In the video tutorial below I show you How to Hold the Yarn.
The first demonstration I show you how to hold the yarn the way that I do it when I crochet and the second demonstration is the way that I have seen it being done by others.
You can practice both ways to see what suits you the best.
Holding the yarn will be different for most and whatever is most comfortable to you will be the right way.
It took me some time to figure out what was ‘my way’ so don’t worry if neither of them feel right to start off with; eventually you will find ‘your way’ of how to hold the yarn.
The only way to find out is to just keep on crocheting.
