Well good morning! It seems very indulgent blogging to you on a Wednesday morning. Normally I fit my posts in around work: but not today – I have got a whole day off! A whole day to myself, to do exactly as I please: I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to it. I have a lot of lovely things planned and I thought that I would start the day with you! I have been crocheting hard over the past few days, to bring to you a flower for January. Last year I crocheted a Snowdrop (I saw my first Snowdrop yesterday), it still needs working on as I am still not truly happy with it, but that can wait. I have been working on crocheting Hellebores…
Do you like them? I am really pleased with how this worked out. Just in case you are, here is how to crochet on for yourself. Gather together lots of yarn, in Hellebore colours, I used mainly DK – but that is not really too important and a 4mm crochet hook…
NB stitches are written using UK terms, if you prefer American terms :
UK dc = sc
UK tr = dc
UK dtr = tr
Ooohh and a cluster is crocheted in a very similar way as decreasing: expect all of the stitches are worked onto the same stitch rather than across several.
Hope that makes sense – if not let me know!
