The Crafty Tipster will share crochet techniques, tips and general advice that can help both novice and experienced crocheters with their craft.
For now, there are only a few crochet tutorials in this section, but you will quickly find them becoming part of virtually every crochet project you make. The most popular post on all of The Crafty Tipster is our magic circle crochet ring tutorial. You’ll also find and English crochet stitch guide and a great way to make a professional looking finished edge.
Currently, plans do not include a stitch guide for crochet, but if there’s enough interest we might add one at a later date.
Several of the vintage crochet pattern books where I found the old patterns on The Crafty Tipster make use of the English style of crochet. More modern crocheters will easily recognize the stitches but when it comes to the definitions of single, double and treble crochet the number of loops may differ. With that in mind, I’ve included here a guide to those English crochet stitches that were employed for the vintage crochet patterns from the text The Handbook of Wool Knitting and Crochet.
