Hello everyone! Welcome to the inaugural post of Calypso Crochet!  This is my blog dedicated to crochet.  I learned to crochet in my late teens and put it down for a long time because I didn't find it very interesting.  Turns out the reason was because I only knew how to make plain rows.  As I got older, I needed a way to unwind (no pun intended, but it really is a good one!). Crochet worked out well for me.

I started out watching YouTube videos because I wasn't confident enough to try to read patterns.  As the people in the videos were reading the patterns, then following along, the patterns started making sense to me!  Now I feel pretty confident in my ability to follow a pattern as well as create some of my own.  My goal with this blog is to do some crochet, create some new patterns, and have a lot of fun with my crocheting friends.  Feel free to chime in, make requests, and give advice.  This is gonna be great!


  1. Hi there!

    I don't know a thing about crochet but I find it fascinating. Such a useful hobby. Looking forward to seeing your work.

  2. Thanks DC! Obviously I need to get back in the swing of checking the comments section in my blog! Thanks for the kind words, and you can see the pattern for your hat in my new post! :)
