This week I have been teaching myself how to crochet. I brought a hook and already had some wool as I like knitting. I searched You Tube for an easy to follow "how to" video and found there are plenty available, here is the one I started with. I have now mastered the single and the double stitches which are a couple of the basics and I'm quite enjoying it!
I have also finally finished making a headband for my daughter. I had made a few fabric "pop" flowers over Christmas but wanted something to go in the center of them. I ordered some crochet flowers (before I knew how easy they were to make) and jewelled buttons on eBay and they arrived yesterday so I got to finish it. My daughter really likes it and has worn it to school today to show her friends! I am going to make another one for my youngest as I still have some of the pop flowers left and I think this one came out rather well.
Updated: This is the 2nd one, finished this evening.
