Not only can you make beautiful pieces of art and work on it virtually anywhere, crocheting also provides stress relief and is a great way to pass time without wasting it.

  • Create consistency with a gauge swatch

  • Stitch a double, a triple, a double triple, and a half double crochet
  • Increase and decrease stitches
  • Crochet in circles
  • Work with different colors
  • Stitch texture and advanced patterns
  • Create an Afghan stitch
