    hehehe...looked so professional.
    Can I ask? how long does it take for a person to learn on an average? Wish we had the 'hiding under the chair' emoticons. :facepalm:

    Hi Neetu...thanks again dear.
    It depends on the time and effort we put....
    now Youtube has tutorials for begginers....can pick the basic stitches from that- Use acrylic yarn( yarn used for making caps,sweaters etc )and a 5 mm hook- that would be easier to learn the stitches first.
    Then, search for stitch pattern terminology- google has lots of charts
    Then try to follow simple patterns- lots of free patterns in all catories are available in crochetpatterncentral.com
    Then can move to doilies...using crochet thread and finer hooks
    Then the doilies following pattern diagrams...
    Then own designs....
    Happy crocheting and do share your attempts.
    If in chennai, Raja threads, T.Nagar has a collection of all types of yarns and hooks.
