This is why I teach crochet for absolute beginners
I used to offer this class as a paid course. But as you can see, I’ve decided to make it absolutely free.
Why? Because I wanted to be able to share this amazing craft with as many people as I could!
Learning how to crochet saved my life and I promise I’m not being dramatic. Before I learned how to crochet I was stuck in a deep depression. I was a single mom living paycheck to paycheck, I was treated like crap at my job, my son was battling chronic asthma, and a traumatic situation that maybe I’ll be comfortable enough to share one day.
Needless to say, I wasn’t in a good place. I knew I needed something to help me decompress or I was going to explode. That’s when I went to Joann Fabrics, found this weird looking hook, and my amazing crochet journey began. I don’t know where I would be now if I didn’t find crochet.
After learning how to crochet, I was hooked from the start. Pun intended 😉
Learning how to crochet improved my mood, reduced my stress, my anxiety, and helped me focus on myself. It also gave me a way to make meaningful handmade gifts for friends and family!
That’s why I decided to make this Learn To Crochet Masterclass absolutely free.
If someone happens to be in a similar situation or suffers from anxiety or depression, then I want nothing more than to give them the same gift I received. The chance to reduce stress, relieve anxiety, and make beautiful handmade gifts for friends and family.
This is why I think you should let me teach you how to crochet
As I told you, there’s a big reason why I enjoy teaching beginners how to crochet. But there are also a few reasons why I think I’m the best person to teach you how to crochet.
- I’ve been constantly learning different aspects of crochet for 5 years
- I’ve been teaching crochet for 4 years
- I’ve taught over 2,000 students already
- I’ve designed many free beginner friendly patterns
And probably the most important: I’m always here to help.
If you have questions, send me an email. If you need support, we have a Facebook group where you can share your struggles and your wins. If you want to improve your crochet after the masterclass is over, I post weekly tips, tutorials, and free patterns over on my YouTube channel.
If you ever come across a problem, you will always have someone to ask. When I was an absolute beginner learning how to crochet, there was no one to ask. I just had lots of questions and frustrations and it took me a long time to figure them out.
I’m here so you don’t have to go through those struggles alone. I’m here to be your support!

Learn To Crochet Masterclass Introduction
Before the Learn To Crochet Masterclass officially started, I received a lot of questions. The video below explains what you can expect to learn from this online crochet class. If you don’t have time to watch the video, I’ve included the full list of FAQs below.
How to Crochet for Absolute Beginners: Masterclass FAQs
Who is this online crochet class for?
The Learn To Crochet Masterclass is for those who are looking to learn how to crochet for absolute beginners. This class starts from the very beginning talking about the supplies you need to start crocheting. It then walks you through what you need to learn first and each step along the way.
This course is also for someone who has tried crochet in the past and it just didn’t work out. This class was made so it DOES work out for you this time. We are going to cover each lesson step by step with both right and left handed crochet video tutorials.
This class is also for you if you decided to pick up this hobby in quarantine and need to start from the beginning and really dive into all of the things that you can do and get started on the right foot.
Can I really learn how to crochet for absolute beginners for FREE?
Yes, the 14 videos that I will be releasing in this course will be free on YouTube and will never be taken down so you will have access anytime you need them.
However, I do have a full Learn To Crochet eBook that you have the option of purchasing. For every video in this course, there is a related page inside the eBook.
There are over 70 pages filled with:
- all detailed lessons
- step by step picture tutorials (both left and right handed)
- reference sheets
- both PDFs for the projects we will be making in this course.
- PLUS you will have access to all of these videos, ad-free, inside the Teachable platform.
That’s a pretty good deal to me!
But that is totally optional and you do not have to purchase the eBook in order to participate in this masterclass.
How long is this online crochet class?
This course is 14 days long and each video is under 20 minutes long so that it’s easy to digest. Within the next 14 days, whether you’re new to crochet or not, you will be completing two physical projects and I’ll teach you how to make hundreds more with just the stitches you will learn in this course.
What if I’m left handed?
Well, lucky for you, I’ve created these crochet video lessons to include both right AND left handed. Not all videos require left handed tutorials so you will still watch them in order. If there’s a video where there’s a tutorial, like all of our basic stitch tutorials, I will leave a link in the description that will send you to the left handed tutorial. So make sure you always check the description if you’re a lefty so you don’t miss out on those tutorials.
What crochet patterns are included in this course?
Together in this course we will be making a washcloth and a scarf. Two super simple patterns, but both of these patterns were designed in a way that will further your skills and will help you become a better crocheter before you start working on the harder patterns.
At the end of this course, I will also share with you a bunch of different beginner friendly patterns that you can start working on the next day.
Do I have to watch all the videos all the way through?
No, of course you don’t have to watch the video all the way through if you don’t want to.
BUT I will say that I put so much work into these videos to help you understand everything that you need to know about crochet. So for your benefit I would absolutely watch the entire video all the way through whenever you can find the time.
I know that practicing isn’t the most fun. It’s not exciting. You just want to start making. I totally get it. I was the same way when I first started out.
But if you jump ahead or you don’t actually try to follow my instruction, it’s not going to work out as easily as it would if you follow each of these videos through the end of each video.
Inside all of my videos I try my best to incorporate all of my best tips and I really like to jam pack these videos with information. So if you’re not watching the full video, you’re going to miss out on a lot of really great tips and practical information that you need to know.
