Thanks for stopping by my blog!
I am so glad that you are learning to crochet!
With every new stitch you learn you will also learn to love the art of crocheting. So I encourage you to keep on practicing!
Here is the pattern for the CIRCLE in
TEACHING KIDS TO CROCHET Lesson 6
How to crochet a circle
yarn in a fun color (kids don't like boring yarn!)
I prefer acrylic
Here are the sizes of the circles you can create just by changing your hook:
H/5.00mm= 2 1/4inches
I/5.5mm = 2.5 inches
J/6.0mm 2 3/4 inches
K/6.5mm = 3 inches
I pulled my circles a bit to loosing them up. It helps them lay flatter and be truer to the sizes above.
ALL TECHNIQUES CAN BE VIEWED AT MY YOU TUBE CHANNEL. CASTING ON YOUR YARN AND YARNING OVER AS WELL.
