Crochet : Practice log – Granny Stitches

Hellos! I’m back for another post on crochet! My daily practice log has full filling with projects and I’m so motivated to do bit by bit of practice everyday.

What I feel fun about doing crochet is I can learn to plan at the same time and practice on different stitches, while doing projects.

Because I’m not a well planned person and I always half done person. But this time round I’m so into it and I will push myself to keep finish up my projects goals for this year.

Let’s talk about Granny stitches. I refer to the video in craftsy which I always used the site and I find it very useful and it’s really helps me a lot.

So, I did my very first granny stitch in rows. Mainly there are two type, in rows and squares. I can say it’s fun to do and I really like granny stitches, is good to use for clothes like vest, or maybe a sofa cover or even a blanket if you like.

There is no difficulty in doing these stitches as long you know the basics, you can move on to this step. And you will find it a lot easier to do.

Give it a try and feel free to share with me your experiences in doing crochet!

Happy Reading

Crochet headband for beginner

Hello! Good day! Here is another post that I’ve done crochet a headband. This project is for Totally for beginners! And of course to complete learning all the basic first, in order to know how to do this with follow along video. Is not that hard actually. Compare to the first time I do this without any knowledge and just follow blindly is totally different.

I getting more and more inspired and keep look out for project to do it by myself. You can find a group of friends who is interested and get along to create projects and have fun!

For this headband, I finally get the correct type of yarn and hook size.

Tips: For thicker yarn, Can use a bigger size hook. So the product will turn out nicer without gap. For thin yarn, to use a smaller size hook. but the size of the hook can’t be too much different from the yarn info tab.

if you are interested in making this headband, do check out craftsy website to follow along with video. You may choose to purchase the video or join them as member to get video access.

Have a great day and Happy crochet-ing!

The sharing of yarns..

So, currently I’m back on doing crochet, so I went to get yarns.. MORE yarns! 😆. I found this yarn, is wool mix with something else. I love the colors too!

Another type of yarn that I love the most is the baby alpaca yarn! It’s super soft and it’s great for making wearable project like headband, scarf or even beanie!

So recently I’m practicing the basic stitches from slip knot, single, double, treble, half double crochet and also decreases and increases. Once you have master all these stitches you can do any thing that is beginner.

Have some fun and search some project to do with crochet while you got nothing to deal with. It’s really good for life skills if you want to find something or a hobby.

Happy crochet-ing!

The feeling and now is totally different. I feel I can crochet on my own now with videos tutorial. If you love crochet, you should try, learn all the basic first include like holding your hook and all, especially for people who love crochet and they just started without any knowledge.

Tips:

  • Take your time and watch some tutorial videos and follow along.
