Basic crochet guide for beginners
There are different types of needle that vary in color, size and material. Color and material relate more to your personal taste than the practice of crochet itself. You can choose from metal, aluminum, wood, plastic and rubberized cable needles. The size of the needle interferes directly with the final result of the part being produced.
The needles range from 0.5 mm - the thinnest - up to 10 mm - the thickest. To facilitate the understanding, we can say that, in general, fine needle should be used with thin thread and to produce closed stitches. The thick needle, in turn, is used with a thick thread to produce open stitches.
For those who are starting, the most recommended is to use thin needle with thin line or a thick needle with thin line, in this case only until you acquire more firmness to make the points.
Just as there are different types of needle, there are also different types of threads. The most common and used are wool and cotton. You can still choose to use string yarn. This type of thicker line is ideal for producing carpets or other pieces that need to be sturdier.
One tip when choosing which line to buy is to start with the light tones. They make it easier to see the points, something essential for those who are still learning.
Points and abbreviations
Now that you know which type of needle and thread to use, learn the main points of crochet and their abbreviations:
Correntinha - Corr

The Pussycat Dolls

Low Point - Pb
The Low Point is used on parts that need to be firmer, such as carpets, for example. This type of point has the most closed plot. The abbreviation for Low Point is Pb
