From Crochet to Collectables and other Interests
Has it only got three corners or started out with four and lost one on the way? Anyway whatever you've done it's a lovely colour - cant you put it on one of the chickens heads and take a picture .. it would look adorable ..
“cockerels may crow but it's the hen that lays the egg."
Aww you are so diplomatic, I think plot and corner has been lost
It started out with 4 lovely corners - but lost them all in round 3.
I know!! But I don't know how I went wrong. I did what they said ( I think!!!)
Join yarn (new colour) 1ch, 1 dc into same place (easy), 1dc into each tr and 1 ch sp of previoius round. I have highlighted the only bit I could have gone wrong in. Wheere it says INTO each treble - I did it sort of between each treble not actually into it. How do you go INTO a treble?
If someone has a clue and can let me know, am going to try again either tonight or tomorrow night, and then if it goes wrong again I will be begging for more help!
Have just tried again, gone wrong and undone it, and am trying again and can just see it all going wrong as I am crocheting. I am really about to lose the enthusiasm to do this anymore.
I am sure trying to do it from a book is difficult.
My mother taught me to knit and crochet, I taught mine, girls and the boys.
To help me read a pattern and do fancy stitches I went to an evening class. May be worth thinking about if you really want to get into crochet
I think you are right Wendy. I need someone with the patience of a saint to watch me and show me what I am doing wrong.
You maybe giving more advice Wendy, my mrs bought some crotchet paraphanalia today, she recons her mam showed when she was a a young girl, I,ve been married to her for 32 years and this is the first time I have heard this, i,ve certainly never seen her knit or do anything "crafty". She going to practice tonight, should be intersting.
Dont ever grow up, its a trap
Ok, so my daughter came round for supper and I showed her the hamster hat with ear flaps. I also got an order from my grandson for another so they can be made into ear muffs (Not that I would ever be able to make one the same again!)
Anyway, in under an hour she had produced what I have been trying to make for days. The photo shows it, with my hamster hat on a 'Wallace' salt pot, and my latest reworked attempt.
I have decided I need a brain transplant.
That is very generous of you!
I think maybe I need a day or two's break, before I attempt it again!
And then another day or two before I chuck my crochet hooks into the pond.
