Ok, ok so I know this is a sewing blog, however I was really getting wound up that all my crafty buddies can crochet or knit and I dont know which end of a crochet hook to use! Well that was a week ago and I’ve attempted to teach myself! Which meant I had to go shopping!!!
After purchasing a set of hooks, books and far, far more wool than I needed, I set about learning.
I have learnt that I can’t chain stitch quickly. At. All.
However I can treble crochet quite quickly!
Really need to improve on the chain stitching!
I can also make rings which I’m proud of!
This is the start of a big rug I’m hoping to make. Its big, chunky acrylic yarn (wool allergies!)… And I’ve already ran out of wool!
I found the pattern in Big & Little Crochet from Hatchette Partworks, which is filled with lovely patterns.
In the same magazine I thought I would try making the double crochet facecloths (thought they’d be good for a beginner)
Think I’m getting the hang of this yarn malarkey!
I now have a use for my yarn bag (previously used to store my looms)
Think I’m gonna need a bigger bag!!!
Sewing resumes tomorrow with some mash-up dungarees in navy Irish linen which I’m desperate to do something with as I’ve now had it over a year!
See you soon with stitchy goodness! 💜
