How To Crochet Petal Stitch~
Openwork Stitches are designer’s best friends. If you know how to do the stitch you can use it to make anything from hats to blankets to pants…anything!

How to Crochet
Learning Crochet from a book is more than challenging, it’s nearly impossible in my opinion! Learning how to do certain stitches and patterns from a book after you have mastered the basics is great but the first time you pick up a hook and yarn and have no idea what you are doing…you better be watching someone do it.I’ve posted this video for complete beginners because there is no better way to learn something than to watch someone else do it! I also have a New Crocheter’s Guide post so check that out!
