A lady was sharing her knowledge of crochet at a group arts/crafts hour and she taught me. BEST teacher ever! I had tried many times before and couldn't get it.

My older sister taught me to crochet when I was a teenager. She was very patient with me and helped me tremendously.
I taught myself to crochet several years after my grandma taught my sister and me to knit, and after I learned to spin my own yarn. I have since learned several types of weaving, and enjoy learning other fiber arts as an active member of the Society for Creative Anachronism, a not-for-profit international historical research and recreation organization.

My grandma taught me over 40 years ago, she is long gone, but everytime I start a new pattern I think of her.

My mother must have taught me to crochet, although it was so long ago I don't actually remember! Seems like I've always known how to crochet.

My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was 10. We used to go to her lys, Stella's, and knit and crochet with all the other ladies. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Nice! I didn't realize how many covers you've had! I'm currently NOT subscribed, so this would be awesome...just saying...

I learned how to crochet by taking a class at Joann's. I did this because of a trip we took to Arizona from Ohio. We drove and I cannot read for more than few minutes in the car. So I thought i should learn how to crochet. I learned some basic stitches and how to go back and forth and I came home with 8 double crochet scarves in 16 days of vacation, those became Christmas presents fro several people that year. it was great. from there I went back to Joann';s to learn how to crochet in the round and from there it was go, go, go. This was about 7 years ago.

My grandma tried to teach me to crochet when I was a girl, but I was too cool to learn an old lady skill like that! But now, I wanted to know how, so a friend from church taught me how to chain and turn, and I've been teaching myself the rest ever since!

Self taught, with a little help from a coworker. Have been crocheting for a couple of years now.

Addendum! I really want to make your Buenos Aires duster in Urban Edge. Is it important to use cotton yarn? I don't love working with cotton, and wonder if I could substitute wool of a similar gauge.

As a child my great aunt (and namesake) taught me to chain which I didn't remember as an adult. As an adult my dear friend Pam (RIP) taught me some basics and the internet proved to be a gold mine for learning new techniques!

My great grandmother taught me to crochet when I was seven years old. I learned how to knit in Home Economics class in junior high school.

My late mother got me started in the 1970’s, but I progressed beyond her help and interest on my own.

My mom & grandma taught me to crochet... (and knit for that matter) when I was about 7 or 8. I have put it down and picked it up a few times over the years, but I love to create things.

My mother taught me the Granny Square when I was 4yrs old...and I took it from there. I followed that up with a Ripple Afghan. Then I taught myself to read patterns a few years later. Once I could read, I could crochet anything!

My stepmum taught me when I was 9. It's been a rare occasion since that I've not had multiple projects on the go.
