How to Crochet: Citrus Twist Tote (Right Handed)

How to Crochet: Citrus Twist Tote (Right Handed)



hi this is Tamara from ugly blog.com and in this video I'm going to be demonstrating how to crochet the citrus twist tote which is a free pattern you'll find on mukla blog comm please go to the link in the description there you will find a link to both right and left handed video tutorials and that page will include links out to the written pattern and all of the supplies you need as well as the other tutorials that I will mention here today for this pattern you'll need a USI 5.5 millimeter hook this one is a clover or more you also need 4 colors or more or less depending on what you want to do a red heart scrubby smoothie now you can see here in my citrus twist tote I went with some beautiful citrusy colors lime white bright orange and lemony but of course you can use whichever colorways you like and I've put together a couple of other options here for you to consider some gorgeous blues and greens for a beachy colorway or maybe a berry smoothie colorway you can really have a lot of fun with this pattern of course in addition you'll need your standard crochet supplies like stitch markers scissors and a yarn needle let's take a look at the finished citrus twist tote alright here I have what remains of the colors of yarn that I used making the original so you can see you don't use a full ball of any of the four colors I began with the green colorway here color a and I started at the bottom of the bag and I used one of my favorite techniques here for making tote bag bottoms where I work back and forth in rows and then stop and work all the way around just changing two rounds working around that rectangle to create a really nice base for my tote bag I'll show you that here in a few minutes but I do also have a tutorial specifically on this technique linked at the link in the description and on the youtube channel after that of course we changed colors and all the odd numbered rows after we make the space of course once you begin the main stitch pattern up here where we're changing colors all the odd numbered rows are made in color B which is our white color right here so that is just really easy after that we're just cycling through our colors green orange yellow green orange yellow green orange yellow green orange and finally yellow for the handles and topper so let's go ahead and get stitching our citrus twist tote all right now row one of the citrus twist tote is made with color a which for me is this lime colorway and a foundation double crochet row of 40 stitches if you're not familiar with the foundation double crochet I do have a separate tutorial linked at the link in the description and on the You Tube channel if you prefer not to use the foundation double crochet you can simply chain and then double crochet back across as long as you end up with 40 double crochet stitches at the end of the first row that's what matters after at that rows two through four are the same you just chain two which does not count as a stitch and then double crochet and each and every stitch across so at the end of row four you should have four rows of forty double crochets each so I will see you when we get to the end of row four alright here I am with four rows of double crochet made now as I mentioned this pattern starts with 40 double crochets in each row obviously I haven't made that many I only have 16 here which is enough to demonstrate the pattern so if you want to change the size of your bag you can add or subtract any multiple of eight to your first row just maintain that through rows two through four before you switch to round five so that you can maintain a multiple of eight when we begin our fancy stitch pattern for the body of the bag so let's go ahead and move on to round five I'm going to go ahead and start with a chain two and then it begins just the same way as all the other rows we're just going to double crochet in each one of those forty or however many stitches you've got on across until we get to the end so I will see you when we get to the end which is the first section of round five alright so as we begin round five here at first it just looks like a row five but after we've worked our way across we're going to turn and double crochets into the sides of the previous four rows we don't want to work back into the side of the row we just made because that's part of our current round we want to come down here to the previous row and work two double crochets right into the side of each row now working into the edge is little bit of a combination of art and science I always say it's a matter of finding where you like the look of the stitches whether you split the stitch or go into that chain to to add your stitches or go around the stitch as a whole is totally personal preference for this pattern in particular especially no right or wrong whatever makes you happy whatever you think looks best whatever makes your hook happy so just make sure you work eight stitches total two in the sides of each row on down the side here until we get back down to our foundation chain or the bottom of our foundation stitches however you got those initial 40 stitches or your multiple of eight so I will work my way right on down the side here I've got one more I'm just gonna double check here I've got the end of my rows there and I've got two four six eight worked right into the side now I'm gonna turn again and here we have like I say that foundation chain or the bottom of our foundation double crochet stitches so there should be another basically 40 stitches here waiting at the bottom for you to work into if you made foundation stitches you should have two loops to work into down here if you crocheted in the back hump of your chain you would have two loops to work into down here if you crocheted under the top two loops you're only going to have one loop to crochet into but regardless you just want to crochet all the way across the bottom of your foundation chain when we get to the other end here of course when