Alisha here, I wanted to showcase my VERY first creation. A little late I guess since we are also in the middle of my first free pattern but I was in a blogging mood and decided to show it off 🙂
As you can see it is very similar to my mother’s Squirts … and I would say it is part of the Squirt family, albeit a little part! Like I said this is my very first complete crochet creation! I have tried in the past to do scarves and clothes but they ended in disaster! Until this cutie.
Mom showed me how to do the magic circle, which I did. Again, and again until I finally got it right. Then I started on the little squid. She told me how to go about it and as I started I thought the smaller the better right? I mean it would be easier if I didn’t have to do a lot … not really! The smaller the project the harder it is to see those little stitches! I did finish and as you can see below I even added a little flower as a sort of hat for my cutie. Afterall, Squirts aren’t squirts without their accessories!
(Don’t mind my dirty fingernails! Oh my I was gardening Saturday and just can’t seem to get them clean! So embarrassing…)
I found this awesome tutorial on youtube … which is really my best friend right now … I almost followed this one completely but may have made a slight change or two. Check it out below, and be sure to go over and subscribe to the creator they did a great job with this one!
