A few years ago, I was on a trip with my husband (who was then my fiance) and his sister. She has a good hand at crochet. So I took this as a sign and decided to learn crochet. She was in the middle of a project but was kind enough to take the time to demonstrate the basic stitches. I had a go and tried them out myself and it was ok. But as luck would have it when I returned from the trip and tried it out again it was a harried attempt. So I put that on the back burner yet again.
Then a couple of months ago, a very dear friend told me that she and the family was moving to Canada for good. I was determined to give wool work another go and make it a success. Since knitting was familiar territory I decided to try my hand at a scarf. I was very pleased with the outcome. You can find the pattern here.
Since this project turned out well, I took a chance with crochet. Armed with video tutorials on You Tube, I made these –
1) Little Girls’ Favorite Throw – Click here for the pattern.
2)A couple of ponchos. The green one was made by my sis-in-law – I don’t have a pattern for that one. I made the cream one and you can find the pattern here.