we've made our forty or however many stitches across our foundation chain then again we'll just work two stitches into the sides of each of these sides of the rows these this end over here which will bring us right back up here to where we began round five and we can join with a slip stitch to that first double crochet so I'm going to keep crocheting across and you can too and I will see you when we get to the end of round five okay so at the end of round five you worked across the foundation chain up that other side with eight more stitches and you are ready to slip stitch in the top of that first double crochet you made make sure though that you don't end up accidentally crocheting into the side of the round you are currently making so at the end of round five you should have a total of 96 stitches and from here on out we're going to be working in the round round six is very simple we're just going to chain two and work a double crochet in every stitch around and join with a slip stitch when we're done so I will see you at the end of Round six all right so when you get to the end of round six again you should have 96 stitches so at this point you're ready to join with a slip stitch to that very first double crochet you made in the beginning of round six however this is where we're going to change colors to our color B so rather than slip stitching with the color we've been using I'm going to let that end hang try and get a proper hold of this color B here there we are and we're going to yarn over into the slip stitch with this color for my bag I used my white color B for all my odd numbered rows from here on out of course you could use a different color or mix it up I'm going to go ahead and yarn over like I said with the color B kind of pull that tight there and then just let that end hang to be woven in later then to begin round seven I'm going to chain one and I'm going to single crochet in the first stitch so that's that very first one we join two right there and at this point you can take those ends there and or that end of the white and tuck it in I want to leave the end of the green still hanging out where it is so I can pick it up and use it again later I'm just going to run it along the inside of the bag if you prefer you could absolutely cut that off and weave it in every time you do a color change up to you so all right round seven we've got that first single crochet made after that we begin our repeat which starts with the asterik in the written pattern we're going to chain two then we skip the next stitch that's the stitch right here then we single crochet in the next stitch right there like so and then we chain four one two three four and skip five stitches one two three four five so this is the next stitch and we're going to single crochet in the next stitch like so after that our repeat begins again we chain two skip the next stitch single crochet in the stitch after that chain four one two three four and skip five one two three four five single crochet in the stitch after that and of course then again that's our repeat all the way around so let's do it one more time together we chain two skip the next stitch single crochet in the stitch after that chain four one two three four skip five stitches one two three four five and single crochet in the stitch after that so just continue that repeat all the way around and I'll see you when we get to the end of round seven alright so when you come to the end of round seven and if you're looking at the written pattern you'll notice after you skip those five stitches that single crochet is right there so that's where we end that final repeat simply by slip stitching to that very first single crochet made however this is also and we're going to change colors again so rather than pulling through with that white I'm going to let it hang again in the back because I will definitely be picking that up again soon I would not code not cut your color be if you're going to keep using it the way I have but at this point now we're going to yarn over and pull through our colors see which for me was the bright orange let's go ahead and make our slip stitch with a bright orange just sort of hold on your stitches try to keep them from pulling up too much if you find your loops are getting a little too big you can take the time to come back here and just give them a little tug tug down on those ends that'll help tighten up those stitches and of course when you weave weave in this end here or rather pull it back up and weave in that end you'll be able to secure those a little bit more as well so let's go ahead and continue with round eight the first thing we're going to do after we've made our slip stitch there is go ahead and slip stitch into this around or excuse me this chain two section right here so we're just gonna go right in there with a slip stitch then we are going to chain one and single crochet back in that chain two space right there like so then we are going to do three double crochets a chain one and three double crochets in the next stitch chain 4 space so again we're just working in the space here not into the individual chains at all just into the space we're going to skip over the stitches in between so let's make three double crochets one two and oops try that again three you can see I'm going right around that whole chain I'm not trying to go into it and Danny into any individual chains then we chain one and make three double crochets right in that same chain 4 space so one two and three you can see this sort of creates a shell with a chain one right there after that we begin our repeat that will take us around the rest of the bag single crochet in the next chain two space easy enough and then three double crochets chain one three double crochets in the next chain 4 space that's it that's all we have to do for round eight so we're just going to continue working our way around and I will see you when we get to the end of round eight alright so when you come to the end of round eight you'll finish up with three double crochet chain one