Ever since I've seen these crochet flowers in Mollie Makes I've wanted to make them.
Here's the spread in the mag:
Unfortunately I can't crochet.
Fortunately my mother can - and when she came to visit this week she taught me 'how to' crochet! She's the sort of person who has crochet hooks in her hand bag and always has a knitted or crochet project on the go.(You can see where I get it from!)
I didn't find it easy at first and I joked with my mum & kept asking her if I was ready to 'go for' the flowers yet...she laughed (in a kind way, of course).
She taught me basic stitches and I'm very proud of what I've produced.
|I can crochet....squares.....I made these!|
|Mum quickly twirled and whirled...|
I now have my own crochet hooks. I need to set myself the challenge now to make some flowers - I'll post my efforts as and when!
Wish me luck! 'Chain...single...treble..'
