    My grandmother taught me to crochet over 30 years ago. I remember her sitting me down and her hands were flying..LOL no pattern needed for her. I was so excited when I got down the chain and sc…she sent me home to practice…and I had the most swful square the next morning. I was proud of it though. I took it to her the next morning and she ripped it out, telling me to never leave a mistake…and I remember that to this day. Crocheting is one of the many crafts I enjoy.

    To answer the question ‘ How much experience to you have crocheting? ‘….my answer is ALOT. My mother started to teach me when I was 5 yrs old. I remember sitting by her side and doing my first chain stitch row. I was using yellow yarn. Then in the same sitting, she taught me how to turn. I made my first (although lopsided) potholder that day.

    That was 43 yrs ago, and I have been crocheting ever since.

    My Mom is a wonderful crocheter, but she’s not the best teacher lol. but I watched her and watched Her and finally ventured out on my own, now I love it and am trying to teach my granddaughters. that was about 15years ago. I’m still learning but have made many fun things. I still love to watch my Mom crochet and can only hope to be as good as her someday.

    My aunt taught me when I was in High School. That was over 35 yrs ago. I still have my 1st afghan I made. I still dabble a little and I’m teaching my 10yr old granddaughter the basics right now.

    My aunt is 80 and teaching me how to quilt now :-)

    Some of you will find this a funny answer, but I learned to crochet on my honeymoon! We traveled across Canada seeing the sights, and one of the places we stopped were friends of ours. The wife taught me how to crochet, and I spent the rest of the trip seeing the sights and crocheting. It was great fun!

    I tried to crochet when I was 7, but I just couldn’t get it right. I had learnt to knit with my right hand when I was 6! It was only a few years later that one of my sisters who was left-handed, suggested I try crocheting with my left hand, that I eventually mastered the art!
    Since then, I have crocheted a few pullovers as gifts – they were very well-received!

    I love to crochet. I have been crocheting since I was 11 years old when I was taught on the littlest hook ever! (well, maybe not, but to a 11 year old, it sure seamed that way) So, I have been crocheting for 45 years. uggh! All the way from doll clothes to bedspreads.
    I have taught many to crochet and look forward to teaching my granddaughters.

    I watched my Oma crochet, amazed at the rapid movement of her fingers and decided to learn to do it too. So about 40 years ago I found myself a book and carefully followed the instructions and taught myself to crochet. They were the days of the crochet hat so I made lots in different colors, they were also the days of the crochet bikini! I made them for everyone. My aunts, friends and siblings. For my wedding I made shawls for each of my four brides maids so they didn’t have to freeze if the weather turned cold. Then there were the years of clothing for my own children. Now I make shawls, and blankets for babies in need.
    I always love trying new ideas with crochet!

    Love to crochet. Learned about 30 plus years ago how to make barbie clothes, also have made afghans, and love to make doilies and bookmarks from really fine thread. Thanks for the chance to win this book.

    Would like to learn, My MIL tried to teach me but kinda gave up, I guess it is too hard to teach a lefty. I love the thought of turning yarn into something beautiful. It just amazes me.

    I learned to crochet as a child from my mother then stopped for quite a while. I recently took it up again (and knitting too) when a coworker was pregnant and I wanted to make a baby gift- I had to teach myself all over again from a book, and i have not stopped since!
