Learning to crochet.
I am a self-taught hooker (with many thanks to The Knitting and Crochet Bible!) and am very much in the early stages of what will hopefully be a long and productive journey! I have managed to complete two big (by my standards!) projects and then had a little play around and completed two little projects. The scarves are each made from 30 Granny squares and are pretty long. The rose decoration is from this post on Attic24, and the star is from this post on Jellywares - this one was a real challenge as the pictures wouldn't show on the computer screen and the crochet terminology was American. I used this webpage for US/UK crochet term conversions. I had to make a couple of adjustments to the pattern as I went along but am happy with what I produced in the end, and even feeling a bit Christmassy!
