How to double your crochet speed - really !!!

double free crochet free tip free tutorial how to crochet spiral necklace spiral tube necklace design wire crochet speed wire necklace zebra tube necklace

YES ! I know all of you would have liked to learn how to double the speed you crochet wire in, I know I would !

Last week while crocheting a spiral tube necklace in 2 colors, ash gray and rose in case you were wondering, I realized that I could actuality do 2 rows at once and by that double my crochet speed.

Sounds blurry ? let me try to explain, until now I used to crochet one row in one color and then the second in the other color. But what I realized was that I could crochet both rows at once ! 

Still confused ? I filmed a short free tutorial to teach you how you can implement this free tip too !

This tip would also work if you want a plain one color tube necklace, you only need to use 2 spools of the same color.

The spiral effect is most dominant when you pick 2 very contrasting colors such as dark blue and gold or red and gold etc.

    Yes! I’ve tried with the larger and it works much better. I have to pay more attention to tension…
    I can’t find the explanation you’ve gave for starting with another colour and at the end cut it – I would like understand why.
    Thank you for all the help you give. Today i saw other videos and they are great.

    Hi Méri,
    I do have the same problem with the smallest one. So please try the next size. It is much easier and lets you make a lot of beautiful jewelry. That’s what it is about ;)

  • Yael

    Meri ! when you go back to it, which im sure you will, start with the large ones :) ! much easier …
    and contact me and the YoolaISK group on FB for help .

    Hi!
    Thanks for this But too much for me. As soon as I’ve received your package I tried the little ISK and it was a disaster. I know, I know I must try again and again, but for now my head is full of things some good others not so good. It’s life and it means I’m alive! As soon as I do something right I’ll answer to your review. Only had time to see two videos
    Hope you’ve had good holidays
