My First Official Crochet Project
My first official crochet project!
This is my first “real” project after learning to crochet a few weeks ago.
Since I need to make 2, I thought I’d work on both at the same time just to make sure they turn out the same.
I am using the recommended hook size and some yarn from my stash that is just a worsted weight or so. I wanted to see the size I would make with these since my gauge is not very good, etc.
For my first project, it’s not too bad. I know it is full of mistakes but I just kept going as I’m not good enough yet to recognize errors or fix them. I did not use a contrasting colour for the loop to minimize anyone noticing the errors. :) hehe
For the next pair I will go to a smaller hook and/or a lighter weight of yarn to make the smaller pair that I was asked to make.
