I got my mum to teach me crochet stitches back in February.  I really like it, it's pretty relaxing, and a good thing to do on the train.  I started with granny squares, which I've yet to get round to doing anything with.

This is my scarf.  Not my first project, but the one I'm most pleased with.  I've worn it loads.  It's made with Wendy Supreme Cotton Chunky, which was a lovely yarn to crochet with.  I used this pattern of diy4life's, just made it a bit wider and longer.

It's pretty long, it's made of most of 3 balls of wool.  (I also made an ami octopus, which I'll post at some point).  That's it laid over my double bed.

And a close up of the pattern

This was probably my first project.  I was too cheap to buy some wool for a possibly doomed experiment so it's made of some leftover wool from some tapestry my mum did, that stuffs pretty horrible to crochet. The cosy's not the prettiest (my boyfriend calls it the 'crusty raver pouch'), but functional and free, so I'm pleased.  Also I made up the 'pattern'.

And it open, in case you're interested.  I lined it with bright pink felt.

And here's a crochet bowl I made.  I could find out the name of the yarn I used if anyone's interested. I wasn't a bit fan of it though.  The pattern's from 'So pretty! Crochet' by Amy Palanjian, it's aimed at a thicker wool, but I just used a smaller hook.

Any comments, critiques or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Love the scarf! Very Pretty! And the ipod cozy doesn't look that bad, lol. It's very eclectic. Cheesy

:my pintrest:
I will do personal swaps. Cheesy
I have a few skeins of Caron Simply Soft I would love to supply swap with anyone for other types of yarn, I am finding the yarn a tad hard to work with.
