#BESTIDEAEVER Love these crochet tutorials)

I'm an experienced crocheter and came here to get ideas about how to teach a little neighbor girl. This is the second beginning crochet video I've watched where the crocheter is holding the yarn in the left hand so it goes over the top of the index finger from front to back, which seems awkward to me. Is this the way it's done nowadays? I was taught to hold it so it comes around from the back to the front, which seems to me to bring the yarn into a better position to hook. I'm also a tatter and was showed by a master tatter the difference between how the thread is held for tatting and crocheting. In both cases, his thread came around the back of the hand so I know I'm not the only one who holds it this way. Also, this showed the "knife" hold for the hook, which is my preferred way to hold mine. I have known others who prefer the "pencil" hold. Whenever I've taught others to crochet, I show both holds and encourage them to try both to see which is most comfortable for them. Just a couple of observations that I hope will help rather than confuse beginners.

pattern reads(decrease row) ch1 turn;hdcin next hdc and in each across. don't understand where is decrease part of stitch

Thanks so much!! I always keep meaning to get going on projects and never finish them. I have a random pile of granny squares and a half completed amigurumi owl. I think I just bite off more than I'm ready for. But I actually finished my dishtowel!! Thanks!! I'll be looking forward to learning more!!

Finally I find out how to change colors when I am crocheting. What wonderful ideas for separating the different color wools. Thank you very, very much for a wealth of information.
