Crochet Conumdrum...

You know what.. after all these years of crocheting by learning from my mum visually, it has just dawned on me that I am now utterly confused!!
WHY? You might ask, if I've been creating things for  ha-hum decades.... well, in trying to write  little tutorials to help others have a play, I started doing a bit of research, and bought a couple of contemporary funky books to help me format my patterns. And then it struck me!
I had to keep double-checking what I was reading, eventually realising that 2 books called the same stitch different names... how did that happen? And now I am struggling to make sure that what I write is accurate. Why on earth would one stitch have 2 names- the second being the same as a completely different stitch!
I'm going to have to go on a marathon fact finding mission to get this sorted out... for my peace of mind as much as anything...
I'll keep you posted, but in the meantime I will add instructions for the way I've done each stitch since I was a kid so that my patterns work correctly for you all. 


  1. I don't have a problem with following your instructions. :) You gave me an idea how to decorate and paint my crocheted flowers. It's interesting how a simple idea can be a "why didn't I think of that?" moment. lol!

  2. OK I give up, I don't work,well not a proper job anyway, I don't study so no excuse there, so why is it I cannot find time to create? you and Sonja put me to shame.

  3. Aha- you have the same problem my parents have now they've retired! The aim was to relax and use all the extra time to do things they wanted, but they always seem to be doing stuff they need to, rather than want to... create yourself a part-time job in your studio! Then you have no excuse not to get some fun done! xxx


Sorry to add the verification box- I hate them so... but I've been getting alot of spam messages lately! Hopefully I'll be able to remove it in a while.xx