three double crochet worked in that last chain for space there and then you are ready to slip stitch to that first single crochet you made so of course we are going to change colors again and at this point we're going to be pulling up the white again or your color B so you want to find the end that's not the end end but the end that's still attached to the yarn and yarn over with that to finish this slip stitch so just carefully pull that through again and you're ready for round nine now round nine and round eleven and thirteen and fifteen and seventeen on through until you're about ready for the handles are all going to be the same we're going to start with a chain three one two three and then we're going to treble crochet right into that first stitch so a treble crochet we yarn over twice we go right back into that indicated stitch the top of that single crochet and at this point I would normally yarn over pull through two pull through two and pull through two to finish a treble crochet however I really want to start tacking down the yarns that I'm going to be carrying along the inside of my bag again if you're cutting the yarn or using a solid color for the whole bag you may not need to do this but I want to keep my yarns carried along the inside I don't like weaving it ends so I'm going to yarn over twice insert my hook just as I did before but at this point I want to take the connected ends so not the tail ends here that are gonna get woven in later but the ends I want to crochet with later the ends that are still attached to the yarn of the colors I'm not using so in this case that would be the orange and the green and I just want to make sure that those get enclosed in this next stitch and I can do that just by laying them right over my hook like this before I yarn over and pull through my loop there we are so just lay those right over my hook right and back of my work and when I pull through that loop I'll go ahead and finish my treble crochet as normal but if we look at the back you can see those have been pulled up and now they're sort of nicely secured back here so from here on out every time I change colors that first stitch I make I want to go ahead and tack down the unused colors and back so they're carried along right where I need them because of the slip stitch that we're going to be making in our even numbered rows which I'll show you again here in a minute like when we began our orange row and we slip stitched into that first chain to space our project we'll keep leaning so don't worry about the fact that you're you're carried threads or you're carried yarns are going to be on a diagonal that's totally fine so let's go ahead and turn back around here to the right side and continue on with our round 9 so I've made the chain 3 and I've treble crocheted in our first stitch this chain 3 is not going to count as a stitch so if need be you can put a stitch marker right in the top of that treble crochet to mark it as your first stitch all right then we can continue on crocheting and we're going to chain two and then we're going to make a cluster chain four cluster in the next single crochet so that means we are going to skip over all these double crochets and that chain one in between and hop all the way over to this single crochet here now a cluster can mean different things depending on the pattern it's more of a category than a specific stitch so to make this cluster it's a treble crochet 2 together it worked into the indicated stitch just one stitch so it's not a decrease because we're working into just one stitch so I'm going to yarn over twice as I would for a normal treble normal treble crochet go right into that indicated stitch there the single crochet and start my treble crochet until I have two loops left on the hook then I'm going to yarn over twice again go back into that same stitch pull up my loop yarn over pull through two yarn over and pull through two and then finally yarn over and pull through all three of the last loops to finish the stitch and that is a cluster for this pattern don't worry I'll be making a few more after that first cluster you're going to chain four one two three four and then we're going to cluster right back in that same stitch so it's almost like a big cluster V stitch yarn over twice go back into that state same stitch again start your treble crochet but stop with two loops left on the hook yarn over again twice pull up some more yarn if you need to like I did go back in that stitch pull up our loop pull through two pull through two and then finally pull through three to finish off the stitch so there is our first cluster chain four cluster after that we jump our tweak chain to again excuse me chain two and then that is basically our repeat we do a cluster chain for a cluster in the next single crochet again skip all those double crochets in between so to make our cluster remember we start a treble crochet stop with two loops left on the hook yarn over twice again go in that same stitch pull up your loop yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through two yarn over and pull through all three then chain four one two three four and we're going to cluster back in that same stitch again yarn over twice go back in that same stitch pull up your loop yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through two stop with the two loops left on the hook yarn over twice more go back into the same stitch pull up a loop yarn over pull through two yarn over pull through two then yarn over and pull through all three then we just chain two again skip over all these and do the same thing in the next single crochet and that's what we're going to continue doing all the way around for round nine and all our round nine repeats so I will see you at the end of round nine all right so when you get to the end of your round nine repeats you've got your chain two here we skip I'll remember all these double crochets but over here we've got that first stitch where we had our chain three and treble that's going to act as the first cluster or rather the