The ladies at church have a craft night once a month. I go and work on my crochet project.
I've wanted to teach my girls to crochet but they are not interested. I did teach my Son. He learned the basics just to say he knows how. He gets bored quickly. He's a teenager. He learned to knit off of You Tube.
I did teach a friend the double crochet stitch but when it came to making a pattern she got overly frustrated. She was doing fine, I didn't care how many times I had to show her the same pattern but she kept apologizing and talking to herself in Spanish. I feel that I failed her.
When I make coffee for church I take my crochet project with me to work on. A woman wanted to see what I was working on so I showed her the crocodile stitch shawl I'm making. She wants to learn the basket weave stitch did I know how?
Yes, I do know that one.
Another woman has a DD that wants to learn to crochet. Could I help her DD?
I was hoping it was her older teenage DD but it's the younger one that wants to learn.
Showing a basket weave stitch to someone that knows how to crochet should not be hard.
Helping a young lady to crochet has me It's been awhile since I've been around someone under 10.
How would you teach her ?
