p.s. did you know that wrapping the yarn around your finger is like a tensioner on a sewing machine?! I just learned that.

I find crocheting to be much easier, for ME anyway
No Congress, no President has been strong enough to stand up to the foreign-controlled Federal Reserve Bank.
Thomas Jefferson was concise in his early warning to the American nation, "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

patterns are easy depending on 2 things
A) the ability of the person writing the pattern to explain things in an easy, non complicated manner.
wether or not you know what the abbriviations mean.
basic stitches and thier abbriviations:
sl st = slip stitch
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
tr = treble stitch, or triple crochet
here is a pattern stitch that uses a treble stitch.
this is the first pattern stitch i leaned.
if you can make a sampler, or scarf, or something with these partterns, that you are doing good, and can move on to a simple garment pattern.
when you get to more advanced patterns, you will find abbriviations such as these:
blo = back loop only
flo = front loop only
combinations of abbriviations:
dc in ch i sp - double crochet in chain space dc in ch 1 sp
once you master all these techniques, you can make whatever your heart desires.
here is the hat i made that everyone seems to like so much. nubby brim cloche
i changed the pattern just a bit, if you want to make the hat and you want my version just let me kjnow and i'll get it down for you.
hope this helps !
