There's two other reasons I'm starting to do more videos:
1) While I was sick I tried working on things that are behind, but I couldn't make sense of my chicken-scratch notes to turn anything into a written pattern. Listening and watching the video is helping me put all the information together. I think it's a method I'd like to adopt... I have five paper notebooks full of patterns. That's a lot of trees I could save.
2) I've discovered that I actually like making videos, and I'd like to continue making more. Except... I'd love to make them better. At least my camera is taking higher quality video than pictures, but there's still a big problem with it. I hope you all don't mind that I'm using my videos as an opportunity to beg for donations. I am going to be able to afford a better camera, plus I found it available as a package with different lenses, a tripod, and spare batteries. But when I found out that lighting equipment was going to be almost as expensive as the camera package, I lost hope. I'm sure I'll still be able to make good videos without it, but if I can get some help I'll be able to make awesome videos for you.

😉Hmm, seems like I'm still feeling that cold...😉Anyways, please help if you can. And if you can't, then please still enjoy the video.
This tutorial will teach you how to begin the double crochet cross stitch, work in rows, measure for your gauge, and all the way to binding off and weaving in the ends. Follow along to create the scarf I've made, or use my instructions to adjust the multiple for any kind of project. You'll find notes between sections of the video that include materials and stitch instructions to help you stay on track- These are a good place to pause the video if you need. And don't worry: I've tried to keep it as tasteful as possible and save the begging for money until the end. 😥
PS- My scarf is made with Caron Cakes yarn, color Faerie Cake. A size H/8 - 5.00mm hook was used. You could use the instructions in the video to work this stitch in any weight yarn or thread. I'll get that written pattern done eventually, but I hope this helps for now.
