YouTube has an absolute wealth of amazing crochet videos. But it also has it’s fair share of blurry, unclear or confusing ones.
So I thought I would share with you my favorite crochet YouTube Channels.
To help you find just what you are looking for.
YouTube & Me!
YouTube and I have a funny old relationship. I do have my own YouTube channel.
I use it to help explain some of my patterns or stitch instructions.
It currently has a small handful of videos on it.
Whilst I enjoy making things for YouTube, I would always rather be writing than chatting to a camera. So this medium gets rather pushed to one side when it comes to my online crochet endeavours.
However, my first forays into crochet were via YouTube. I still check them out from time to time, and remain a big fan of how well some of the presenters are able to help their audiences to get to grips with wonderful and varied patterns.
My Favorite Crochet YouTube Channels
The instructors are easy to understand.
The videos are largely crisp and give you a good view of how each stitch is made.
I also prefer those who are able to give this all across with a laid back manner and friendly feel.
The more you feel you can relate to the presenter, the easier it is to enjoy them and follow along.
HappyBerry Crochet YouTube Channel Review
HappyBerry Crochet has some really lovely tutorials.
HappyBerry’s crocheter, Laura, has a great manner that makes you feel like you are chatting with a friend, rather than being instructed by an absent video presenter.
She gives great clear advice, and her videos are very crisp and well set with a consistent background in each of them.
You can really see what she is doing with her yarn and focus in on those fine details.
The crochet patterns on this channel are given in US terms, despite the English accent. Much like my own! But she does let you know when the stitches differ if you are used to working in UK terms.
HappyBerry Crochet gives a nice range of stitch tutorials, decorative patterns, blocks and accessories.
B.hooked Crochet Channel Review
B.hooked Crochet is a quality and consistent channel. Presenter Brittany is obviously as keen to teach clearly as she is to share her love of crochet.
I first came across B.hooked through her blog and not through the YouTube channel, and you can find all of her patterns written online as well as through her videos.
Brittany has quite a traditional style, but uses some lovely bright, modern colors and color combinations.
Her videos are also left-hander friendly, with a left-handed version of practically every pattern up there.
She obviously takes a lot of time to make her videos look professional. They are rarely blurred and her manner of speaking is slow, clear and conscious of the audience.
Sharon Ojala Crochet YouTube Channel Review
I am a huge fan of Sharon’s videos. Her crochet mouse was the first toy I ever made when I began my crochet journey.
Although my efforts weren’t perfect, for a first attempt I was delighted.
She is very clear in her instructions and even a complete beginner like I was will do well with them.
She gives links to written pattern for pattern details, so you can choose to use these instead if you prefer or flick back and forth for clarification.
Her toys are diverse and yet have a style that is distinctively hers.
This channel is given in US terms.
She focusses on a wide range of crochet toy tutorials.
Bella Coco Crochet YouTube Channel Review
Bella Coco’s crochet YouTube channel is well
She’s speaks clearly and gives nice little instructional tips as she goes.
There are numerous stitch tutorials on the Bella Cocos channel, all of which are given in plain, easy to understand form.
The crochet patterns on this channel are given in UK terms, so if you are used to working in US terms pay attention to her stitch descriptions to make sure you translate them correctly.
Bella Coco has lots of block patterns, stitches and appliqué tutorials. You will also find other crafty tutorials and tips on the Bella Coco channel too, all very clearly explained and nicely illustrated.
WoolyWondersCrochet YouTube Channel Review
WoolyWondersCrochet is a wonderful channel for traditional inclined crocheters.
She speaks slowly and clearly, and gives well focussed illustrations of how to perform each technique as well as showing an overview of the stitches involved.
There are plenty of patterns on here that would be well suited to complete beginners.
Her written patterns are also available for sale on Etsy if you prefer written versions.
You will find a wealth of baby clothes and booties on this lovely crochet channel, made in a timeless traditional style.
Hopeful Honey Crochet YouTube Channel Review
Hopeful Honey has some very clear crochet videos.
Her hook and yarn focus is nice and clear, and her descriptions are clearly given and executed.
The channel is exclusively stitch guides, giving a series of tutorials for learning how to crochet a wide range of different crochet stitches.
It’s suited to those fairly new to crochet, although she does leave out a few little details that complete beginners would find useful in her later videos. Starting several videos from an existing chain, which a complete beginner will have to find instructions for creating in another video.
