Latest Obsession: Crocheting!

6 Jan

I recently picked up new obsession… crocheting! I’ve always wanted to learn but I keep putting it off, thinking it was more complicated than it really is. Granted, I’ve only mastered one stitch, haha, so it’s still too soon to tell.

Check this out! I totally “cheated” and got extra chunky yarn and a super thick crochet needle to speed up the process! Maybe someday, I’ll try out the smaller crochet needles and see a different result! But for now, I think this is the perfect weekend project to work on while watching a movie! This completed crochet measures approx. 12 inches and I started with 46 chains using a 19 mm needle (which is the biggest one they sell at Michaels). In hindsight, I should have probably used a 10mm needle…maybe for the next project!

Click the image below to see the youtube video I used as a resource! I’m more of a visual learner, so reading instructions about crochet stitches were not helpful. I went the route of watching videos to learn and it was super easy breezy!

What do you guys think? Was there something that you wish someone told you when you first learned to crochet?
