WeCrochet Podcast Episode 3: The Real Winner

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.

    Cute podcast challenges! I’d love to see the scrunchies… And the chicken nugget! Also, i think the link to Alison’s fable fur hoodie is broken.
    I was very suspicious of a fun fur – remember the plasticky, staticky trend of faux fur yarns in the early 00’s? I worked at a craft store and we couldn’t -give- the stuff away. But I’ve heard rave reviews of Fable Fur. Looking forward to trying it.

    What languages are the names from? Oso is Spanish, Kuma is Japanese, Mishka is Russian…

      Oh, I see now that the scrunchies are in the header image! Very cute. Good work both of you.
