I had always thought crocheting was too complicated and difficult to do, and that it would be one of those things I admire, but is beyond my abilities to do. Then I saw a crocheted blanket on Pinterest that I absolutely had to know how to do (read about that here). So I followed a YouTube video and discovered that crochet is actually super easy and just makes so much sense to my brain.
Ever since then I have been fascinated by the way people can combine a few different stitches in a variety of different ways to make the most amazing patterns! And as I gained more experience with different crochet projects my confidence grew and an idea started brewing - I wanted to be one of those people, I wanted to attempt my own crochet design.
And here is the result - taaahhh-daaahhhh!
I tried a few different designs until I found the one that really made my heart sing! I'm so thrilled with how it turned out and very excited to share my pattern with you.
I've crocheted the above 2 squares with the really-lovely-to-work-with Nuturing Fibres Eco-Fusion yarn, using a size 3.5mm hook, in the colours Cornflower, Vanilla and Orchid (how pretty do those names sound for an Enchanted Garden square!!!). And the square below was made using Scheepjes Colour Crafter yarn, using a 4mm hook, in the colours Meppel, Dordrecht and Eelde. Both yarns can be purchased from BeInspired.
