Tatting Tuesday - Crocheted Granny Squares
Since the crochet pattern I attempted first was too hard, I have taken up granny squares as a simpler pattern to learn the art of crochet. My first attempt:
First Granny Square - half my work
After I tried to get one started several times, this granny square was started by my wife Susan and I finished it. She said that crocheting into the first few stitches was the hardest (and, of course, she was right). The next one, I did from start to finish myself:
Second Granny Square - all mine
The most obvious problem is that I am still crocheting too tight. There is barely any room to see the pattern that was clear in the first one. And, of course, it makes it much harder to make a stitch when you can barely pull the yarn back through the loops. More practice! That's what I need. Larry
