A lot of people in my knitting group have taken up crochet, so I decided I should too. I have a book, Erica Knight’s one, and I am attempting the easiest pattern.
I do like how easy it is to undo crochet and have another go. This yarn is cotton and it’s a bit splitty, which is not good for a beginner. It’s all double crochet, but at least I get to be proficient at this stitch.
I’ve started working on my squares again – it was an effort to remember what to do. Fortunately I still had fabulous instructions from here.
While working on my squares, I have been watching the latest version of Poldark – I would definitely recommend it – but isn’t that man’s life terrible? Everything goes wrong time and time again. Anyone read the novels?
This whole crochet lark was so that I could make Granny Squares! I thought I should just try to make one and I found a great tutorial here. The three chains in each corner make the shape stay nice and square. It was really quite addictive – I will stop after just one more round. Now my plan is to make a load of these and make a blanket – one colour at a time. I already have two balls of this in my stash.
