Left-handed Crochet

Issue: 36, December 2012

As with right-handed crocheters, the first thing to keep in mind is that everyone crochets a little differently – therefore there is no 'right' way of doing it.

Working left-handed

To crochet left-handed, simply do the opposite to the right-handed holds. Any of the pictures in our guides can be 'flipped' so you can see how to work.

See below for our guide to holding the hook and yarn.
