learning crochet

While I know how to knit, it tends to put me to sleep – literally.  and there are things one can do with crochet that you can’t do with knitting, and vice versa. 

Recently One of the Yarn companies had posted a free pattern for a crocheted tote.  Offered as a full kit for $$$ or a free pattern.  Even though I did not have the right weight yarn, or the right size hook, forged ahead anyway.

IMG_1784 instead of being sort of like a market tote, per the pattern, it ended up more as a bucket tote.  Messed up on the handles though as I did the chain too loose for the tightness of the stitch and they ended up a little funky.  Usually I’m too tight on the starting chain, guess I overcompensated!!

IMG_1785 Still a nice size, and with the big handles it can be a sort of back pack when on the Trike.  and it will certainly hold a lot!  All in all, not bad for a first official project!
