Back many years ago, when in high school, I learned to crochet. How times have changed, huh? Several of us would bring our crochet projects to lunch, hurry up and eat and then sit and crochet. About all I could do was single and double crochet and that’s still about all I think I know how to do but this morning, while looking for something else on Ravelry, I came across Vicky Chan’s designs, and I do believe I’m going to have to try some of these. She suggests a cotton fingering weight for both of these, which would be so much cooler than most wools, and would probably be real nice for our extreme heat.
The first one that caught my eye is Jamie. Isn’t it gorgeous? I wonder if it’s hard to make.
The second one that I love, probably even more, is Ada.
Are any of you do both crochet and knit? If so, is crocheting a design such as this harder than knitting? If all I know how to do are single and double crochet stitches, can I do these? I don’t mind looking up instructions . . and I don’t think crochet is any harder than knitting . . I guess my question for myself is: Can I teach this old dog a new trick? 🙂