second cluster we need to make the first half now so we're going to yarn over twice and go right back in that first stitch and it's fine if you end up in closing those ends again just tacks them down extra extra well you just kind of pull your loop up nice and high there so it doesn't squish squinch down to funny then we're going to continue making our cluster stitch here just as we did before yarn over and pull through three then we can chain four two three four and then we are going to join with a slip stitch to that marked stitch we had that chain three and treble crochet the chain three plus a trouble sort of acts like a treble crochet 2 together cluster so we just want to treat that treble crochet as the top of our first stitch before I do that though I'm going to get this stitch marker out of the way and I also want to pull up our color D because this is where I switch to color D you of course might not be switching depending on how you're using the pattern so I'm going to go ahead and drop that back pick up my color D and finish that slip stitch with our new color just like so just gently pull that through then I'm going to go ahead and slip stitch right into that chain to space the very next chain to space then I chain one and now I am going to single crochet into the chain one space below so remember we skipped over all those double crochets with a chain one in the middle that's where we're going to crochet into what we want to enclose the chain two space above it so let's do that together now I am going to insert my hook down into that chain one space and when I do that you can see that chain two is right on top now because it's our first stitch we also want to tack down the other colors we're not using so I want to find that yellow or excuse me I'm using yellow so the orange and the green and the white and lay those over my hook as I make this single crochet stitch so I'll just go ahead and pull that loop right on up make sure all those ends are in the back not in the front make sure your chain two is also enclosed pull that up yarn over and make a single crochet just like so there we are got a little twisted but easy enough perfectly untwisted so that has anchored down all our other colors from now on we just let those hang for the rest of this round off to the side if our yarn is trying to tangle we can kind of set aside the one color you're working with I find that works really well to keep them from getting tangled if I sort of keep the one I'm working with to decide and push the rest off together then that tends to keep them untangled so all right after that we're ready to continue with our round ten we are going to make three double crochets and a chain one three double crochets in the next chain for space sounds a little familiar right after this all our even-numbered rows are going to be the same we're just going to be changing colors to make our color pattern so three double crochets chain one here are three more double crochets they're all going in that chain for space in between our clusters oops try that again there we go and then we are going to single crochet again we're going to jump down to that chain one space that we skipped over before make sure that chain two is enclosed in our stitch just haft right down as if it was an end almost but it's fine if you can see it there we are and single crochet then we're ready again to make three double crochets and a chain one and three double crochets in that next chain for space so let's do that one more time here together and then we'll enclose one more stitch and then I'll send you off to finish round ten on your own so got my three double crochets chain one finishing up my second half here there we are all set jump over here jump down to that chain one and enclose the chain two above it in a single crochet so that's how we're going to continue on around for round ten and most of the even numbered rows until we get to our handle so I will see you when we get to the end of round ten alright so when you get to the end of round ten of course we've got our three double crochet chain 1 3 double-crochet and all we need to do is slip stitch back in that chain that single crochet stitch so at this point we would drop that color and we want to finish our slip stitch with color B which is what we're using for all our odd numbered rows let's go ahead and gently pull that slip stitch right on through and I like to give color B a little wiggle here I don't want to pull it up too tight and create you know a squinching effect on my bag I don't want this section to seem too tight and I also don't want it too loose so that my stitches get all loose and wobbly I just want to give it a little wiggle sort of pull it through I can give that yellow a little tug right there to make sure that stitch looks the right size just sort of finagle it until I feel comfortable after that I'm ready to begin round nine again although it's round eleven it's just around nine repeat where we start again with a chain three and a double crochet or excuse me a treble crochet right back in that first stitch again make sure to grab your unused colors now we've got three of them we've got our yellow our orange and our green not that part of the yellow and that's our tail let's try that again there we go and then we want the end that's attached to our yarn you can just lay those right over our hook before we pull through and finish our stitch as normal so just repeat rounds nine and ten until you're ready for the handle let's take a look at the finished bag again alright taking another look at the finished bag here you can see here was around seven and around eight and then around nine which is just a repeat breaking on up for every odd-numbered rose and then the even numbered rows are the same of course we're just changing colors as we work our way up if I turn this wrong side out so that you can see how I carried the ends along on the inside here just have to find them let's see get it all laid flat here up here we are this is the side so you can see here I just