As I stated early, I started learning to crotchet about two days ago. I am teaching myself and I need some guidance. Just starting out what should my main focus be? There are so many things that seem important. Should I be working on tension? and what is gauging?? When should I start trying to make something? Right now, all I am making are little squares of stitches that I am trying to learn. So far I have learned the chain and the single crochet and ever time I think I am going make something it seems way to advanced. I am starting to feel a little overwhelmed and discouraged:(. Does anyone have any advice they can give to a beginner??
