After a couple of weeks of furious hooking, I have finished my very first crochet project. In my earliest days, there was some question as to whether or not I was doing it wrong, but I am fairly certain that I have now successfully figured out how to crochet a flower (or 12). However, I am far less confident in my flower connecting skills. I read the pattern and instructions about 37 times, but I still have no idea how to do it. So, after trying and failing to follow the real directions, I just made something up. I guess time will tell if those stitches will stand the test of riding the NYC subway system.
Doesn’t it look great? I mean, I’m totally going to wear it in public and everything!
