Everyone who follows my Instagram knows my love for crochet, so I thought I’ll share it will all my blog readers as well. I’ve been crocheting from last 2 months (almost) and I absolutely adore it!
I learned it from Bella Coco’s tutorial videos. They are the best and she explains each and every step clearly and at an understandable pace. After the initial week or so, the crocheting movements started to come more naturally to me and there began my new and adventurous journey of crocheting. I think now I can make most of the things without even looking at the videos for long.
I absolutely loved it right from the moment I made my first little piece, a small pink rectangle of 6 by 12 chains.
Initially, I bought the wrong crochet hook of 1.1 mm (as I had no clue that I was supposed to take some particular number.) It was really thin and was an absolute pain in the ass, esp. in the low lights at night. So after about a week, when Vishal was sure I wasn’t going to give up on this “new hobby” of mine, he bought me a beautiful set from eBay (just like Bella Coco’s!)
This set has 12 crochets ranging from 2mm to 8mm crochets (including .5 of each one.) What’s really awesome is the colors of these crochet hooks. They are just beautiful! I really love ’em (thanks a lot, baby!)
3 months back my mother taught me knitting, but god knows why I just don’t like it as much as I love crocheting. So no knitting for me!
Here are a few of the crochet projects that I’ve made:
And here is what I’m presentle working on:
Apart from these, I’m also making a headband, sag beanie and slippers for Vishal, a beanie for my brother and a hopefully a cardigan and more hairbands for myself.
What about you? Do you like crocheting or are you a knitting person?
I’m sure everyone’s mothers and grandmothers might have made a lot of yarn-stuff and I’m all ears when it comes to stories and experiences. So please go ahead and share your experiences with me in the comments section below.
Have a great day everyone!
