Crocheting really isn’t as difficult as people think. The only problem is, nobody has made a free, multimedia crocheting tutorial, and that’s where I come in,
I want to make Crocheting 101 - a completely FREE website, YouTube series, and downloadable eBook that will have every detail to becoming a master crocheter in the form of text, video, illustration, and pictures, and include projects along the way, so that even the most yarn challenged individuals can learn to crochet!
I also want to turn the tutorial into a physical kit which will include the yarn, hooks, needles, and a physical copy of the book so you can really get started!
How is your how to crochet book going to be any different?
Well other than the whole free part, it’s going to have videos to go along with each chapter to make every section even easier than the last! Not only that, but it’s going to have different projects to go along with the chapters as well, so you have a chance to actually put your new found talents to use and practice with each chapter you finish. And because the book and videos are going to be released online, you have full access to ask any questions that you might have straight to the author himself, me!
But crocheting takes more that just the knowhow, you’ll also need all the materials to get going too. Surprisingly, there are really no good beginner crochet bundles or kits online with all the materials included. So I also want to turn Crocheting 101 into a physical kit you can buy that’ll have a solid version of the book, the yarn, hooks, and needles you’ll need to get started! It’ll also include a few extra projects so you can really get the practice you need to become a pro!
Risks and challenges
Writing a book isn’t cheap or easy, especially if you want to give it away for free, include of quality videos to go along with it, and wrap it all up into a website and kit. Most of the videos, editing and writing I’ll be doing by myself, but I can only do so much! I need help with illustrations, sound, and editing for the videos, as well as with designing the book itself. With your help, not only can we create this book together, but we can make it with amazing production and quality!
Also I can’t get this kit made without financial help. Besides the time and costs into making the book and the cost for the materials inside like the yarn and hooks, I have to include the packaging and shipping. Your contribution will help pay for better production quality of the book and videos as well as the manufacturing of the kits, making it even easier to learn how to crochet. If this is successfully funded this is all I will be working on Crocheting 101 for over three months and will have it done and online by this spring!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