tacked them down every time I changed colors I try to make sure to work over the colors that I hadn't used yet until I got up here to the top when I knew I'd made my last round with green I went ahead and cut that off and will that end in my last orange round and went ahead and cut that off and will that end in and then same a thing again with the white and then I went in a HUD and used my color D or my lemony color way to make the handles so let's go ahead and go over that now just make sure you end on a color B or odd-numbered row so we're ready to begin our handle rows alright so if you're following the written pattern you'll keep making repeats through round 27 which is of course an odd numbered round and a row nine repeat so we've got our color B here again I want to slip stitch with my new color that I'm going to be making my handles in for my finished bag I used the lemony colorway for this one I'd want to decided to go ahead and use the orange on my little swatch here again it's totally up to you so at this point I'll just go ahead and find my orange color here to yarn over and pull through with and I'm not going to bother tacking down any of the other colors at this point they can all be trimmed off and there ends woven in so I'm going to go ahead and cut my color B as well so I can set that aside and have no more tangles as I finish up my handles now the handles begin with round 28 we're just going to chain one and then we are going to single crochet in each cluster we joined to the top of this trouble that counts as a cluster remember with our little chain three that we're sort of not not counting as a stitch but it gives us that look so we just want to go ahead and make a single crochet right in the top of that treble right there after that we are going to and close each chain two with two single crochets worked into chain-1 space below so remember we were in closing these by working into this before with one single crochet now we just want to do it with two so there's one and two then we're going to go ahead and a single crochet in the top of this cluster like so and then we are going to work a four single crochets in the chain 4 space so one two three and four then we've got another cluster so a single crochet in the top of that and then we've got another chain two space so we're going to come down to this chain one and work two single crochets to enclose it one and two then single crochet in the top of this cluster then four single crochets in the chain 4 space and that's how we're going to continue our repeat on around for this round at the end of round 28 you should be back up to 96 single crochets which is the number of stitches we had if you remember before we began our pattern rows oops you can see I single crocheted right into that chain two space got to pull it out need to drop down to that chain one and and close it with two single crochets so just keep working your way around make sure you single crochet in the top of each cluster work four single crochets and each of these chain four spaces and then of course enclose those with two single crochets work down there in the chain one and I will see you at the end of round two 28 okay so at the end of round 28 you should come back round to that first single crochet you made and we're not changing colors anymore unless you want to so I'm just going to go ahead and slip stitch with our handle color here for round 30 I'm going to chain one and I recuse me around 29 is what we're at now I'm just going to chain one and single crochet in each stitch around this just gives us a really nice space before we begin training for our handles so for round 29 just go ahead and work a single crochet in each stitch around for 96 stitches and then we'll join at the end of the round and in round 30 we'll do some chaining to start our handles alright so at the end around 29 you can go ahead and join with a slip stitch however at this point before you move on to round 30 you need to put some stitch markers in the round to figure out the placement for your handles so you'd go ahead and pull that loop up high and you can secure this with a stitch marker too if you'd like so you don't lose any of your stitches here and then what you're going to want to do is start counting your stitches from the first stitch of this round and in the written pattern I've told you to mark stitches 18 44 66 and 92 so you would count for the first one need 1 9 18 so count 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 and place a stitch marker in that stitch and then you would want to do it with stitch 42 44 excuse me so you keep counting 19 20 21 22 all around to continue marking stitches 44 66 and 92 now on my little swatch bag this isn't going to work obviously so let's pull back up the finished bag for a moment okay so here we have our finished bag so at this point you would have worked this round of course to secure that first round down there and then another round right here of single crochet so this is the round you'd be putting your stitch markers into but essentially again you just count out those stitch markers after you've got those stitch markers placed you want to lay your bag flat like this of course you won't have handles on it just tuck those in back there but you want to make sure that those stitch markers line up front and back so you'd have two markers on this side and two stitch markers on the back side and you want to make sure those line up count your stitches in between the markers on both sides count your stitches on the sides between the markers on both sides make sure your bottom is nice and flat and that those line up nicely and the reason I say this is although I've given you exact numbers everyone's gauge is just a little bit different that's normal that's natural nothing we can do about it but that means your angle might be just ever so slightly different than mine and your stitch markers might need to be adjusted so take your time adjust those make sure they line up really nicely if you need a closer look at this technique again I