Project Description

What are you most proud of? I love the salmon/orange wool, I had in my stash. What advice would you give someone starting this project? The first few were slow to make, but after a few... I raced through and finished it in no time... Very happy with the finished pillow cases.

What you will need

  • Patons Romance 8ply Merino Rich Cashmere

I love roses and squares also, I've always wanted to learn how to make perfect squares and learn how to make roses. Please send me the pattern so that I can learn how to do both.

http://appleblossomdreams.blogspot.com.au/2012/03/cal-granny-rose-week-2-of-5.html This link is a free tutorial step by step instruction on how to make the granny rose with color pictures to follow as well, I too am a novice at crochet and yet I found this form of learning very easy, she even has a you tube link to one of her complicated steps you can visually follow, as to my changing color I do not tie a note, I just twist the loops together like I am about to tie a shoe lace and then I thread through a couple of times back and forth until secure through my work without it showing on the right side this way you dont have that lump of a knot... I hope this was clear!
