I have really been on a crochet kick lately, haven't I? In an attempt to expand my crochet horizons, I've been pinning small crochet projects to teach myself new stitches and techniques. The project I chose for my May Pinterest attempt is something I've been wanting to do since the first time I saw it.
I found this pattern on Starting Chain on Facebook. Starting Chain offers tutorial videos for all kinds of crochet projects and stitches. So if you're on Facebook, take a look at their page. I will put a link to the actual project below.
Back to my project.
The question is: Would I want to put something on this and cover it up? Maybe not. I might just hang this up somewhere. Either way, he will be my kitchen mascot.
To sum up, I liked the easy-to-follow instructions for this crochet project. The instructor tells you how many stitches you should have at the end of each row. That really helped me. I think I had a little miscount right at the end, but it didn't seem to have much of an impact on the cuteness of this finish. The instructions also are very clear on how to make each type of stitch and I appreciated that reminder.
See how I'm breaking out of the "I can only crochet things that are square or rectangular" routine? Now I can crochet things that are chicken-shaped.
