How to hold a crochet hook and yarn

Hi everyone,

The real struggle for begginer chrocheter is to hold yarn and hook consistantly and feel comfort with it.

I remember the few weeks learning chrochet for the first time, even making a constant chain was really a hard work. Lots of crafters say that there is no rule that work for everyone, especially when we came into the tutorial how we should hold yarn and hook correctly. Some tips may work for one but could be hard  to follow by others. However, I think it is important to see how other crafters do it, because it may give you ideas wich techniques that suit you very well.

One thing that beginner chrocheters should realize is that chaining is HARD, and I believe that almost all advanced chrocheters had been there too!.  So, all you need to do is just be patient and keep practicing. I will share how I usually do it, later you will notice that what I am doing is the most common technique on holding the yarn and hook.

Make Your Home a Dream! 

First of all, let’s pay attention on the part of the crochet hook below;
 


What I am usually doing is:
   Right hand (hold the hook)
- I have my thumb and index finger facing face to face each other on the grip
- Middle finger on the shaft
- Then set two other fingers free

    Left hand (hold the yarn)
- I set the thumb meets the middle finger to tightly hold the stiches
- The index finger would be functioning as the yarn winder, I usually have at least 2 coils of yarn there.

As you get more practise you will notice that the index finger plays an important role on keeping the tension while you make stitches .
If you feel not comfortable in the first week practising crocheting, don’t worry!  All crafters experience it, and it shall to pass. I promise  it will get easier by the time you do it and maybe you’re gonna love doing it  just like me.
Check my 1 minute video, to give you an idea on how to hold the hook and the yarn. So start chaining!
;) ~enjoy!
