  1. Hi, my name is Sue and I have just taken up my knitting and crocheting again, after my Husband’s long illness before he passed. I am trying to recall how to do some stitches but as I am on a pension, buying books on both subjects is hard and not knowing which books are good for dummies, I have not bought any yet. I would like to renew my memory on all basic stitches – single, double, treble crochet stitches, along with knit, purl and other easy to conquer stitches. My Mother, when she was alive, showed me how to do knit and purl and she had an unusual way to do it so that either side looked like the other. Mine, I knit with the needle through the back of the stitch and purl through the front. But as I said I am looking for instructions on how to knit and crochet, just like a beginner. I hope you can help. Thank you.

    1. Hello Sue, thank you for your comment! We are glad that you are taking up your hobby again. Instructions for the projects we show are always under the links under the pictures. Happy exploring!
