To Avoid Hand Fatigue While Crocheting:

· Make sure you are sitting comfortably with your hands and arms supported when possible.

· Take frequent breaks

· Perform hand, fingers and wrist stretching exercises - ex: Place fingers of each hand against one another and push. Rotate wrists, clockwise and counterclockwise. With left hand, push your right hand back toward the forearm. Repeat with other hand.

· If working on a project that is particularly delicate or awkward stitches that causes tension or pain in your hands - have a second project on the go to give your hands a break and relieve the tension.

· Crocheting should be fun, don't make it a chore by creating fatigue or soreness in your hands.
