She came up with it by herself.
My sister (her grandmother) taught her to crochet the "right" way. I don't know if this style happened at that time because she had problems wrapping with the left or if it happened after she had some alone time at home trying to figure it out.
My sister wasn't going to teach her any more stitches until she came around to doing it the right way. I said to show her the stitches and let her figure out how to do it her way. So far it seems to be working. I didn't pick up on what stitches she was doing on that square but it was more than the single crochet she learned with.
Once I saw her after she gained some speed is when I equated it to English knitting and had her try some. She almost instantly had the speed.
I knit Continental so I showed her similarly to how she has to be shown new crochet stitches, told her to knit just like she crochets and just make the needle tip do what I was doing.
When I showed her the video she said the way she points her index finger when pulling through looked weird...
