Do you want to learn the principles of crocheting? Then keep reading... You only need two things to crochet: a ball of yarn or thread and a hook. All stitches are created by wrapping the thread or yarn around the hook. At first, you may find it a bit confusing or difficult to do. However, as you continue to do it, the entire process will be easier for you. Most patterns begin with a series of loops, also called chains or a slip stitch. Nevertheless, you can easily learn how to create a foundation without using a standard chain. Projects are typically worked in rows wherein you have to switch back and forth, with every row over the previous row. You can also stitch in rounds wherein you work around a ring of chains and create a geometric figure, such as a circle, hexagon or square. You can also use a motif or a geometric piece to stitch together and form your crochet project. Knitting according to numerous studies, knitting has had positive therapeutic effects on health, including anxiety and stress. A challenge of psychotropic drugs and the latest technological discoveries in the most "stressed" period of history therefore thinks (and paradoxically) an apparently antiquated activity: knitting. The reason is simple, used from the "back and forth", described by all effects and said by authoritative sources, a real beneficial therapy that saves from stress and increases self-esteem, acting as a prophylaxis for other muscular-skeletal disorders. A phenomenon so current and significant as to be able to bother what happened and large universities that have wished to dedicate several medical-scientific studies to the positive effects of research on human activity. This book covers: - Crochet History - How to Read and Understand Crochet - Crochet Terminology - Tools and Materials - Types of Crocheting - Stiches - How to Crochet for Right Handers - How to Crochet for Left-Handers - And much more! The list of positive effects found is long: reduction of anxiety and stress, stimulation of both cerebral hemispheres and slowing of cognitive decline, improvement of hand dynamics and therefore reduction of the risks of osteoarthritis and other problems such as inflammation of the carpal tunnel, a positive influence on the state of mind that facilitates socialization processes and increases the level of self-esteem. The results of the scholars according to research from the University of British Columbia in Canada, knitting could help those suffering from anorexia and eating disorders. Out of a sample of girls with anorexia nervosa, 74 percent were told that "learning to knit removes disease-related fears and insecurities." Not only. Staying focused on needles and balls of yarn would also help those experiencing states of pain experience less pain. Other data came thanks to a questionnaire proposed by the University of Cardiff in Wales, a sample of 3,545 people who habitually practice this activity (mainly women). In this case, the answers collected were able to prove the benefits of knitting on a social, cognitive (thanks to all aspects of different areas of the brain) and quality of life levels. In fact, those who practice this hobby usually associate it with a feeling of calm and happiness.