do have a separate tutorial linked out for this it's on my youtube channel and it's late at the link in the description after you've got your stitch markers placed then it's time to continue with round 30 alright so we've got our stitch markers placed in our round 29 and back on my little swatch here's obviously these aren't the exact same numbers but follow the pattern and check your placement and then we can continue with round 20 excuse me around 30 we are going to chain 1 and single crochet in each stitch including that first one to our first marker so just single crochet along until you come to at first marked stitch of course we probably have a few more here that I've got and that's fine again I'm just working on a tiny little version here so that it's a little easier for you to see then we are going to single crochet in that first marked stitch like so and then you're going to chain 70 so 1 2 3 4 5 etc you get it till 70 this is the length of handle that I really like it fits over my shoulder comfortably but you may want to change this you can make this handle as long as you want if you just want a little handle that's more hand held you could chain 3 or 40 try it out try different lengths make a chain put it over your shoulder see what length is gonna work for you just make sure both of your handles have the same chain length that's gonna be the most important thing so you chain 70 skip all the stitches in between the first stitch marker and the second stitch marker and continue stitching over there obviously I'm going to have to chain a few more here to reach I'm not going to worry about counting you get the idea you do want to make sure your handles of course are the same length but for the sake of time I'll just make one long enough to reach here then I'm going to jump over to where it the second stitch marker is and insert my hook there and make a single crochet in the second marked stitch again you want to skip all the stitches in between now on my full-size bag this would not be at the end we would be skipping stitches on the side here just because we've made so many rows that that's where we've ended up so you'll need to take that into account too if you make a bunch of alterations to this bag if you're following the written instructions this should work out fine so we've single crocheted in the second marked stitch so we can go ahead and take that stitch marker out again skipping all the stitches in between and we're going to single crochet along until we get to the third marked stitch do do just single crochet right along and then of course we're going to do the same thing we are just going to make a long chain and skip all the stitches in between again if you need a closer look at this technique that is in the link tutorial specifically for bag handles so we'll single crochet in that third marked stitch and go ahead and take that stitch marker out if we want and then we want to chain another seventy or however many we want for our bag handle just make sure obviously that it's long enough to reach and fit over your shoulder or your arm or in your hand however you want to adjust that length for you make a few more here just get over to our side and then I'll find that fourth marked stitch that last one hanging out over here I can single crochet right in that one again just skipped all those stitches in between it could've been a little a little bit easier if I'd taken that stitch marker out first let's try that there we go got my finger on that stitch so hopefully I won't lose it here now that I've dropped my yarn off my hook there we go get my hook in there and make my single crochet like so then I can just continue single crocheting along until I get back to where I started and join with a slip stitch and that will be the end of round 30 around 31 32 and 33 you're just going to chain 1 and single crochet around so for around 31 you'll be crocheting in each each stitch and then you want to single crochet in each individual chain don't try and single crochet around the whole handle unless that's a different look you're going for I really think it's important this stage to crochet into each individual chain but that's it round 31 is just single crochet around into each stitch and chain rounds 32 and 33 chain 1 and single crochet around into each stitch gives you a nice firm handle so let's go ahead and take one more look at the finished bag all right so here you can see we've got our round 30 where we did a big chain all the way around and then we came back around for around 31 32 and 33 and created a nice handle now after that I did come back in and join down here and single crochet along the inside of the handle as well I like to do a little decreasing here sometimes right in the corners whatever you like is up to you and this whole round here on the inside of the handle is optional I feel it just makes it a little bit sturdier nicer looking handle but again it's just single crocheting around and joining when you're done and here you can see the length of my chain of 70 just right for fitting over my shoulder but again you can try it on make a shorter handle you could even move those stitch markers in if you wanted just a really small handheld handle here you can have some fun with it and make this bag just right for you and that's how you make the citrus

  1. Very nice tutorial, Tamara! The bag is very attractive, and you are a natural teacher. You have such a pleasant voice and gave wonderfully clear instructions. A+ 😉

  2. I just made this bag and it turned out great! I made one in my daughter's high school colors: green, black, and white. There is a couple more weeks in the term before the school year is over and I'm going to make some for her teachers and give them as end of the year gifts. Going to put a few things in them her teachers could use and then they can keep them as school spirit bags.

  3. I think if you’re going to show us how to make that that having to go to and search for another tutorial is so inconvenient especially for newbies. Just my opinion though.
