My mom taught me how to crochet maybe 10 years or so ago. And I use the phrase "taught to crochet" loosely. All I could do was single crochet (which I didn't know had a name), I had no idea what the proper techniques for finishing or changing colors or anything were, and looking at a pattern baffled and scared me .
Craftster has inspired me to get off my butt and learn how to crochet for real, so a couple of weeks ago I bought a book with basic stitches in it and finally crocheted something a) from a pattern and b)that used more than just single crochet. Hooray! I'm so happy I can finally do this. I can't wait to make more stuff
So here's what I made:
This first pic has truer color
But you can see the scarflette a bit better in this one:
And for anyone who's interested, I bought the pattern here:
Thanks for looking!
