If you remember last week, my first few attempts at the granny “square” turned out to be more of a granny “trapezoid”.
When I asked the great google why my square turned into a trapezoid, the first article that popped up was ‘Five Common Crochet Mistakes and Tips for Beginners’. PERFECT. Not only did it answer why my shape was mixed up, it also helped me with 4 other problems I didn’t even realize I had! For each problem she gave a few suggestions on what you may be doing wrong, and gave you a few suggestions that might fix it! I found that adding too many stitches, and having my stitches go from being too loose to too tight, were my two main problems- and they were both addressed in this article.

Ladies & gentlemen, thanks to the wonderful crafting website ‘Felt Magnet,’ I am proud to show you my first, successful granny square!
WOO! I must say that having something to do while I binge watch Netflix makes the hours spent on the couch seem much more productive.
My next goal is to learn how to read a pattern, and use this to crochet something other than a square!
If any of you have any ideas on a simple item I could try, leave a comment- I am looking for ideas!
