What is a good starting place for a lefty?

Chrissy,

Welcome! Smile

I'm a righty, so I hope someone reading this can give you some pointers for lefties! Meanwhile, if you're using the freePatternWizard there's a setting for left-handed people in #7, "I am left-handed." So I hope that helps. Smile

In general, if you want to know, say, finished measurements, you'll want to make a gauge swatch with your chosen hook and fiber. The gauge swatch is unique to you; everyone crochets with different tension, so there's no one size fits all!

I always try to recommend starting with a small project first. There are different trains of thought on this. My feeling is that by starting small, you'll get a taste for whether or not this is something you'll want to do on a larger project. But if you're one of those people who likes to just jump in, feel free! Smile

I'm not sure what other questions you have, so please let me know what your questions are!
