After my last crocheting experiment a good friend set me right when she said – Bec your first try at crocheting was shit. Boy was she right.
And, even though my first try was pretty awful, I still enjoyed it. Plus I had bought four crochet hooks and so couldn’t give up after my first try.
A few friends suggested that I try to crochet a granny square as my second try. It was good advice. There are heaps and heaps of YouTube videos and blogs out there that show you how to crochet a granny square. I watched quite a few. My issue was they often expected some crochet knowledge and I had absolutely none.
So I had a few cracks and still failed. How hard could this crochet business be?
Finally I found this great little blog – Bunny Mummy – and it all clicked. I also changed the size of my crochet from an I to an H. Not sure what the secret was, but I don’t care, as I finally nailed one square. In case you are wondering it is the one on the right below, not the left!
Next up, a blanket. Okay, that might be a bit ambitious… maybe just another square!Pin It
