I love youtube tutorials and they will always be my favourite and preferred method of learning a new pattern but slowly, slowly I am learning about how to read different patterns.
I like to be able to watch someone doing the same thing I am attempting so I can see what it looks like as well as the process. Step by step pictures can be useful but for some reason my brain gets in a muddle somewhere between the reading and the looking. I am a simple girl!
When I first started crocheting I tried to read patterns but I always got confused at what I was up to. Any suggestions for overcoming this apart from drawing all over the pattern??
I have made 1 granny square from a diagram…it was SO difficult! a lot of frogging, let me tell you!
So what I have also discovered while learning to crochet is that I learn by watching and doing. How did you learn crochet? What are your preferred pattern types?
