people from the us etc however try many people and try not to get stuck on one thing too quick, I moved on to some really slow step by step crochet animals so i didnt get bored and give up as i struggle to not get bored and distracted. i think club crochet have some slow videos too :slight_smile:
