Is it easier to learn to crochet with thick yarn?
I suggest starting with a plain, thick yarn and larger needles to begin. The reason is, it’s easier to handle larger needles and yarn, plus you’ll be able to see what the stitches look like. That’s one of the most important parts of knitting.
Is it better to crochet tight or loose?
You don’t want your tension to be too loose, yet you don’t want it to be too tight. You want it to be juust right. When you’re crocheting, you want your yarn to glide through your fingers at a consistent rate. You shouldn’t be straining your yarn or letting it hang loose.
Is thick or thin yarn easier for crochet?
