I wish I could crochet…

Posted on: April 27, 2011

Some people wish they could knit, I pine to be able to crochet…I crocheted a pram cover for my 5th grade teacher’s new baby when I was about 10 years old.  It turned out a bit crooked but to this day, he still remembers it.  His daughter is now in her 20s (!). 

If I could crochet, here’s what I would make:

Mother's Day Bag and Shawl Knit Eyelet Shawl
Knit Eyelet Shawl
Simple Crochet Shrug
Crochet Mother’s Day Bag and
Crochet Mother’s Day Shawl (with alternate color)
Simple Crochet Shrug

Maybe I should try my hand at it again.  Do any of you crocheters out there have any tips?

Count, count, count (which you probably already know from knitting), and try to keep your tension on the yarn steady so your stitches won’t be uneven. I’ve learned a number of new stitches from youtube videos. I love to crochet… I wish I could knit! I probably could learn that from youtube videos as well, but hey… one thing at a time.

Even though I knit, I find that YouTube has a ton of new techniques that I can easily pick up. How odd, there are so few people that seems to both knit and crochet…Your crocheted items are gorgeous Miriam! 🙂
