As I had previously mentioned, most of my project ideas and inspirations come from watching YouTube crochet tutorials. I mean hours and hours of tutorials. Some have been very easy to follow and others have been a little more “pause and rewind” type of situations.
So what I have decided to do is choose a project that I would like to make and find the best YouTube tutorial for that project. I don’t want to just do a review of the tutorial – I certainly don’t want to say it’s “good” or “bad”. The designers, professional, and amateur yarn artists that are making these videos put a LOT of work and love into them and they all deserve credit for that. It is certainly not easy to craft or create something and put it out there for the whole world to judge.
What I would like to do is not “judge” the tutorial video but rather share my notes from my experience with the tutorial. My own Project Notes that include:
- Experience Level – new to crochet, beginner, intermediate, and advanced
- Yarn & Hook Sizes I used
- How Much Yarn I used
- How Long did it take me to make it
- And miscellaneous notes or modifications that I made
I will never post a review that is negative or bad. That doesn’t mean that I don’t see some videos that are not very helpful. It simply means that if I’m not using the tutorial for my project it just won’t be reviewed at all.
I am in no way making any claim or taking credit for any of the designs that I make – these are from video tutorials that are posted on YouTube. I will include all of the credit and information from the YouTube user, including links, website, or social media contact information. If the YouTube poster is infringing on any other person’s designs, patterns etc it is being done without my knowledge.
I hope you enjoy this series. I will post new blogs for every project I finish.
