I decided to make something for my dad which involves crochet charts, which I’ve never used before. Overall it’s not been as difficult as I thought it might be – it’s simply been a case of ensuring I check and understand what the chart shows before I stitch a row.
In modern society, we put an awful lot of pressure on ourselves. In this unusual time of pandemic and enforced lockdowns, your health is particularly important to look after and mindful crafting can do this wonderfully. So what exactly is it?
Just as there’s differing terms for yarn weight, the UK and US have different crochet stitch terms and it can get incredibly confusing – especially if it’s not clear from the pattern which terminology is being used.
