At the beginning of last year, we launched BiCrafty Bootcamp: Beginner Knitting Lessons for Crocheters. Then in the fall, we began the series of lessons for Knitters to Learn How to Crochet. However, fall got busy, and we all paused after seven lessons to get our bearings. But now, BiCrafty Bootcamp is back. We start up again in less than two weeks, and we’ve got your materials list ready so that you can order your supplies now. And it’s not too late to join us if you’re new and want to learn to crochet!!

What Is BiCrafty Bootcamp: Beginner Crochet Lessons for Knitters?
This is a series of weekly lessons that will teach you how to crochet from the ground up. It’s got bonus tips for knitters so that they can use their knitting skills to facilitate becoming bicrafty. However, if you don’t knit or crochet, you can still learn to crochet with these lessons.
BiCrafty Bootcamp offers weekly blog posts that teach you the next lesson in your crochet journey. These posts also include patterns to help you practice. Plus, we do weekly YouTube live lessons to supplement your crochet education and connect with you!
