#2 Getting Familiar with Pattern Format

How to Read Crochet Patterns – the question we all have at least once.

If teaching people how to read crochet patterns were easy, we would all know how to do it. It’s a difficult topic because we must cross a barrier of concrete and conceptual understanding – the act of taking a concept and turning it into a physical object.

I’ve set out on a very long journey to answer that question because I know you probably struggle with it in some way or another. We couldn’t possibly answer it in one episode so I’m breaking it down into nine. Yes, I need that much time to explain it in a way that will finally make sense to you.

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” – Benjamin Franklin

I know so many of you struggle reading patterns and that can limit your creativity, success and overall enjoyment of crocheting. Patterns are a huge part of what we do and we must learn to be fluent in this language. This is where you need to start, at the beginning.
