There is always something new to learn in crochet, isn’t there?!
Recently I have made many “Shorts” videos in YouTube. You have probably noticed those recently – max one minute long and vertical videos mixed with normal videos on many channels. The format is ideal for individual crochet tips or stitch tutorials. I have so far posted 25 shorts videos on various subjects. The most popular of them has been “How to crochet the bobble stitch“, well over 100K views at the moment.
