Although I’ve always been a knitter I’d never been able to master crochet. Something about that lone hook flailing around it didn’t seem ‘tidy’ like knitting. More recently I attempted ‘granny squares’ but I’ve never been able to follow a pattern. When lockdown came along I was determined to master some new skills so crochet was one of the first. Thanks to YouTube for teaching us just about everything. I followed some basic crochet instructions and then tackled this shawl in the video. I may be obsessed with shawls now. I’m on my fifth. The first four are pictured above.
