Its quite good fun and addictive too. For anyone new to crochet there are some great youtube tutorials that teach you step by step, which when you are new to crochet may be more helpful than the many great books out there. A few friends have recently decided to have a go and its great being able to share my love of crochet with other enthusiasts.
I am no crochet pro – as yet, but l have big dreams in the world of crochet, and am happy to say, that l have recently finished my first Granny square blanket, which l am really happy with and it has inspired me to explore crochet at a deeper level.
I worked with two yarns, blue and green. I like the way the colours compliment each other. The colours are two of my favourite colours, – colours l enjoy working with.
I didnt use any particular pattern, once you learn how to work with granny squares, its very easy to explore and find ideas for how you want your project to look. You can be as inventive as you wish.
Working with individual squares can be quite time consuming, and joining them together even more so. But the reward of seeing your finished work, makes the hard work worth it.
