Learn to Crochet.

There is no wrong way to hold the hook and yarn. There is a right way and that is the one which works the best for you.

I am showing you the way that I do it. Have a look around, see how other people do it and find the one you are most comfortable with.

Holding the Hook


Right handers usually hold the hook in their right hand, either in


a. the Pencil Hold


b. the Knife hold


c. the Chopstick hold

Holding the Yarn


The left hand holds the work and at the same time controls the yarn supply

The left hand index finger manipulates the yarn, while the middle finger holds the work.



The yarn is put over the first three fingers and under the last.  To maintain the slight tension needed it might help to wind the yarn around the little finger.
