Finger Crochet is easy. MUCH easier than knitting!
Relax. You can start with the ‘finger crochet’ chain that kids do. Tie a loop in some yarn. Reach through the loop with two fingers and grab the yarn. Pull some of it through the loop (making a new loop). Reach through the new loop and grab the yarn…etc etc etc. All the rest of crochet is just variations on the this act.
A crochet hook replaces you fingers. Which loop you reach through is up to you… the same one over and over? OK. Going through an old loop somewhere else is ok. Chaining off in any direction is ok. Go free form. If you can find a hold to go through, it’s legal. You CAN’T do anything wrong!
