Hey, I'm Andrea Lemire, the education coordinator here at the Lion Brand Yarn Studio. I'm going to show you some really cool techniques for beginning crochet, and hopefully, you'll have as much fun as I have with it. Okay, lets get started.
So there are so many different choices out there for gifts and the cool thing about crochet, they're all going to be really, really fast. An example is using a very, very chunky yarn and a big, fat hook to make a really, really easy and fast scarf. Literally pop in a movie, you have a scarf done at the end of it.
Other great ideas for gifts? Making a hat. It's nice and small and is going to go fast because it's not a very large piece. Amigurumis are great ideas for gifts as well. Amigurumis are those little toys, those stuffed toys you see everywhere and so these can make great ideas if you need something really great for that baby shower you just got invited to next week. That's a great thing to sort of whip as well.
Baby sweaters also don't take a lot of time since they are smaller items for smaller people. And again, the thicker the yarn you use, the faster it's going to go so you can finish an item like this in a shorter amount of time than you think.
So not only is it going to be super fast for you to make this gift, you don't need to tell anyone how fast it was. So they'll be wowed by something they'll think took ages to make.
