I started crocheting 4 days ago Cheesy and having started knitting first i found crocheting a welcome relief! It's so easy! I found this pattern in the Stitch n Bitch Happy Hooker book but did it in my own colour and without their modifications. When i'd finished i added tiny pearls around the rim and added a candy cane brooch to make it (optionally) christmassy Smiley I'm proud of my first proper crochet project! hope u like!

It's great!
I think with crochet you feel more control--you only have one stitch open at one time or something.  Smiley
