My first ever Crochet Flower

OK, so spending half my life on Instagram makes me very jealous of all the lovely people who crochet !

SO, I decided to bite the bullet one morning and give it a go !

It was pretty stressful at first, I couldn't even hold the hook and yarn properly. I watched numerous videos and this one seemed to help me the most with just getting started.

Then I spotted this gorgeous video on how to make a little flower ! I must have paused and rewound a million times, I even wrote down the instructions for each bit (in my own language I must add)

I must learn the correct crochet terminology.

Anyway, so it eventually worked !! I am super happy with my little flower and now raring to go and make granny squares, a blanket, mittens a scarf oooh you name it...

So, if like me, you have been oohing and ahhing over all the prettiness, give it a go !

Be determined and you'll do it, and any pros out there, please do share your favourite books / videos and any tips - thank you !! x


  1. When I retaught myself to crochet a couple of years ago, I did so to use up the yarn I'd had languishing around for years....I thought I could make some little flowers to bust my stash & clear out a drawer....hahaha....then I was hooked....needless to say, my yarn stash has not been busted....I hope you enjoy it & become as addicted as I did with little flowers �� -xx-

    1. Ah haha x thank you sooo much!! I need to buy more yarn then ill be away! X
