Do you crochet?

At what age did you learn to crochet? Who taught you?

Do you have a favorite crochet pattern?

Have you taught anyone to crochet?

Is there any techniques you hope to try?

Happy Crocheting!!!

Do you crochet? Yes

At what age did you learn to crochet? Who taught you? I learned over many years. My grandmother taught me to chain stitch; my best friend of the time taught me to do a treble (I hadn't yet learned single or double). I picked some up from books. I made some of it up as I went along.

Do you have a favorite crochet pattern? I don't believe in favorites, but I really like the hat I made up (converted a knitting pattern).

Have you taught anyone to crochet? Tried to teach my daughter, but she doesn't listen to anybody. "This is how *I* do it!" I have a friend who wants to learn to make pineapple doilies, but there's always a reason (large family) for her not to show up.

Is there any techniques you hope to try? Tapestry. Or Irish Lace.

Happy Crocheting!!! Thanks.

Agree that March is for crocheting decently! I do not crotchet, but my mom do that! Though we are in a very warm season, but she still decided to crotchet a scarf for me in advance for next winter. I love wearing sweaters or scarfs that niddled or crotcheted by mom with her love, it's so warm to wear them in fact. :)

I think that is great that you were able to convert a hat pattern from knit to crochet. I have picked things up here and there over many years as well. Tapestry or Irish Lace would be amazing to learn!

It seems that crocheting is more difficult than kniting. The firfst time I crocheted is the year before last. I crocheted a scarf and regarded it as a birthday gift for my friend. she really loves my gift for the style is very unique. Thank you for the seller who sold me the wool and taught me the way of crocheting!!! Recently I sometimes go to the learning centre in pandahall to learn how to make crafts. It seems that making crafts is easier!!
