Crocheting in the Queen City
Come crochet with the Charlotte Crocheters!
Charlotte Crocheters is committed to sharing the art of crochet in the East Charlotte, Matthews, and Indian Trail NC area. This is done with regular meetings that include field trips, instructions, and help with any issues anyone is having with their project.
Everyone is welcome to join in the fun!
We would also love to see what you have crocheted or knitted in the past!
If you are new to crochet, this is the perfect time to learn since there will be yarn and hooks for use at the meetings. Since I love to teach and if you would like to learn to crochet, I would be more than happy to show you how. I believe that crocheting is not hard, it is holding the yarn in one hand and using a hook in the other and then making them work together the difficult part. It is fun to watch different crocheters since everyone has their own way to maneuver this. With that said, if you are willing to be patient and practice, then you too can learn to crochet.
The best way to start out is to use a solid light colored worsted weight yarn and a H sized hook or the larger J hook. The biggest mistake a new crocheter makes is buying a pretty yarn that is variegated (different colors) with dark colors and a small hook. This causes the process to be harder and then they give up. Dont give up, give it at least one more try!
Now that there are all the new yarns available, it is very fun to make something from yarn into a toy, baby clothes, shawl, or afghan. Your only limitation is your imagination.
