hi everyone

i have just leart tonight how to crochet, its great lol. i have knitted for about 2 years now and adore it. ive collected up bags full of ends of balls of yarn that i want to use up, so crocheting a blanket for my 4 year olds bed for the dummer time is ideal.

i tried to learn about a year ago and could get the 2nd chain right, i've done about 10 so far, there far far from perfect, but its a start.

sooo excited hehe

susi:woohoo:

Good for you! Did you teach yourself to crochet, or learn from someone else?

Crochet goes much faster, is much sturdier than most knitted items.

Enjoy!

hi

i have taught myself. i'm just practasing on making a throw blanket or my son. i am starting to have a problem. its kinda turning into a bowl shape. i have tried to increase a st but not sure if i've done it right.

i am loving it though, my son loves home made things so its idea i can make things so much quicker :yay:

wonderfullll ..
now here, you did not say whether you making a round item or a square??
if round then look at the other one that you posted .. I answered there for round .. ok ..
if square .. then you should have the same number of stitches per row. OR rectangle ... you should still have the same number of stitches per row. ok ......
