So I practised my crochet today and made a hat… or most of a hat… and now I can’t for the life of me figure out which way around crochet goes! I have a feeling that I am displaying the hat wrong side out, but it was much tidier that way so wrong side it is!
The problem is that my self-teaching methods always seem to lead to something being a tad wrong with my technique. Same thing happened with learning to knit from knittinghelp.com videos. Some may be able to pass it off as their ‘unique style,’ Mum just regarded me closely while I was knitting, turned her head to the side and frowned then said, “You are knitting backwards!” As it turned out, knitting the right way round proved to be a whole bunch easier.
My crochet style seems to be alriiiiight, but it is definitely helpful having some one around with crochet expertise when it comes to photographing your newfound skill to show off to
the entire blog world your three readers. I’m hoping that if I got it wrong that people will find it endearing rather than just plain stupid.
