As I posted last time, I'm following the CAL on Moogly.com. The first square is called Tamara's Kismet Square. The wonderful designer is a great teacher for everyone.
Her name is Jessie and her website is www.Jessieathome.com. The square she designed is for Easy/Intermediate. What I love about Jessie is not only does she give you the pattern in clear detail, but you also can see pictures throughout the pattern and VIDEOS!!!!
The videos were awesome! When I reached Round 8 of the pattern I was having difficulty figuring out where I was suppose to put my stitches. Jessie to the rescue!!! Instead of me wasting time and undoing and redoing my round, she had a video to explain exactly what she meant in the pattern.
As I continued the pattern, I noticed that I didn't completely understand how to do Round 8 correctly. My count was completely off. Each side had a different number of stitches! That is a first for me. You can tell that my square doesn't lay flat. I am going to count this as my practice square. Plus, I'm not sure if I like the color combination. I may use black in place of the cream and use a different color for the pink. I would like to have a color plan as a make this afghan.
This is the nice thing about this pattern. I didn't waste much time making this square. I will be keeping this pattern to make some pillows or baby blankets.
If you are looking for an easy challenge and looking for free patterns. I would highly recommend Jessieathome.com. I saved her website as one of my favorites.
I will post again with a picture of my second square and maybe a little of how it went the second time around.
Until then, happy crocheting!
