As a beginner to crochet, it is quite daunting to start reading and working from a pattern. There just seems to be a lot of random letters all together, kind of like a whole new language. Well that is right! Crochet has a language of it’s own. And every combination of ‘random’ letters mean something.
I wrote up a list of the most common crochet abbreviations for you and I have a YouTube tutorial: https://youtu.be/Ii4QpYM8YpM
The photo is sideways so that the writing is larger and easier for you to read.
I have a few Facebook pages running and a Facebook group. They are for crafters of any walk in the creative world. Don’t hesitate to have a look and feel free to join.
Hope to see you….
These cute and bright pegs are a perfect gift for children. They can use them to close their favourite packet of chips. These can be used to hang up sticky reminders on notice boards. There is so many options for these cuties.
All the equipment needed to make these are as follows:
And last but not least…..imagination!!!
This was a birthday present for my father. As I was busy with the blanket, I wondered if it was a little too young for a 40 something man, but it wasn’t. I had only 3 months in which to make it in and I was amazed at how I managed that. I guess when you have limited time, one can do the impossible with a little motivation.
I made over 1530 solid granny squares to complete this blanket and finished size is suitable for a 3/4 bed.
I am a person who never seems to complete a project. I like to start something and then while I am busy with that project I see another one that looks interesting. So I leave the first project and start on the new one. Here is all the projects I have made and still making over the days…just to show a few.
This scarf-necklace is very easy to make and so quick.
Pattern: 1 ball of 80g wool in colour of choice.
Chain 10, sc in chain across, turn, and sc across. Keep sc until the piece measures 4cm from top to bottom. Finish off.
With the remaining wool, chain as many chains as you can get, join to the beginning of the starting chain made. Now all you have to do is loop the long chain piece until it is all looped up. It doesn’t have to be equally wound up.
Take the little crocheted piece made at the beginning, the little swatch-like piece, and sew it over the looped chains to hold them all in place and to hide the join of the chains.
Viola! Completed scarf-necklace.
I have so much little bits of wool laying around from completed projects and I decided that it was time to use them up and make room for new projects’ supplies.
I have started a series of beginner crochet lessons for left-handed people.
