My latest interest in crochet has really blossomed over the last two weeks - I've subscribed to The Art of Crochet, a partwork collection of 120 magazines / instructions with balls of wool, sent out in installments, and the idea is to learn stitches each week and end up making a completed crocheted throw.
I've made some squares from this collection, and have just received parts 7, 8, 9 and 10 in the post today, so can get on with some more; I'll probably stop after these though, as it will be very expensive, and I think I'd be able to learn more without having to complete this collection, even though the throw looks very nice!
Here are some samples I've made so far, using some instructions and photographs from a great book: 'Compendium of Crochet Techniques' by Jan Eaton:
|Sample: classic mesh with picot edging|
|Sample: narrow shaped edging|
|Double crochet with shell border|
|Scallop lace square|
Let me know what you think, do you like doing crochet?
