My crochet progress, or not!

This crochet business has been proving a bit of a challenge, firstly I was over ambitious in my choice of pattern, it was for gorgeous hexagonal granny squares, if that’s the right term maybe granny hexagons is more correct.

Youtube search for a mixture of left handed crochet terms came up with some interesting videos, some helpful, some adding to my confusion, apparently a double crochet in the UK  is not the same as a double crochet in the USA.

Then I had an idea and downloaded a left handed crochet book to my Kindle, and found a  simple granny square, but somehow I’ve gone horribly wrong and I will have to start over again, this was something I had anticipated so I hadn’t cut the yarn.

On the positive side I have managed to hold the yarn in the proper fashion, but my tensioning could be better.

So this is my feeble attempt before I pulled it out.

My aim  for the next square is to get 12 d c in the first round and 24 in the next. Then 4 evenly spaced corners which would be a major improvement ha ha! More later.

  1. Looks pretty good to me Jill.
    I’ve never mastered crochet, I can knit and follow a knitting pattern but crochet has me completely baffled.
    Best of luck with your project, I’ll look forward to progress reports.

    Not looking too bad to me Jill. Try doing your Granny Square with just one colour so you are not faffing with changing wool and altering tension, crochet is a lot about tension and even spaces for rows and corners, I was going to post an update on my blog about this poncho I have been crocheting, I am not the fastest hooker in the book but I do enjoy crochet, I will show you a close up of the squares. x

    I am getting there eventually, my pile of squares is growing

  4. Well done for persevering, I’m sure the end product will be beautiful. I don’t get on with knitting and never tried crochet!
