Have you been noticing that my tutorials and some of the patterns I have been featuring have had a common element… Crochet Diagrams!
Yes… I’m guilty as charged for being sly to attempt to teach you how to use crochet diagrams. For myself, crochet diagrams are one of the biggest resources to helping a crocheter. I know… I know… some of you are ready to lock and load your shot guns because you may disagree with my statement… but before you pull the trigger… at lease let me try to give a different point of view.
Examples of Recent Diagrams I have Done
I am a firm believer that the world of crochet, especially when languages are concerned can be significantly opened up if we train ourselves to read the diagrams to follow along. I took the time to explain this crochet diagram in giving tips on reading them. Watch this video tutorial.
As a believer of the following statement:
When you have desire… you find a way!
You can learn how to read diagrams. I see so many people giving up so easily making the learning process so harder. For those who read crochet patterns… Did you always have that ability or did you work yourself through the process of doing it? Answer seems obvious.
So when the judge asks me, “Mikey, you have been intentionally teaching people to read crochet diagrams… How do you plead?” I will scream GUILTY with the following statement!
The Crochet Crowd is designed to encourage and enhance the skills of crocheters! If some of the crocheters take the lessons and further themselves… I’ve done my personal mission to provide free education and a safe community to explore creativity!
The Mystery Afghan
The entire mystery afghan has been provided in a diagram format? Do you think that was an accident? Hardly! We want you to learn something new and give you the power to do so!
Take this opportunity to further yourself… you have nothing to lose.
