When I posted on Ravelry and said it’s been about half a century since I did any crochet . . I really felt old but it’s true. I learned in high school. Then I did do a couple of the crocheted names but I think that’s called “filet crochet” but it’s still basically crochet.
There’s an ESK badge for crocheting a project and one for felting a project. I have no interest in either but this year, we’re having to work for those badges so I figured I can’t rule anything out. I must try to get all the badges I can get.
I found a pattern for a crocheted badge – College Tote. It’s crocheted and felted . . two badges/one project. I always think I can do more than I can really do but I was thinking . . Addie’s unicorn sweater is yarn that will felt. I could always take the leftovers and make her a tote bag to match her sweater. . . a project for a later date.
How hard can crochet be? I did it once . . I can do it again. I grabbed some Cascade 220 yarn, which I know will felt.
Did the 55 stitch chain. Piece of cake. I’ve done chain stitches for various things through the years. Next, single crochet. I remembered how to do that . . I thought.
After 6 stitches, I thought . . there’s no way I’m going to get 55 stitches on this little shaft. Youtube to the rescue. Now I am doing it correctly!
