It's easy, fun and useful!
I love crocheting because I need only yarn and 1 crochet hook, it's fast to work, it's easy to bring the project around, you handle 1 stitch at the time, and it's no crises if a stitch slips! (You know what happens if you slip a stitch in knitting!)
There are hundreds of tutorials on the net if you'd like to try.
I’ve found this series of videos which shows all the crochet basics you need to know.
So...find some yarn and a crochet hook and just try it!
