  • First attempt at amigurumi

    Crochet is not my choice of craft (that's bookbinding/book making/paper making), but having learned how to crochet between Boxing Day and New Year, I thought I'd try my hand at something other than a granny square.

    Here is my first attempt at making an amigurumi rabbit. I may consider, once I have developed my own pattern, at making them as a side line.

    As it was just for fun, there are a few mistakes, but overall I am pleased for a first try at following a pattern.

      Thank you.

      I've surprised myself with the speed at which I've picked it up. It just makes sense! I had expected crochet to be much harder than knitting, but it's so much easier (for me).

      Practising even more this afternoon...

                  That is a really cute bunny. Well Done!!
                  It is great that you have managed to get the hang of crochet so quickly, I also find it easier than knitting. I think the main problem with learning to knit or crochet is not the actual stitches but holding the yarn at the right tension. Once you get that right it is plain sailing.

                      Thank you for the kind comments. I think I've found something I'm good at.

                      ...holding the yarn at the right tension
                      Absolutely! With practice the tensioning is easier to get right.

                      My top tip to anyone wanting to learn is: make a BIG granny square! They are very easy you will soon be zooming along. After that, it's easy.

                      The hardest part is remembering to convert between US and UK terminology.
