Which should be mastered first when crocheting?
The first set of stitches you’ll need to learn are a Slip Knot, Chain stitch (ch), and the Single Crochet stitch (sc). There is also turning your yarn as you complete each row.
How do you hold crochet yarn for arthritis?
Trick 1: Use flexible, flattened and square crochet hooks. They are easier to hold than traditional round hooks. Trick 2: Add a foam sheath or wrap a rubber band around the hook handle a few times. It will prevent the hook from slipping from your grip, and you’ll use less force to hold it.
