You think you’re a visual only person. I’m here to convince you otherwise.
The concept for this topic came early in my preparation for the Master Crochet Patterns segment because I set out to find a solution for those who have convinced themselves that they can only follow a video tutorial. What I’ve found throughout my research and preparation is that it isn’t so much a question of “can” but “will”.
I’m a firm believer in that anyone can learn a topic if they have the right motivation, guidance and support. That’s exactly what we’ll address in this week of the B.hooked Podcast – finding the motivation to step out of your comfort zone followed by some simple guidance and when all else seems to fail, the support system that will get you through it.
Breaking the visual habit is step seven of our Master Crochet Patterns segment. I’ve set out on this long journey (seven weeks) to help you learn to read crochet patterns because I know how finally “getting it” will make you feel. We couldn’t learn everything there is to know about patterns in one episode so I’m breaking it down into seven. Yes, I need that much time to explain it in a way that will finally make sense to you. I’m calling it the Master Crochet Patterns segment and it is a wonderful way to jump start the B.hooked Podcast and supplement the B.hooked Crochet website.
“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. Crochet diagrams are no exception. The more you crochet, the more you will come into contact with them.
Now if you haven’t done so already, click on that play button at the top of the page to listen to me convince you that you CAN break the visual habit. There’s also a few other golden nuggets in there, so if you aren’t necessarily a visual only person, there’s something for you too!
There are no links for this week’s session, just good old fashioned learning. If you’re tuning in first to this episode, I really think you’ll benefit from listening to the other sessions! Here’s a list of the Master Crochet Patterns podcast episodes:
