We’ll be showing you how to teach your children to crochet on their own over a series of five posts.
Each post will include a video. After you go through all 5 lessons they will be able to create a set of dishcloths. Kids are always so proud when they’re able to make their own gifts for family members and friends.
By the way, if your child is really young we recommend teaching them how to Finger Knit. It is simple and there are no needles or hooks required.
You Need Bulky Yarn & A Big Hook
- Yarn – the bulkier the better for little hands.
- Crochet Hook – Again, the bigger the better. Try a J hook or larger.
Learning the Foundation Chain Stitch:
The foundation chain is where all your projects will start.
Kids can keep going with this for quite some time. Make a really long chain and then finger knit this into a thicker material and you will have the makings of a Jump Rope.
Things you can Make with a Crochet Chain:
- Shoe laces
- Jump rope
- Super skinny scarf
How long of a chain did your kids make? (Mine never wanted to stop!)
