Crochet is not only the skill, it is an art also. There are some very skilled people who can crochet the wool closing their eyes or looking at the TV and talking to someone. Anyone can attain this type of mastery with practice and talent. But there are people who are misguided, so they even can not crochet a simplest rope with their eyes wide open. in this article you will find some basic tips which will make learning of crochet easy and fun.

Beginners get frustrated when they try to learn the various stitches. You won't find much information for the stitches that are trade marked for example camel stitch. You will find so many references of this type of stitch under different headings, since it is patented. The best practice is take up any one stitch; understand it, practice it and when you attain a certain speed you can move on to the other stitch. This way you will not only learn quickly but you will learn the crochet methodically.

Now let's talk about the crochet hook. Many people start with the hook. That is they will first select the hook then look for the pattern with that hook. This is not right. Actually if you pick up the hook which is used very rarely then finding the pattern for that hook may take days or months. The best practice is first select a pattern and find out the hook for it. If the pattern is common finding the hook for it won't be a problem.

Choosing the right material for crochet is equally important. If you have not selected the right material for your crochet then your entire project will be screw up. While selecting the material for crochet, consider the weight and thickness of the material, fiber types and your budget. All these things are consider together for example if certain type of fiber is suitable for your project but it is costly and your project require lots of it then you should not select that fiber considering your budget. You may reduce the cost of fiber by visiting wholesaler or 'sales' where you may get the bargaining like if you buy 3 rolls then you will get one roll free. This type of small things makes much difference.
