It has always been a pleasure to learn new tips and tricks in the many decades that I have been crocheting. I have been part of Facebook crochet groups for about 10 years now. That has made it easier to learn new things. Blogs are great for that too. Tips go quickly from country to country and continent to continent.
Here I put together a list of some of the tips I have learned in the recent years. I have longer videos for some of those, links in the video description.
Crochet tips on the video:
