Crochet and me
Last year I bought this lovely green and brown cotton and my idea was to make a scarf with it. A spring / summer scarf.
In lack of any knitting ideas I turned to Vogue – crochet on the go. I like patterns in this book, and actually, I bought this yarn thinking it would be a nice combination for Daisy Chain Scarf (Ravelry link). But than I was having second thoughts… Would this really be a good springy type of a pattern? Hmmmmm…. Maybe I’d try Flower Motif Scarf (Ravelry link) – it looks more airy and the combination of green and brown would look great!
So, I start. Find the hook. Get to the instructions.
Oooohhh, ooohhhh… I don’t get any of these. There are no charts and the language is … well, not clear to me.
Maybe I’d try a simpler pattern. Daisy chain looks a bit simpler. And people on Ravelry said it was easy once you get the hold of the pattern…
Let’s just say – I waisted two evenings just to find out that I have to start with something simpler. Or maybe really carefully read the ‘learn how to crochet’ chapter of the book…
So, now, I knit cupcakes. I can actually understand the instructions. They’re fun and easy to make. And I hope they’ll make somebody happy . :)
