If you are new to crochet or if you are a die hard crocheter, there is always something new to learn. I am self taught through website tutorials, youtube video’s and just crocheting and trying. For my patterns you need to know several basic techniques. I recommend the tutorials from June Gilbank on Planet June: I have listed some of her tutorials down below.
