Your blanket looks great.
I've tried crochet but still can't get to grips with it.

Well done on learning a new skill. I love crochet too, how did you learn was it an online tutorial? x


My mum tried to teach me, but she found it hilarious that I couldn't get to grips with it, she spent more time laughing than she did showing me lol, so I borrowed her Stitch & Bitch book & learnt from there, from then on it was just practice

i think it looks fantastic. Great job, I crochet and knit and I love them both.
Good luck,


Haha, you're hooked now. That's how it gets you.
I haven't managed a whole large thing/garment yet, but would love to crochet a cardigan. The drawback is how expensive yarn is, especially the really nice ones. :(


I am full of admiration. I just never could get the knack! This is very accomplished. :)

i taught myself too after years of failing miserably at getting someone to teach me. i have made a bag, flowers, scarf etc so far and hope to get on with a bigger project soon,

My Mum tried only the other week to try yet again to teach me. It didn't help that when I got a book out she said 'oh but I don't do it like that'! After I'd done a bit she turned to me and said 'you're going to throw that aren't you?' I think the look I gave her said it all. Maybe I need to look at a video tutorial and try yet again LOL

Your project looks just brilliant and you should be very proud - well done.


OMG you have done amazing.
A friend tried to teach me ...she gave up lol !
i do not feel so bad now i know some of you have tried & failed too lol !
I will try again with a new teacher (relief to my friend lol)
