Last Autumn I bought a craft magazine that said it would teach you how to crochet. Despite all the diagrams and explanations about the different stitches, I still couldn’t get the hang of it. A visit to my mum and YouTube were needed to help! Mum showed me how to make rounds (a bit like granny squares but round) but I found them quite tricky. Next I watched YouTube and tried working in lines, which looks more like knitting to the untrained eye. By Christmas I had made a head band and a scarf with approx. 6 or 7mm hook. I then became a little addicted and started a blanket with a 10mm hook! The pictures of the blanket were taken before I got more wool, made it three times bigger and added a wavy edge. Whilst the pattern is simple and relatively plain, it grows quickly.
