In October of 2012 I decided I’d see if I could teach myself how to crochet. This was completely on a whim, I simply bought myself a 4mm crochet hook and a cheap ball of wool.
After a little googling, I settled down with a few YouTube videos. I learned, over the next few hours, how to create a chain, single crochet and double crochet (US terms).
Over the next few weeks I learned more complicated stitches; began making crocheted flowers; started a scarf, and discovered amigurumi.
