YouTube. We are sure you know all about YouTube, and using it for crochet videos. Just keep those in mind for what you may need, because not everyone learns the same way and you may find a video there that will be more helpful to you! A friend, Dee Anna (mentioned below) says to use words like “graphghan”, “corner to corner”, “c2c”, or something specific pertaining to what you need help with!
