I don't know any fancy crochet stitches, but I would like to learn. I made an afghan for my grandmother this past summer. It is her Christmas gift! I made one for my great-grandmother many years ago, and my grandmother admired it so much that I decided it was time to make one for her.
This is gorgeous! I am working on a similar afghan pattern but smaller scale - but I can't figure out for the life of me what color to use to sew these together. I started with one of the colors in the pattern but feel it looks strange on the pieces that aren't that color! (If that makes sense...LOL!) Your afghan looks so perfect and I can't see the stitches. I'd love advice as to what you did and what color you used to sew them together since they're not of course all the same color and there's no border. TIA!!!
i just started crocheting on saturday, believe it or not! i took a class at a.c.moore and i picked it up rather quickly. let me just say that i am hooked - no pun intended! lol i am working on a blanket, which started out with straight, squared corners, but has now begun to round - help!
My mom just taught me over the weekend. I'm almost done w/ my first project, a potholder.
Envyme- it is actually pretty easy to learn a single crochet and how to start a chain. The other stitches are more complicated but it's like that w/ anything. If you don't have a class near you or have someone who knows how to teach you, there are some great videos on You Tube. I watched one on double crochet when I was doing a single and really messed up though! No wonder I had to scrap a huge piece of work!
I am really a knitter, but I like to crochet as well. I'm just not as good at it. :)
I have a lot of odd balls of yarn and would like to crochet a granny square afghan but I want it to be one big square, not a lot of little ones that I have to sew together. Does anyone have a pattern /directions for this?
