Lockdown as that saying about life states ‘is what you make it’ never a truer word especially when you are an actual maker/creator and make physical things. Therefore. it goes with out saying, that for me, lockdown became the biggest excuse to crochet! Here then are eight of my completed lockdown crochet projects They are more but I need to photograph them. . .and a few still to be put together. !
A Few Completed Lockdown Crochet Projects
Where to begin? I hooked up, blankets, cardigans, scarves, collars, fingerless gloves the list goes on. I am presently working on a jumper very similar to one that my mother had in the 1960’s and that i used to borrow in the late 1970’s! most of the finished patterns are very suitable for beginners crochet projects
