Crochet: Sometimes you have to keep trying

Posted by on November 7, 2012 at 6:48 am.

I’m pleased that the scarf I’ve been crocheting is actually looking like it’s supposed to, yes I fixed my silly crochet mistakes.

I’m loving this crochet design!

 

In the above picture, I still had made a few errors, on the third row, but I’ve since corrected themΒ  and crocheted a few more rows. I’ll post pictures either later today, or sometime tomorrow. Sarah graciously extended the deadline for me, it’s due today, and I should be able to wrap it up once I arrive home from work today.

    I have sat here over and over trying to just do a simple chain. I totally want to just throw my hook and yarn down and give up…just like when I was a teen. But I keep hearing you and Teeni telling me to keep trying. And I keep looking at your projects, and it inspires me to keep trying. πŸ™‚

    Hi @DragonLady, I remember I struggled with a simple chain too, hang in there. I was ‘making’ one but the gauge was all wrong, it looked a hot mess. I’ve decided to include my mistakes here on my site, since it shows others that they aren’t the only one struggling. πŸ˜‰

    Thanks @Sarah Jane, I really appreciate your patience with me on this pattern test. I felt awful that I was having some issues. However your pictures, and instructions after it sunk it were helpful.

    @Opal, There is no need to feel bad, you are only quite new to crocheting and this is a quite challenging pattern. Having you able to test and willing to keep trying helps me to make my pattern much clearer πŸ™‚
