Free workshop for both right and left-hand crocheters is available. The concept for this workshop is to not only get you started with the absolute basics such as holding your hook and yarn, but also doing some basic need-to-know stitches.
Mikey also covers shopping for hooks.
He is teaching with the ‘knife-method’ in holding his hook. A skill his mother showed him as a kid. It’s known that those who hold the ‘pencil-hold’ style may have greater risks of developing carpal tunnel syndrome in the long term. If you are to learn and haven’t done this before, learn the way he is showing.
