What are you most proud of? As a self-taught knitter, I've tried numerous times to teach myself crochet to no avail. I couldn't grasp the chain stitch until now. It took a long time but I'm glad I tried crochet again. What advice would you give someone starting this project? If you make a mistake or don't understand the stitch, take a break to process the technique you're learning. And if you make a mistake, just breathe and try to figure out what went wrong with your project. Most importantly, all is not lost. We learn from our mistakes.
