My very first Crochet!

I've been wanting to learn how to crochet since i saw so many talented bloggers out there crocheting beautiful flower brooch or granny squares to make blanket, the problem was that the "crochet for beginners" book that hubby bought for me awhile back was still confusing for someone like me who doesn't even know what is what and which is which eventhough they provided pictures that might be helpful to others but not for me, but i finally brave myself to crochet after watching the tutorial videos in youtube.

So, here is my first flower crochet! i had to pause, rewind and play the videos many many times to make this flower! Thanks to a magazine that I bought awhile back that gave me a free crochet hook, i can learn how to crochet.

Then I added a button on the flower and voila! i still need to get used to it and remember how to make the slip knot, slip stitch and double crochet, yes still basic but i'm happy!

I'm gonna make more flowers and put them together to make a few layers just like the other one i made, i'm gonna use other color of yarns and hopefully when i get the hang of it, what i'm going to learn next is to make a granny square...hopefully! anyways, I wish everyone a nice weekend! xx Susan

  3. well done on your first crochet. i taught myself how to do it using you tube, it took me 4 days to perfect the first basic stitch but im glad i kept with it as now i can read patterns and all sorts. once you have got the hang of it you will find crochet relaxing, fun and portable. happy hooking x

  4. well done you - i still have this to do xxx

  5. Fantastic! I'm very impressed! I would love to learn to crochet - but I'm only just getting used to sewing with my machine! I will learn one day though - maybe you can guide me!? I'm very jealous! Lovely flower! x

  6. Oh, I'm so proud of you! Very nice, Susan. Your flower looks lovely on the Cath Kidson paper. A nice embellishment. I love to crochet and I use to do it a lot. I know you will enjoy it. Once you learn the simple stitches you can make some simple, lovely items, like shawls, wraps,etc.
    Do keep us posted on your progress.

    Thank you for your dearly sweet comment on my recent post.

    Enjoy your weekend,
    Marianne xo

  14. Hiya
    I’m just sending out a quick message to let people know their Faith Hope and Charity Swapping partners. Days of spreedsheet fiddling I tell you, if this works it’s going on my CV! I won’t have access to a PC from Tues 31st until June 6th – so any questions will have to wait til I get back I’m afraid. I’m going to put up a quick post on the rules before I go, but for now you can check out your partner’s blog and start figuring out what they might like.
    Your swap partner is Miss Daisy

    Thanks for playing along!
