I’ve been teaching crochet at home and at a craft store for quite a while now.
What I love in teaching crochet is that my students can be anyone and I get to know so many different people! My youngest students are 7 years-old, and the oldest is 84 years-old!! I have both male and female students, and they came from varieties places on the earth!! It’s so fun to get to know new people 🙂
Many of them, who come to my place are those who never crocheted before but always wanted to give it a try. So, I teach from the very basic, starting from how to hold tools, make basic stitches, read patterns and symbols (sometimes both in English and Japanese)…
The very first stitch we’ll have to master is “chain stitch” and kids really have fun making a long chain!!
Girls in 3rd-4th grades can make their own hair accessories with this crafting. We’ve made scrunchy and hair bows. I love it 🙂
One new grand-mom has recently finished making her first crochet work for her new-born grand-son!! I was so happy to spend pleasant time with her 🙂
The most popular projects so far is this flower mat.
Now, 3 of my students are working one the same flower mat project, (and there are so many who want to try later) and I can’t wait to see the finished work! 😀
Maybe it’s your turn to try crocheting? If you want to join us, please let me know 🙂
Summer is almost over and the yarn season is coming…!! 😀
