Best beginners Crochet ever!

For a few days I’ve been away (so I hope you had a great St. Patrick’s day) and it’s because I wanted to learn how to Crochet but more specifically Granny Square Crochet! I searched all over YouTube kinda and found an easy, simple and UNDERSTANDING how to! For days I’ve been trying and failing and trying again, now I finally got it and I want you to watch and learn because you’re going to be so pleased with yourself but you do need a lot of patience and perseverance!

So here's the first fail. When it did't look right or I forgot what went where I just unravelled it and started again. Annyoing but uno what they say!

And a little FYI, you go though the center NOT though the chains but you’ll get what I’m saying when you watch the video…just incase you’re stuck!*

So with enough tries I finally done 1/4 of my GSC flower. I was quiet pleased but now I gotta remember how I done it in the First place (lol).

Getting there slowly but surely although I didn't have a big needle to make my ends neat but pratice and prep.

Ta Da! My first of many as I want to Crochet my Granny a throw for her favourite arm chair for mothers day...my mum doesn't really want one as she's sooooo high fashion (lol) so I'd likely make or bake her something (as the same for my aunty).

So I hope my recommendation was the right one and I hope you have a great and relaxing time (once you passed all the stressful and “I’m going to burn the wool!” stages).

Happy Crocheting!
