As I stated in Part 1 of my Crochet Journey post, I am not very good at practising new skills I like to be able to create something whilst practising. So having completed a few basic stitches and got the hang of them I searched for a square to do and found the sunburst square and tackled that, once again with the assistance of a Bella Coco video. The result is below, not perfect but good enough to warrant a wool purchase to start my first ever crochet project, a blanket for me 😁
Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos of the blanket in progress – probably because I was just too excited for words at watching it grow before my eyes but more amazed by the fact that I was actually creating it!!
The end result is this
I am still in love with it as much now as when I made it. I have learnt a lot since completing this blanket, my tension has improved and my sewing in of ends is greatly improved.
Wool used is Stylecraft Aran, the cream is Hayfield Bonus, 5mm hook.
