A journal of looming projects weaving throughout a thread of spirituality, art, and creativity.

Well, here it is. My first attempt at crocheting. It's supposed to be the strap for the beach towel back pack pattern in the Knifty Knitter I instruction booklet. I used a size H/8-5.00MM crochet hook and crocheted a chain of 100 stitches and then did a double crochet stitch down and around the end and back up the back side of the chain. I believe I pulled the tension on the chain too tight. It should be around 25", but it turned out to be 14". Oh well, it was my first try. The yarn is Peaches and Cream 4 ply worsted weight 100% cotton.
