    Crochet is the way forward. Granny Squares are so versatile. My crochet style is a little odd as I hold the hook as if a knitting needle. It works. I’ve even tried crochet work with fine wire. Must get the hook out again. Love the colours in the blanket

    I love crochet in all its forms and its always nice to try new stitches and revive old styles too like broomstick lace crochet, so called because the yarn used to be be wrapped around a broomstick to create the large loops. These days we use a really big knitting needle or a piece of plastic pipe. My scarf you have featured is made from broomstick lace crochet.

    I love making necklaces and bracelets incorporating crochet and knitting. I use fine wire for this and have been pleased how effective a piece of jewellery they make

    I also love using crochet to do jewellery as it’s so quick. I taught myself from a book last year and I have done some small items using crochet but because I am quicker at knitting I tend to use this for big items

    yes I have recently taken up crochet again and am enjoying making hats and toys mostly. I am not very adventurous but my efforts do get admired and it gives me lots of pleasure too!
    I first tried crochet when my daughter was 2 yrs old ( she’s 43 now) and I made two little dresses for her which I was very prouf of. Haven’t made a dress since though!
