Every crocheters start their crochet journey with mistakes and a little. when I hold a crochet hook for first time, I was 9 years old. It was belonging to my aunt who was always crocheting. I wanted to try, wanted to crochet and make wonderful creative work from yarn. She wanted to teach me too. But there was a problem, I used my left handed but she was right handed crocheter despite the difference between us we started. As a beginner holding hand for crochet and finger wrapping are one of the difficult parts in crocheting me. But if you keep practicing with little patience, while you are crocheting chain stitch first time it wouldn’t be difficult anymore. I don’t remember I was getting tired when I learning crochet. After a couple of days, she taught me double crochet stitch. By the way I recommended you, If you are a new to crochet, good to start with single crochet stitch first, after the chain stitch. Then can be learned and practice half double crochet (hdc), double crochet (DC), treble crochet (tr) and other crochet stitches. Doing some dc rows for 2-3 weeks, I made my first piece of crochet really little dress, tiny hat and one bootie. These wonderful works are already have been keeping safety in my crochet box. I think they are not worthless things to throw away. When I saw them, I can remember and it takes me to a past which I was learning crochet.
This is a collection of my work as a total beginner.
I have used my aunt’s 1.25 mm crochet hook and treads for this. You may ask me what is this ? This is full of mess…… yes, this is full of mess of course, As I told you earlier, every crocheter starts to crochet with mistakes and a little but you know after I finish this , how it was feeling me ? I was very very happy.
This is my first hat. I wanted to make a little hat for my small doll. I learned from this, how to crochet in the round.
My stitches were very tightly because I used a 1.25 mm crochet hook, so don’t use like this crochet hook, if you crochet in first time. Choose a 3, 4 or 5 mm crochet hook.
Then I got yarns and 3.25 mm crochet hook. Now I have to own stuff to start crocheting something real size. With my aunt’s help, I made a doll sized dress and hat for my favorite doll. After I finished the hat and dress for my doll then I felt I’am a really crocheter . It had a good finish, perfect size and my stitches were better than others.
In the end I want to thank my aunt for taught me to crochet.
