I then headed home to tackle one of the adorable Amy Gaines Cupcake Crochet patterns.
I must of started and unpulled my efforts what seemed like a thousand times, only to decide in the end, to just keep going with it . It didn't seem to look like the pattern. And then it worked (well good enough for this beginner). I had begun by using the dark coloured yarn but was finding it too difficult to see any pattern forming or the holes I was meant to crochet in.
I am very excited with the beginnings of my cupcake. These are just a few tips from my own experience.
- Before I started I practised a single crochet stitch from this You Tube tutorial to get the hang of it.
- I found it easier to use a lighter coloured yarn to start with. Will now try darker yarn as I am a little more confident.
- You need to crochet quite a few rounds before a pattern starts to form. It still didn't seem to look like the pattern - until I turned it inside out (who would of thought!!!)
