This week Heather is diving into people’s crochet journeys. First Heather and Regan examine Fable Fur, brainstorm ideas for crocheting with faux fur yarn, and throw down in a scrunchie-crocheting contest. Find out who will win.
Next, Heather and Sara talk about important things to consider when choosing the right crochet hook for your project. Deciding the right hook takes some experimenting but understanding the different types of hooks, grips, sizes, and materials can really help.
Then, Heather checks in with crochet beginners, Producer Sarah and Jennifer, as they discuss their crochet triumphs and tragedies while learning how to crochet.
