Crochet for Beginners

A comprehensive online course to learn crochet at your  pace.

What if you could learn a new craft which is creative, but also can help you relax?

...and what if you could also learn this in your own time, at your own pace?

Tell me if any of these statements are true for you:

You have tried to learn a new craft, but you find the instructions hard to follow.

You can't find suitable tutorials if you're left-handed.

You need subtitles when watching tutorials but can't find one to suit you.

You can't fit in time to attend in-person lessons, or there's not a class in your local area.

But what if there was a way to learn at your own pace, in a clear and calm way?​

That's why I created this online course: Crochet for Beginners, to help solve all these issues.

After creating my own successful crochet business back in 2012, and teaching many people how to crochet, I have packaged this comprehensive course designed for pure beginners, so you can learn too!

Learn the art of crochet in as little as a few days, or take as long as you need. 

This is not a race - it's all about getting the results you want.

 At your pace.

Imagine if...

You can create a daily dose of calm, while creating something tangible at the same time?

Maybe you feel burned out.

Maybe you feel stressed right now.

Maybe you want something new which doesn't take a lot of time

but creates some much-needed time-out and calm from your busy life.

Enter: Crochet for Beginners.


It's lovely to meet you.

I'm Kate Donohoe, creator of the Crochet for Beginners online course.

I created and founded my own crochet business: Loopy Needles in 2012, and since then, have made and sold thousands of ready-made products, as well as my own designs of patterns and DIY crochet kits. 


I sell these designs online, I sell ready-made items in a popular crafts pop-up shop in my local town (which I also founded), and I also appeared on Hochanda TV to demonstrate and sell my DIY crochet kits in 2015.

Using all my knowledge and crochet skills gained over many years, I have packaged this step-by-step system for learning how to crochet with a mission to help make it as easy as possible for people to learn.

I've also made this slightly different to the usual course offerings you may find: 

This course is accessible for left-handed people, right-handed people and those who also require subtitles.

I'm very excited to share this crochet course with you today, and I look forward to working with you inside the course.

I'm ready. Sign me up!

Got some questions? We have answers!

How is this different from other online courses out there?

Unlike other courses, this has left and right-handed versions, as well as with or without subtitles. Each course, regardless which one you choose is identical in content, but has the elements required to suit you.

How is learning crochet going to give me a sense of calm?

Crochet is proven to have many health and wellbeing benefits, including relieving stress and creating calm. Because of the way crochet stitches are created, it forms a type of meditation which can relax you.

What's good about learning to crochet?

Crochet is currently enjoyed by over 50 million people worldwide and has been around for over 2 centuries. Although there has been a stereotype of crocheting being for ladies, it can be enjoyed by anyone who wants to create fabrics or items with yarn, at any age. (I learned aged 8!)

Yarn craft is also huge right now, with a wide choice of yarn available, from the thinnest crochet cotton to the largest more specialised yarns, made from many different materials from man-made fibres including acrylic, to natural fibres like cotton, alpaca and even bamboo!

Is this course right for me?

This course offers all the information you need and includes easy to follow tutorials with many stitches repeated several times to get into a rhythm and also avoid needing to rewind the lesson as you learn. With the left and right-handed options, as well as subtitles if required, this course has been especially designed to get anyone crocheting, who wants to learn. 

What's the refund policy?

Due to the digital nature of this product, we are not able to offer refunds for this course.

She has taught many people to learn, including some who believed initially that they could never get the stitches right! She has also demonstrated her own kits and other yarn products on live TV: the Hochanda shopping channel, and also designs crochet patterns for many craft companies globally.
