C for Crochet A to Z challenge

I have found recently there has been a lot of interest in Learning how to crochet. My Workshops have been full of people eager to learn and make wonderful creations. There are a variety of patterns and magazines to buy, but for me the main skill to get right is the tension on the wool. Holding the hook will depend on you and how comfortable you are. once mastered crochet is a pick up and down craft that can be done anywhere. I Love It, everyone should have a crochet blanket.

Ch1 and Join the last stitch to the beginning of the round in top of the first ch3. You should have 12 clusters now.

 

Repeat the rounds, increasing the number of clusters on each side as you go, until your square is the size you want. When you’re finished, snip the yarn, leaving several inches so that you can pull it tightly through the loop and weave the rest into the square to hide it and prevent unravelling.
