Are you right-handed and trying to teach a left-handed to crochet?
About 12 % of the world’s population is left-handed so it is not surprising that things are designed with right-handed people in mind. This includes the world of crochet.
Almost all crochet patterns, tutorials and instructions are designed for us that are right-handed. Having tried to teach my left-handed niece to crochet, I found that out for myself. I have to admit that I found it really awkward as right-handed person to get my head around the concept of left-handed crocheting.
The first tricky part was to figure out how to teach her to hold the hook and then how to work the yarn.
I found that trying to teach a “mirror” my own techniques, didn’t really works. Frustrated with myself, I took to the internet and stumbled across these easy to follow, step-by-step tutorials which show you the basics for left-handers.
The tutorials cover the tools you need to start crocheting as well as how to use them.
Share these videos with someone left-handed and introduce them to the joys of crocheting.
