When we asked about your crafting resolutions earlier this week, I admitted something: I can't really crochet. So my plan for 2017 was to learn how.
When I say I want to learn how to crochet, I don't mean that I want to just learn a few stitches and never think about it again. I mean I want to be a functional crocheter who can read patterns and make nice garments. Ultimately, I'd like to be as skilled at crochet as I am at knitting, but I have a head start of several years, so that might take awhile.
For this series, we're going to alternate learning new skills with projects that use them. That way, you get to see how these stitches and techniques work in the context of a pattern, and you get to practice them over and over. Instead of just repeating the stitches you learn on scrap yarn, you'll end up with finished garments you can actually wear.
