Yes, Let’s Crochet!

I’m here for YOU, no matter your experience

Whether you’re completely new to crochet or just new to the B.hooked Crochet community, you’ve reached the right place! This page contains all the information you will need to start your crochet journey along with me.

I have so much I want to share with you! Let’s start from the top…


Never Crocheted before? Here are the tools you need To Get Started


Crochet hooks. I have tried nearly every crochet hook on the market both expensive and cheap. Time after time, I find myself coming back to the Tulip Etimo Crochet hook set. I use them every single day and highly recommend them.

Darning Needles. These little guys are a very important part of finishing a crochet project. You will use them to weave in the little tails of yarn to hide and lock them into place. I love my Chibi’s and this little set of three will cover various different yarn sizes. Do you need them. Well, yes. They are much more efficient than using your hooks or worse, your fingers.

A Good Pair Of Scissors. Any pair of scissors will do. Smaller frames work best (so you can stuff them in your “crochet stuff” bag) but really, they just need to cut yarn. I personally love my Gingher birdie scissors!


You can always depend on me for an honest recommendation of crochet tools. I have one rule when it comes to recommending products to you:

I will ONLY recommend a product that I have used from brands I know, like and trust. 

Disclosure: Please note that the links above are affiliate links, and at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you decide to purchase your supplies online. Please understand that I have experience with these products and I recommend them because they are optimal for this pattern, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy them online. If you have received valuable information from me at any point, this is one easy way to say thank you for a job well done.

I have hundreds of them! Browse through my collection of free crochet patterns – you can search by difficulty level, season and even project type! Most patterns have a thorough tutorial to walk you through the project step-by-step.

Whether your brand new to crochet or have been doing it for a while, you’ll eventually want to understand these important concepts.

Crocheting in the Round
Anytime you want to crochet a shape starting from the center and working outward, you will use this technique. Although it’s called “crochet in the round”, it’s the foundation of shapes other than circles like the granny square and hexagon. Learn the fundamentals of crochet in the round with my Ultimate Guide to Crochet in the Round.
Magic Ring
This is a technique you’ll use when crocheting “in the round” for projects like hats and stuffed toys. Learn how to crochet the magic ring (aka. magic circle) with my tutorial.
Reading Yarn Labels
This may seem like an easy task but there is a lot we can learn from understanding the information provided to us on the yarn label. Learn the basics of reading yarn labels in my Yarn Label Guide.
Keeping Edges Straight
One of the most difficult things for a beginner is to keep the edges of their work straight and tidy. Believe it or not, this is something you can learn! I teach you how to keep your edges straight in my Ultimate Guide to Straight Edges.
Crochet Diagrams/Charts
Crochet patterns are available in written and diagram form. Many people find diagrams a little intimidating at first but once you learn how to follow along with them, usually prefer to use them over written patterns. Learn the fundamentals of reading and following crochet diagrams with my Quick Start Guide to Crochet Diagrams.
Blocking
Blocking is the best thing you can do to make your project look clean and professional. It’s every crocheters secret to straight edges and even stitches. Review my Ultimate Guide to Blocking to take your crochet to the next level!
