Crochet Win

Look who’s made something with crochet!

I finally feel like I’m getting somewhere with this crochet malarkey just as I was about to give up. I now know what I was doing wrong to begin with – my yarn was too thin!

Thankfully I stumbled across this Boodles textile yarn in TK Maxx of all places 🙂 It was reduced to £3.99 (usually £6 in Hobbycraft) so it came home with me and after purchasing a big-ass crochet hook I knew I was on the right path.

I found the most helpful and easy-to-follow tutorial on Youtube form Expression Fibre Arts. I watched the tutorial once through to get an idea of things and then on the second time around I followed along, pausing at different points and replaying bits to catch up. I think half the battle with crochet is finding a comfortable way for your to hold everything and her way really worked well for me.

I now have a bit of confidence with crochet and I can’t wait to make a granny square!
