I've been wanting to learn how to crochet for...like...ever. So when
Rachel from: Maybe Matilda hosted a crochet along I was like,
I'm sure you already saw my sad attempt at the "should have been
square but wasn't" dishcloth. That's what happened when I tried to
teach myself....ironically I did the same thing with cowl #1. I thought
to myself, "self, you've already mastered the single, half double, and
double crochet stitches I'm sure you can skip ahead and figure out
how to read that cowl pattern." Yup, that's what I said to myself.
You know what, I lied to my poor self because, while it wasn't an epic failure
(it still looks okay) it sure wasn't right! I found out quickly that crochet
patterns are written (or may as well be written) in ancient Hebrew!
So thank you Rachel for your awesome dissection of that pattern. If you want
to know how to make a fish net just let me know (wink wink).
Here's me getting my poser on....don't laugh, all my smiley pictures
looked like poop!
