Following on from last night’s crochet lesson I decided to find a video tutorial for a flower and this is my result.
To say that i’m pleased with myself is a bit of an understatement. However this is nothing in comparison to this piece I just found of my Nan’s work. Mine is worked in DK yarn whereas hers is in fine crochet cotton.
It was made at least 40 years ago and must have taken her many hours to complete with all those tiny stitches. I remember though she used to make table mats with string so she was very versatile in her work. Funnily enough I don't remember seeing her use a pattern for anything, I suppose so many years experience gave the the confidence and knowledge to work it out for herself.
