I remember my grandma trying to teach me to crochet when I was a little girl. How I wish I'd taken more notice now, how many things do we regret when we get older?
I seem to be having a lot of trouble learning to crochet. I've bought a book which shows step by step instructions on how to do particular stitches and I've watched tutorials online too, but I still can't quite grasp it. Knitting is so much easier, to me anyway.
My first attempt was something from the book I've got. I don't suppose it's too bad as a first attempt, but look how the yarn crisscrosses, I think I'm winding the yarn the wrong way round the hook, I have to try very hard to remember which way it goes.
My second and third attempts, this time from a tutorial online. Still not great.
This is one I did this morning. I don't know if I'm doing my last slip stitch in the right place, it looks a bit odd.
I'll persevere, I really want to be able to crochet.
