Welcome to my tutorial for the Granny Stitch! A lot of people think of granny squares when they think of granny-patterned crochet, but did you know that you can get the same effect (with more power over shaping) with the Granny Stitch? It's a very easy stitch pattern that works wonderfully for blankets, shawls, and… Continue reading How to do the Granny Stitch (How to Crochet series)
Welcome to my tutorial for the crunchy stitch! We've had a couple of weeks of two-row stitch patterns, so I thought we could go back to basics this week and do a simple two-stitch repeated pattern. To do this stitch, you'll need to know how to do a slip stitch and a half-double crochet, and… Continue reading How to do the Crunchy Stitch!
Hey Friends! I love the star stitch. It's easier than it looks (once you get the hang of what-goes-where). I also DEFINITELY can't explain it better than the tutorial I learned it from, so consider this a bonus tutorial that I had nothing to do with 🙂 The World's Best, Most Clear, Star Stitch Tutorial.… Continue reading PSA: the best star stitch tutorial out there, which is not mine.
Hi Friends! Welcome to my tutorial for The Primrose Stitch. This one is another of those two-row stitches, where the stitches on the upper row complete the stitches on the row under it. As such, you'll want to end your piece on the second row of the two to have an even, complete ending to… Continue reading How to Crochet: The Primrose Stitch

All you really need to know (beyond the basics of chaining, etc.) is… Continue reading The Floret Stitch (How to Crochet)
The bobble stitch is one of my favourite stitches. It uses quite a lot of yarn, but it's fun to do, it looks really neat, and it makes for great texture in things like dishcloths, a good thick surface for things like trivets and pot holders. And did I mention that it looks really neat?… Continue reading How to Bobble Stitch (How to Crochet)
Welcome to my tutorial for the lemonpeel stitch! Since this is my first tutorial beyond the basics of crochet, I thought I'd start with a fairly simple stitch and we could go from here. When we talk about a "crochet stitch" we're almost always talking about a pattern of stitches rather than doing something different… Continue reading The Lemon Peel Stitch (How to Crochet)
Hi Friends! Below is my short video (hereby named "Maddy's Minis") to demonstrate how to make a magic circle. While this video might well be enough to learn how to form the magic circle on its own, it's intended to illustrate this tutorial. Hope it's helpful! If you'd like to see slightly better production… Continue reading Maddy’s Minis: Magic circle video
Hi Friends! Welcome to part 9 of my How to Crochet Series, where we will learn to make the magic circle (also called magic ring, magic loop, probably some other things I haven't heard of yet. I tend to use the terms interchangeably, myself). If you're new here, or you're fuzzy on some of the… Continue reading How to make a Magic Circle (How to Crochet part 9)
Hi Friends! We're not quite up-and-running with the formal(ish) tutorial videos with sound and title cards and things, but I thought maybe roughly one-minute-or-less videos might be helpful to demonstrate some of the concepts I've done written tutorials. With that in mind, here is my super-fast video on slip stitch. This video isn't meant to… Continue reading Mini how-to video on slip stitch
