I taught myself to crochet from YouTube. Yes I actually did. Did you know that YouTube does in fact have useful educational videos? Who knew. I thought it was all cats and memes. Anyway I digress. Once I had taught myself the basics, which I won't lie, took many hours, swear words and re-starts, I found this pattern on line from an awesome blogger named Debi Y for her gorgeous Squircle.
Her pattern is so easy to follow (yes even for me) and these were my first attempts.
Once I had practiced a few, there was no stopping me and I became a little crochet obsessed. As my pile of squircles grew, I thought, what on earth am I going to do with all of these squares? I then had the outstanding idea of sewing them together to make a bag. I have a couple of pillow cases ready to line my gorgeous new bag and this is the current level I have reached. Work in progress. I will update (eventually) if and I when I finally get round to finishing it.
What do you think?
