    Hi Hugh

    Purchased first issue of crochet now last week in the hope of finding any snippets about left handed crochet for beginners, needless to say I was a bit disappointed. Is there a chance you will do a few articles in the future with regard to us lefties. The odd left handed pattern would not go amiss either to put into practice new stitches learnt.


    • Hi Margaret –

      Thanks for your comments – I’ll certainly investigate this further and find a designer who is left-handed. It’s a bit of a mystery to me as a right-handed crocheter, but will endeavour to get some features going forward!

      All the best,


    • If you look at my blog thelittleroomofrachell.Com I have a page of tips for fellow lefties and am happy to answer any questions
