Sitting around in the evenings watching rubbish tv just isn’t enough so I thought I’d teach myself a new craft. I’ve been meaning to learn to crochet for some time now and sadly I have failed to find anyone I know to teach me, so out with a book!
I have been learning from Simple Crochet by Erika Knight. The illustrations are really clear and the text is quite easy to follow as long as you read through it carefully (no skimm reading)! The problem is that I’m not quite getting my head around it. As you can see from my first attempt at double crochet I managed to decrease a stitch each row … ooops. I’m also not convinced that the stitch looks like it should. It certainly doesn’t look like it does in the book. Maybe I need to find an expert after all!
If anyone knows of any good on-line tutorials for beginners or even a great book then leave me a comment. Better yet, if you know how to crochet drop by and I’ll put the kettle on and get out the yarn!
