Marly Bird’s Most Popular Crochet Video Tutorial

Do you follow me over on YouTube? I hope that you do. I go live there so that I can teach you things while directly interacting with you. Whenever we have make-alongs, the crochet and knit videos are all there on YouTube. It’s home to the old episodes of the YarnThing Podcast. And, over the years, I’ve done a whole lot of crochet and knit video tutorials for stitches, techniques, and full patterns. Do you have any guess which is my most popular crochet video tutorial ever?

Marly Bird's Most Popular Crochet Tutorial

Marly Bird’s YouTube Channel

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

Marly Bird’s Most Popular Crochet Video Tutorial

So, which one is the most popular crochet video of all time? It’s this one:

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 allows you to learn how to knit or crochet and finish with a project in hand.

Absolute Beginner Crochet Throw

The most popular of all is this video for How to Crochet the Absolute Beginner Throw. 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, and yet it’s a big project that allows you to really practice those new skills.

The Absolute Beginner Throw crochet pattern uses a chunky yarn, so it works up pretty 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.
