If you know the basics of crochet, you can complete each one in a couple of hours (the how-to video is embedded later in this post).
If you're a newbie, don't despair -- you can teach yourself the basics via YouTube. We love Vickie Howell's "Get Schooled" quick tutorials, and these Bernat and All Free Crochet videos do a good job of explaining the Magic Loop (a technique used in our patterns).
Watch Vickie Howell of The Knit Show teach you how to crochet and put together both Ruby and Charley on the TKS Insider series, below.
Many thanks to our talented crochet pattern designer, Laura Berry of LilBear.org.
