Since learning how to do the basics of crochet, I have put them to practice using both written instruction and diagrams. Firstly, I decided to make the Sunflower Amigurumi that began my quest but unfortunately it required half triple crochet which I haven’t learnt yet. Instead, I decided to make flowers using a pattern that my friend gave me and one from a free pamphlet. The only problem was having to convert the US terminology into AUS/UK terminology which I forgot quite a few times and ended up with something that didn’t look anything like the picture!
These patterns were really enjoyable (once I got over the terminology) and I found them quick and easy to complete. They have built my confidence and now I am ready to make the sunflower – once I have tried out half triple crochet!
