I have never really cared for you tube, and have only watched a handful of videos that I enjoyed. But look what I learned to do by watching you tube:
The only crochet stitch I have been able to figure out from my how to books is the chain stictch. Watching someone one else do it on You Tube I learned how to make a granny square using a couple of different stitches. (I guess they are called stitches in crochet). Anyway I have made 4 of these so far and they are all turning out the same :O). I might have a new craft for Christmas we will see!!
