A. Hello! I will do my best to get you started crocheting! First of all, you CAN do this fun hobby! I've been doing this since I was 13 years old, and am 51 now....and still crocheting! It's fun, and you can always crochet gifts for your loved ones! I don't know if you've seen my 3 YouTubes about learning to crochet. If you haven't, here they are:

Learn to crochet 1

Learn to crochet 2

Learn to crochet 3

There are SO many sites that have crochet patterns! Here are some of them I use:

Purple Kitty - this page has a lot of free afghan patterns!

FaveCrafts - I just Googled and found this one! I'll have to get back to this site, definitely!

Annie's Attic (They list patterns for you to buy, but if you sign up for their daily e-mail, they send you a new one each day to look at. And if you check their site each day, there is a tab for a free pattern every day. There are different hobby patterns sometimes, but a lot of times it is crochet patterns.)

e-patterns Central (patterns to buy)

I'd be interested to know how you're doing!
Sincerely, Esther

Hello Aunt Esther!
One of my cousins (who is a teacher)taught her students to crochet, and later on told me that she would teach me how to do it. Well today was the day and she showed me but I kind of forgot a couple of steps so I searched on youtube (like she recommended) and I found your video! I was so glad I did, I already watched the 3 videos and I have to say that they were the best! And I will for sure check the sites for patterns that you posted here.
Thank you so much to you and your niece for making them :)
By the way, as soon as I can I will add a link to this site and your youtube channel to my site :D
Have a nice day!
