I've been experimenting with crochet and having a heck of a time with following the instructions. They aren't difficult, but I'm just stubborn and want to figure it all out on my own. I can do the first round with no problem. In the 2nd round, I get lost in the pattern and give up, ripping it all out. A friend of mine pointed me to Sew Mama Sew's post on the various types of learning styles. My crochet experience just made sense! I am a Tactile-Kinesthetic learner, meaning I like to jump in and experiment. My weak spot is that I don't fully understand the instructions before I just dive in.
Will this work for crochet? Not sure, but I'm going to keep on trying :)
