How to Make a Crochet Video

What seems like a really long time ago I was a jewelry photographer. For some reason until today, none of that experience wanted to apply itself to the part of brain trying to figure out how to record a half decent crochet video.

After recording the SS BLO ribbing video, I knew I had to do better. It was not good. I had been searching online for tips for a while but never found anything. My ribbing video showed me it was much harder than I had ever expected.

I knew I needed a set up so that the camera was facing strait down onto my hands on a tabletop and I needed to watch the video as it was filming. Probably time to go get a tripod, but the thought of going out to buy a tripod during Black Friday weekend was not overly appealing. Plan B. My son has been train obsessed for 6 or so of his 8 years. That has resulted in him owning A LOT of track and several train sets, which happen to include some risers and unusual bridges. This is what I came up with:

While I realize you can see the edge of the bridge in some of the videos, they still came out a ton better than my first one. Maybe one day I’ll finally go out and buy a tripod or software that lets me crop the video so you can’t see the edge, but for now, it’s good enough. Over the next few days I hope to get videos up for most if not all of the special stitches used in the patterns on HookersDontBite.com.
