I learned to crochet by pretty much sitting at my grandmother's knee and watching her do it. I lost intrest until about 4 years ago, when I weird illness put me in bed for 3 weeks and TV was driving me nuts. So, now I can crochet, passably. The problem lies that I cannot follow a pattern to save my hooks! I can look at simple things and come close to replicating it, but I just cannot seem to figure patterns out. I know all the symbols and abbreviations. If I don't know a stitch I look it up and follow those directions, but nothing ever seems to come out right. Anyone have a similar problem or have a tip that can keep me on track? I'm desperate to make a flying Piggie!! And that star blanket. Bad things happened when I tried the star blanket
Anyway! Thanks for reading!
