Last week on Facebook, somebody shared this link to a crochet jellyfish pattern. It came at just the right moment, when I was looking for my next crochet project.
I jumped in straight away and had a go!
I had to look up how to make a magic circle again - but I think I've finally got that mastered now.
The next thing to practise was counting those stitches and rounds. I got lots of practise using my times tables as I counted the various combinations of stitches into each loop. I know I should use a stitch counter or at least a paper clip to keep my spot and make that all easier, but I kind of like playing around with numbers in my head and it helped me to concentrate on my stitches too.
Generally I think I counted well, but I may have ended up with a few extra stitches in my final few rounds somehow...
Making the tentacles was fun, although I think I should have done a few more! I got a bit over excited about finishing and seeing the jellyfish hanging up!
I'm really pleased with how my jellyfish turned out.
Now I just have to find somewhere to hang him!
I'm always on the look out for new projects to practise and improve my crochet - so feel free to suggest any - leave me a link in the comments!
I shall be linking this post to many of the fabulous linky parties whose pretty buttons and direct links can be found on my linky party page.
