I’ve been wanting to learn to crochet for a while, I had a go myself with a booklet but got a bit confused and just ended up with some knots that I didn’t know whether they were right or wrong. Therefore when my friend suggested that some of us have a get together and learn I thought this was a great idea. She had taught herself to make a granny square from this youtube video and she (and the video) then taught us.
It was a little confusing at first and I really couldn’t get the hang of the basic knots until i realised that with a twist of the wrist it becomes easier. This square is really easy to make once you get the hang of the clusters and the chains as you just repeat them round in a circle. When you complete a round you can either carry on or switch to a different colour. Here is my first attempt.
Since last Saturday I have got a little obsessed and have been crocheting all the time (even on the bus). Ive started these black, red and pink squares which I plan to make bigger then join together to make a blanket.
