First crochet EVER!!
I'm branching out!! Bought myself a learn to crochet kit with birthday money from my MIL. I've been knitting for about 3 years now and have been feeling like a new challenge is in order. So far so good, I've learned single, half double, double and triple crochet stitches. Here's my first, a flower!

With that set of stitches... you can literally make ANYTHING. The only time i've needed to do a stitch any larger than a treble crochet is when you're making doilies with thread...

Good luck with your crocheting... and your little flower looks awesome!

Great Job!

I love making flowers! There are so many different ways to use them!

Dishcloths work up real fast in crochet too! Grab some cotton and go! I do them sometimes with a different stitch on every row. It's great practice. (works for scarves too!)

Thanks for sharing!

well done! It's so even! My first crochet attempt was awful and lopsided. LOL You should be very proud of yourself!

Great job! My first crochet attempt (before I started knitting) was just to do a simple chain and when I was done it was supposed to be like 6 inches long or something like that and mine was 1.5 inches long. I was so frustrated I took on knitting instead. Maybe now that I understand yarn and needles a little more I should give it a go. I love the flower! The yarn is pretty too! Way to go!

Sara (wildforyarn), I definitely think that having knitting under my belt already gives me a good head start on understanding crochet. You should give it another try!

Hi Knit Queen,

That looks good! But I have a question for you. Did that crochet kit really help? Or did you already know some of it?

Susan
