Don’t Let Learning to Knit or Crochet Intimidate You – Everything is Easy Once You Know How

It can be intimidating to decide you want to try and learn a new hobby or craft. The beautiful realization I have come to is that even the most complex tasks become second nature once you learn the steps to complete them. This is very true in the realm of knitting and crocheting.

No one starts out a master. We all have to crawl before we can walk or run.

It is in our human nature to be slightly nervous to try something we have never done before. This sense of trepidation is because we know we most likely won’t be wonderful at it immediately. No one enjoys feeling like they don’t know what they are doing but if you never try anything new there is zero chance of success or growth.

The old adage “you never know until you try” rings very true.

Some of our most amazing submissions are from those who started out with a lack of confidence that they could do it. They moved ahead anyway and tried. I am very happy today that many have surprised even themselves with what they found they were capable of creating.

I have redesigned my new website to be very user friendly. It encompasses a little something for everyone from beginner to expert with step by step, loop by loop, stitch by stitch, easy to follow instructions that leave you with a finished beautiful creation you can be proud of.

Patterns, video-based instruction that you can replay and rewind as many times as you need to, podcasts, and a real “tight-knit” community right here online. I have pulled together all the guidance and support you need to take up crocheting and or knitting easily and become a successful crafter.

Not sure where to start?
Here we have a great beginning project to build confidence and come away with a beautiful piece you can wear right now. This video shows you step by step how to make a charming crochet crystal chain necklace for beginners. Take a look!

I host a livestreaming podcast weekdays on my YouTube Channel called Create Share Inspire Podcast. You can join the audience and even ask me questions LIVE! I often do a show and tell, or quick demo and I always interact with the live audience. It is a lot of fun!

Want more interaction? I am happy to invite you to join our private group Create. Share. Inspire on Facebook where you can interact with me as well as many other members who have a love of knitting and crochet just like you! It is a wonderful and safe place to share your photos of finished projects in my knitting or crochet patterns or yarns, and to see what others are making, too.

NEW! We have added a new section called Share Your Project. All you must do is click, add your info, any background story including who you made it for, why, how you will wear it, anything you want to share about the garment or your experience, and then simply click submit!

Thanks for stopping by my site! I cannot wait to see what you create.
Xoxo,
Kristin
