My Little Crochet Brooches

Saturday 26 January 2013

My new craft for 2013, crochet!

In 10 minutes I made this cute brooch..

People always said that crochet was easy and as a knitter, I thought I would get it whirl and boy it i easy. I would describe crochet as half way between knitting and lace making. You only have a hook not two and make your stitches by looping and passing through your hook. It seems to grow faster than knitting and is more 3D in my opinion.
I am no expert but this little crochet brooch took me ten minutes to use using three easy stitches, chain, slip and half treble . My knowledge of patterns is very basic but this is only week one.
Here are a few links to help you get started...
