Crochet 101: How to hold yarn when you crochet
I recently just made a video on how to hold your yarn when you crochet. There are a lot of possible ways to hold your yarn when you crochet. It really depends on how comfortable are you in holding it. You can create your own technique to make yourself comfy in holding the yarn. Some people learn to knit before they have learn to crochet thus the transition is a bit confusing when holding a yarn. But some crocheters who started in knitting have already cope up with that dilemma. In my video, I show my three methods in how to hold yarn when you crochet.
Here are my methods:
1. Slide your yarn alternately on your fingers (dominant hand), starting from over your pinky up to your point finger. Then hold your starting yarn with you middle finger and thumb.
2. With your yarn in front of your palm, slide your yarn under and over your point finger. Then hold your starting yarn with you middle finger and thumb.
3. Slide your yarn over your pinky, under your ring and middle finger and over to the front of your point finger
Then hold your starting yarn with you middle finger and thumb.
These are some of ideas you could try when you hold your yarn when crocheting. It teaches 3 methods that I usually use when I crochet. There are still a lot more different methods you could try in holding your yarn. But in whichever method you could try, always always use the one you are comfortable with and control the tension of the yarn the most. We crocheter wouldn’t want to put stress and pain to our fingers, so consider the one with ease, you can relax and rest. Happy crocheting and stay tune for more of my Crochet lessons for beginners.
