CROCHET LEARNING #3: How to handle Yarn

Just like Hooks techniques, there are many more ways the yarn can be held to crochet. Again, it is your choice to choose the best and comfortable one.

  • Hold the yarn in your less dominant hand; (If you are right handed person, hold it in your left hand; and vice versa)
  • Holding yarn is very important, because the yarn holding hand is the one who releases the yarn when needed and tighten to complete the stitch.
  • The important thing in crochet is to be comfortable while crocheting; Holding a yarn is the first thing we need to learn, practice and feel comfortable
  • Below pictures will give you some idea about few easy methods; But please visit the video for clear demonstration
