My Crochet Journey – Part 2

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.

  1. OMG, the number of tails you must have had to weave in for this beauty! LOL 😀 I’m like you in that I need to be creating something while practising a new skill. Until now I have yet to create my first gauge swatch 😀 😀
