How to Read Crochet Diagrams
The art of reading a crochet diagram is a method I prefer over reading written words. For myself, my first crochet book when I was 14 had written words but also diagrams for each pattern.
Reading isn’t my strong suit and it’s still not today. Look at my grammar and you can see I am not kidding.
I learned crochet through reading the diagrams as I came to understand what the symbols meant. Using a stitch key, I taught myself pretty quickly.
