Crochet!

So I’ve always had a passion for making things and after a trip to the shops I came home equipped with books, hooks and wool. So this blog is to record and keep track of all my latest crochet attempts!

Well that was my intention…. but the books were confusing with vague pictures and pro crochet jargon. So I started goggling techniques and forums and later found myself on you tube. Who would’ve known it would turn out to be a crochet haven!

So playing about with some aran wool (bought purely due to its thickness and texture) and a 4.5mm crochet hook I followed a you tube clip and literally two minutes later produced this heart below….

This pattern includes:

  • A slip stitch
  • Chain six
  • Slip stitch into the first chain stitch
  • Chain one
  • Now do seven single crochets in the ring
  • Slip stitch into the first single crochet
  • Chain four
  • In the same stitch do three triple crochets
  • In the next single crochet on the ring, do two double crochets
  • In the next single crochet, do one double crochet
  • In the next single crochet, do one double crochet and chain three
  • Slip stitch into the third chain from the hook
  • In the same original single crochet, do one more double crochet
  • In the next single crochet along, do a double crochet
  • In the next space , do two double crochets
  • In the next space, do three triple crochets
  • Chain four and slip stitch into the remaining space
  • Cut and pull through yarn
  • Weave in ends

Now don’t get me wrong its nothing spectacular, but it proved to me that being able to watch the technique and having the capability to fast forward and rewind maybe anything was possible with a small amount of dedication…
