OK, I tried posting one of my own videos, but it didn't work. I found the video I posted yesterday and felt it was the simplest. She starts out showing how to chain stitch. Then when she goes the other way, she is displaying the single crochet. I have pictures that show step by step, and I will post those as well. I just wanted to post something and watching someone crochet is the best way!
If you would like to schedule a lunch time with me at the East Branch library, we can do that. I think that might be the simplest way to have hands on teaching. Bring your favorite yarn (nothing too fancy for first timers) and a basic crochet hook (I use an H-8). Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can schedule an hour and you'll be able to do the basics.
