Do you know which is my most popular crochet video tutorial ever?

Marly Bird’s YouTube Channel

I launched the Marly Bird YouTube channel way back in 2014! My oldest video is a tutorial about how to make a slip knot and work the chain stitch. In other words, I started off the channel by teaching you crochet basics. Although my knit and crochet videos are popular, my most popular video tutorial is a crochet project.

My Absolute Beginner knit and crochet video tutorials have historically been pretty popular. I show you step by step, basics by basics, exactly how to work on a beginner pattern. This lets you learn to knit or crochet and finish your first project.

Absolute Beginner Crochet Throw

This video for How to Crochet the Absolute Beginner Throw is the most popular. People often want to learn how to crochet blankets when they’re learning how to crochet. After all, they’ve seen many crochet blankets throughout their lifetimes. Moreover, the square or rectangular shape is simple, yet it’s a big project allowing you to practice those new skills.

The Absolute Beginner Throw crochet pattern uses a chunky yarn, which works quickly, even for newbies. You use double crochet stitches to complete most of this project. It’s easy-peasy, and yet it’s a terrific blanket. You can easily gift this to people with pride, especially if you’re looking for a present for a new baby.
