I have just completed my first crochet cardigan, I’m not sure it was such a good idea to choose yarn online to match my handmade buttons, more about that later.
I love trying different crafts, and I don’t like to be beaten by something so I plod on until I master something. But crochet has always been my nemesis, it’s only taken me 50 years to master the basics, but I’ve gotten there in the end thanks to left handed videos on Youtube.
This is my first attempt at a cardigan, the tension gave me a few problems but dropping a hook size and making a smaller size seems to have worked out well as it actually fits perfectly.
It does sound a bit mad to buy yarn online to match my handmade ceramic buttons, but that’s what I did, but alas my gorgeous buttons, that I’m a bit in love with, are just a bit too green.
But first I have a ‘reusable bag’ challenge to think about, more about that later.
