One-Handed Crochet – Granny Square Tutorial

I’ve just uploaded my fourth video to YouTube! This one covers how to crochet one-handed showing beginners how to crochet a granny square, which in my opinion is the easiest pattern to crack as a beginner! See below the video, and let me know if you have any questions or difficulties.

This tutorial aimed to help how help those with an upper body disability master crochet one-handed, demonstrating the technique with a limited movement of the crochet hook РI found learning quite tough as two-handed tutorials move and twist the hook considerably to get the motion.

Hopefully, this video will help other amputees or one-handed crafters get the hang of using the left hand as the dominant ‘worker’.

In the video I do use a strap to hold the hook to my arm however, anything that holds the hook still, or if its easier, holding the hook against your knee (how I started off) or on the side of a surface should work ok- this will be trial and error until you find something that suits you.

Yarn: Stylecraft Special DK – Turquoise
Needles: 4mm Fusion Rubber Grip Hooks
