Left Handed Crochet Stitch Overview

Over the years, I’ve had quite a few left handed ladies come to class. And even more who contact me about left handed crochet. I decided I needed to put together some crochet stitch basics to help you guys get going. I trust these simple, left handed crochet instructions do the job…

I’ve included: stitch symbols, both UK & US terminology & step by step stitch drawings illustrating how to make the stitch

I’m hoping to get more done but, as they take a bit of time, it may take a while…  meanwhile, enjoy!

Technical Problems Resolved

This is a short post apologising  for any inconvenience caused by technical issues when purchasing from my online shop.

The error messages when checking out have been resolved.

My stats confirmed quite a few cancellations at checkout. As a tech tragic, I was at a loss as to what the problem might be or how to fix it. Thanks to the lovely Miss V, & the super helpful WordPress Happiness Engineers, the problem was found & corrected.

Thank you everyone, very much appreciated & panic averted.

Christmas Greetings 2020

A huge ‘Thank you’ to everyone who supported me throughout 2020.

2020, what a shocker! My hope is that everyone fared well through lockdowns & isolation. I know this isn’t the case for many & my sincere condolences go to you if you’ve lost family & friends in this pandemic.

2021 is just around the corner & not a moment too soon. It’s going to be Awesome! Nothing else will do after the frightful year we’ve had. Stay well, stay safe & be happy. We have so much to be grateful for.

Wishing you all a Very Merry Christmas & every happiness for the new year… cheers Renate
