Your New Favourite Hobby

This article was written by Lili Paszka, Year 10

Do you want to learn a new skill? Are you bored and want to adopt a new hobby? Try crocheting! It’s a great hobby to learn as you can create unique gifts and everyone will be impressed. It’s the perfect handmade gift and the possibilities are endless. 

You don’t need any particular skill to master crocheting, you only need a hook and some yarn. You can find great starter kits on Amazon for a cheap price. There are thousands of tutorials for beginners on YouTube that are easy to follow and are guaranteed to leave you satisfied. Starter projects are achievable and don’t take long to finish. For my first project I did a shoulder bag. It wasn't originally meant to be one but I’m happy it ended up as one because I felt really proud. I started doing longer and harder projects over time. 

It might seem very hard at first but once you get used to a pattern or a stitch, it just speeds up the process and the yarn will just flow through your fingers. In my personal experience it’s better to start without a thing in mind and just experiment with stitches and see what you can make out of it. The possibilities are endless. 

Fun things to crochet that you didn’t even know you could crochet:

  • Pin holder 

  • Bouquet

  • Bookmarks

  • Wigs/hats

  • Coasters
