Here are some helpful and handy tips and tricks that will make crocheting easier and keep you more organized.
Crochet Tip 1: When the afghan you’re crocheting becomes too long and heavy, place quilting rings around the end you’ve already finished. It will make it easy to just flip it over when crocheting the next row.
Crochet Tip 2: When someone asks you to make something for them, write it in a notebook. Write their name, when they will need it by, and the item they want crocheted. Also write down where the pattern can be found. When you finish the crocheted item, take a picture of it and keep it in a photo album so when someone asks what you crochet, you can show them.
Crochet Tip 3: Threading a large-eyed needle with the loose strings after finishing a project and weaving the loose strings into the project are easier than using the hook. It just takes minutes to do a whole blanket with multiple thread changes.
Crochet Tip 4: If you are a beginner and frequently lose your place, write the patterns on lined paper, one instruction at a time.
