Step 9: First Stitch 2

I did it. sort of.
<p>Congratulations! That looks amazing, nice straight edges and everything :)</p>
<p>I did it. I made a single crochet square. Thanks Barbara</p>
Thanks for sharing this.<br><br>My mother (1915-2004) wove 17 blanquets / bedspreads using this technique. Many of then (maybe all) are sill in use. They are multicolored, beautiful. <br><br>She bought bargains of wool, and even unwove old clothes to take advantage of the wool.
That's great! Especially since wool yarn is so expensive, I have to get the cheaper yarn usually.<br>I've crocheted an afghan this way too!
I will try this--I've wanted to learn to crochet but with so many other awesome things to learn this keeps getting pushed back. Thanks for posting!
Looks good! Lots of clear photos. :D I will have to give this a try!
