Welcome to Crochet Wednesday, y’all!
I spend most of my days avoiding housework. I know that sounds awful but I am 9 months pregnant and it has really been an interesting ride to say the least. The overwhelming heat has agitated my allergies and I avoid being outside between 10 am and 5 pm if I can. That is the joy of living in deep South Texas. We fry down here.
I picked up my crochet hooks determined to beat the rag rug conundrum but ufortunately I ran out of t-shirt yarn. The traditional granny square and I are not good friends at the moment and I am sure that pattern is constantly saying “Bless her heart” as I struggle to make the squares look tight and even.
Which led me to part ways with her momentarily and try crocheting in a circle instead. I scoured Pinterest for different patterns and instructions because I am still quite the beginner.
The best resource for me was the diagram that I listed in #1 and guess what it was so easy to read and understand.
Here are my first ever Crochet Circles:
I used a 5mm hook and some Super Saver white yarn. I really loved doing these circles and I think they would make a great blanket or throw. I also used the magic circle technique for these circles versus the regular way.
Here are some other great Circle Crochet Tutorials that can get you hooking in no time.
