HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CROCHET THAT?
How long it takes to crochet something varies depending on your skill & how fast you crochet. But that isn’t a helpful answer is it?
Well, I’ve developed a yarn calculator to help you get the answer to this question.
It will help you calculate exactly how much time you’ll spend crocheting a project.
All you need to know is how much yarn you will use on the project in either meters, yards or skeins. Then crochet your test square & time it.

STITCHES YOU WILL NEED:
FOUNDATION SINGLE CROCHET (FSC):
Step 1: Ch 2 st.
Step 2: Insert hook into 2nd ch from hook, pull up a loop. Yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook.
Step 3: Insert hook into prev “chain” you made (It should look like you go through a resemblance of a “normal” st, with 2 strands of yarn), pull up a loop, yo and pull through first loop (making “chain”). Yo and pull through both loops on hook. Repeat step 3 until you’ve made enough stitches.
*2nd ch in step 1 makes 1 st, step 2 makes 1 st & every time step 3 is repeated you make 1 st.
FRONT POST DOUBLE CROCHET STITCH (FPdc):
Yo, insert your hook from front to back between the prev st & the st you’re working, & bring it to the front again between the st you’re working & the next st, yo & pull up a loop, you have 3 loops on the hook, yo & pull through 2 of the 3 loops, yo and pull through the 2 last loops.
BACK POST DOUBLE CROCHET STITCH (BPdc):
Yo, insert your hook from back to front between the prev st & the st you’re working, & bring it to the back again between the st you’re working & the next st, yo & pull up a loop, you have 3 loops on the hook, yo & pull through 2 of the 3 loops, yo and pull through the 2 last loops.
Cable crossing to the left or in front (cableL):
Sk 2 st, FPdc 1 in 3rd st, FPdc 1 in 4th st, go back, make the next 2 st in front of the 2 FPdc you just made: FPdc 1 in 1st sk st, FPdc 1 in 2nd sk st.
Cable crossing to the right or behind (cableR):
Sk 2 st, FPdc1 in 3rd st, FPdc in 4th st, go back, make the next 2 st behind the 2 FPdc you just made: FPdc 1 in 1st sk st, FPdc 1 in 2nd sk st.
