Left-Handed Crochet Tutorial: Treble Crochet Stitch

Remember when I talked about the treble crochet stitch?  Well, I'm going to talk about it some more--but for the lefties this time.

No, not the Communists.  Just the left-handed people.  I want to make that clear.

Ahem.

Right, okay!  So.  Being left-handed is usually completely normal, and totally something that most left-handed people deal with in their everyday left-handed lives absolutely fine.  Left-handed people can also perform plenty of tasks--starting keys in ignitions, using a camera, zipping up pants, etc.--right-handed.  I know a left-handed knitter who knits right-handed because it's just the simplest way for her to learn new techniques.

But crocheting?

Well, apparently it's best to use your dominant hand for crocheting.  And so for that, you get your own video tutorial on the treble crochet.  Feel special.

Now you, too, can make these crazy tall stitches like the ones in the Flower Tile pattern from Dishcloths!

And maybe you can even do it without messing up your stitch count!  Like I apparently did!  You'll be fine.  You're left-handed.  You people are very creative and competent.

Or so all the left-handed people like my husband keep telling me.  I'd like to see him try this with all his creative talents:

No, really.  I'd love to see that.  I'm surprisingly unsarcastic when it comes to crochet.

Even if my husband couldn't pull this off (probably because he doesn't know how to crochet, period), I'm sure you can and I'm sure you'll have fun doing it now that you know how to work the treble crochet stitch.

Happy hooking!
