My big sis taught my granny squares when I was 9 (10 :think). I was not good at it, they came out lopsided. I learned basics as part of a sewing class in 8th grade. Then I collected books and taught myself. I  :crocheting all the time and take it everywhere.

My mom and grandma taught me at maybe 8 or 10 years old. I don't remember what I made--probably dishcloths--but remember at 12 making teething bibs for my new baby sister out of thread.

Same with me; Mama and paternal Grandma. I started in 1959- 62 years ago, Holy Moly- you'd think I'd be an expert by now! Tablecloths, doilies and fashion was a big thing in crochet back then. My first project was a potholder. My second was a doily. It wasn't that great, but, my mother loved it.
