If you asked me to sum up 2015 in one craft it would be crochet, without a shadow of a doubt. I spent the year working on the crochet granny square basics I learnt in 2014 and my knitting needles definitely took a back seat. You could even say I was hooked… (sorry!).
Over the course of the year I made several gifts and several things for me and the home, and in all honesty surprised myself by actually managing to complete them. Various YouTube videos and tutorials came to the rescue at times but as you can see in the crochet phone case post - by the end of the year I was able to write my own (very simple) pattern! Blog reading and writing is completely to thank for giving me the confidence to keep making things and start coming up with patterns. And for this I’m immensely grateful.
Anyway before you have to pass me the tissues, here’s the round-up of my favourite crochet makes from 2015, in no particular order…
As ever my projects list is never ending, whose isn’t? But unless I get distracted in between (which is entirely possible) my first two planed makes will be another mandala using the pattern from Mollie Makes issue 54 in colours to match our living room and a colourful blanket for the craft room. Although I can’t decide exactly what kind of blanket yet granny, harlequin, ripple - there are so many to choose from!
