How to crochet - the very beginning!
This little video shows you how to make a slip knot, hold your hook, hold the yarn, make a foundation chain and double crochet.  

Knitting

Mattress Stitch
Mattress stitch is my absolute favourite thing to teach because it is honestly like magic!  It gets me every time how clever it is!  You can use mattress stitch to sew up the edges of any knitting really, but it works best when you have two sections of stocking stitch (like you would on the side seam of a jumper).  
How to knit brioche stitch
Brioche stitch creates a lovely light and airy rib that looks great in any yarn, but particularly, I think, in something nice and chunky as i have done in my brioche stitch wrap. You can make whatever you want using brioche stitch, but it's great texture particularly lends itself to accessories. You could easily knit up a brioche stitch throw, just cast on any even amount of stitches and off you go! It's very simple to knit, but can be a little tricky to work out initially, so have a look at our video how to guide here to get you on your way.

How to wind a skein into a ball
If you are new to knitting or crochet, or just haven't come across yarn in a skein before, you might wonder how on earth you are supposed to knit from it!  The most important thing is don't knit from it as it is!  Even if it is only 10m of yarn, I promise you it will get ridiculously tangled up!  You simply need to wind the skein into a ball yourself either using a swift and winder, or by hand.
