Supplies Needed for Left Handed Crochet

The supplies needed are the same for lefthanded crochet. You’ll need 

  • Yarn
  • Crochet hook
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle. 

The Basics of Left Handed Crochet

The first thing is to hold the hook in your left hand, just like a pen or pencil. You’ll want to ensure that your grip is comfortable and that the hook is facing the right way. The hook should be facing up and out, not down and in. 

When you’re ready to start, you’ll want to make a slip knot at the end of your yarn. You’ll need to make a loop and pull it tight to do this. 

The next step is to create a chain, by making a series of loops with your hook. To make a chain stitch, you’ll need to yarn over (YO) with your hook and pull the yarn through the loop on your hook. This will create a chain stitch. 

Keep repeating this process until you have the desired number of chain stitches. Once you’ve mastered the chain stitch, you’re ready to move on to the other crochet stitches.

Different Types of Stitches

Several types of stitches are used in crochet, and they can all be done with your left hand. You’ll find the most common stitch is the single crochet (SC). The other common stitches are the half double crochet (HDC) and the double crochet (DC). The difference between these stitches is the number of loops you make with your hook. 

Learning to crochet with your left hand can be a fun and rewarding experience. With the right supplies, some practice, and a few helpful resources, you’ll be able to master the craft in no time. So what are you waiting for? Get your supplies and get startêd! And remember, if you ever get stuck or need help, don’t hesitate to reach out to the friendly lefthandêd crochet community.
