I remember my mum teaching how to crochet years ago when I was still in primary school. It was such a grandmotherly thing to do, but I remember creating square after square with the goal of creating an afghan style blanket. This of course never eventuated and I just stopped crocheting for a while, but 3 years ago I saw a pattern that changed everything.
This is the pattern that totally changed my outlook on crocheting and eventually knitting. It was slow and painful but eventually I picked up all the lingo again, learnt how to read Japanese charts and embraced the awesomeness that is chart symbols.
I created this Amineko as a birthday present for a friend, she promptly posed it next to my Kidnapper and proceeded to abuse him for a while, I’m sure our co-workers were a little non-plussed as to what the heck we were doing.
This is without a doubt probably one of the best patterns you could use to learn crochet with, the pattern is clear and very well explained and the result is just adorable!
