Cult of Crochet

crochet has become a bit of an obsession – join me in the madness!

Lefty Requests?

From all the comments on my broomstick bracelet tutorial I can see that there are a lot of left handed crocheters out there struggling in a right handed world :) That’s understandable – we’re told to just reverse the instructions but when you’re learning to crochet generally this extra step of having to flip everything in your head or download the photos, flip and resemble them can be the frustration that makes many of us give up and go back to making simple scarves forever more! I think this is a very sad state of affairs and I’m here to help. If you’re a lefty and struggling with a particular stitch or some nuance of amigurumi then leave a comment and I’ll see what I can do to help. Even if it’s just the simplest of things that you can’t quite get to look like it should please do ask and I’ll start to build up a collection of left handed tutorials. I’m not saying I’ll definitely be able to help but I’m happy to give it go!

    I know some lefties turn their pattern book or computer screen toward a mirror to reverse the images. Works for watching videos or live demonstrations, too.
