Hi Chain Gangstas,

I've made it my priority to learn crochet for reals this year (2004, 2005 and 2006 were just trial runs)!

Here's two swatches I did from Crafty Daisies Free Learn to Crochet Lessons (http://craftydaisies.com/category/learn-to-crochet/):



The first swatch is Pretty Pebbles Square - and has an awesome texture that's hard to capture on film. It's a pattern repeat of sc and tr.  Here's the pattern: http://www.geocities.com/alyssa5000/pebbles.html

The other swatch is simply single crochet. Smiley

A larger view can be found here:

Thanks for peeking in at my pebbles!

How did I miss those free crochet lessons? I'm going to follow along and do the exercises for things I don't know. Thanks for sharing!
