Wooohoooo my first “Chains” posting.
I’m teaching myself to crochet..again. I learnt some basics as a teenagers but then didn’t pursue. Another of my deep regrets as by now I’d be churning out sophisticated designs.
Anyhoooo mustn’t linger on regrets.
One of my first projects is the diamond potholder. I got the pattern from Ravelry.com which is an excellent free site for knitters and crocheters. Here is my progress so far, about 11 inches across. It’s not square which I put down to changing tension as I get more confident. But that’s ok. It’s also going to be larger than the pattern suggest as we want to use it two handed. I’m using a cheap 100% cotton wool in lovely shades orange which I got from Lidl. The wool is 8 strand so the crocheting is taking some time but it’s relaxing so I don’t mind.
