This often makes me realise just how far I've come on this crochet journey, with thoughts like "two years ago I certainly couldn't have done this" going through my head.
I'm here to tell you that anything is possible if you are 1) willing to learn and 2) put that learning into practice.
This time last year I was learning how to do mosaic crochet, a completely new skill for me and I remember the charts looked scarily complex! However, I started on row 1 and followed the instructions to create a gorgeous blanket (pictured above) which I'm so proud of!
Next on my list of things to learn is tapestry crochet! I know it's similar to mosaic crochet but that colour changes happen mid row, maybe even twice mid row (eeek!).
My To The Park Cardigan (released this week and pictured above) is an intermediate level crochet pattern but there are possibly new skills for you to try;
- A crocheted cable goes down the back and two cables go down either side of the front opening.
- The ties are crocheted I-cord.
- There are foundation crochet stitches used when splitting for the sleeves.
This pattern is available on my website and on Ravelry and there's currently a 10% off early bird offer! Use the code CARDILOVE at the checkout to receive your discount.
Until next time, happy crocheting,
