Very cute! I've been trying to learn how to crochet, too, but you've made a lot more progress than I have!

That came out just marvelous!

I loved making those when I crocheted!

If you have yellows, greens, or orange yarns, you can make lemon, lime & orange slices with the same pattern too!

These are two video tutorials I've used that have been a great help. The one lady posted these Youtube tutorials for a friend she was teaching to crochet. The gal had a stroke and couldn't remember what she had taught so she gave her something to refer to. The other one is by Mikey. He's a great teacher. He did a series of tutorials for Curtzy Crochet Hooks. This is the first one and they autoplay in order. Ignore the part about signing up in your email. All the videos are complete right here. I knew how to crochet before. My mother taught me but I didn't do anything fancy and it had been a while before I picked up a hook. This was a good refresher and helped me iron out the details like which stitch do you crochet at the end of a row and how to crochet a circle.

Oh, how cute. And it brings back such good memories for me--not only of the watermelon potholders I saw as a kid, but also of watermelons--YUM!

You may be a "new again" crocheter, but you seem to be excelling at it!
