Conquering Crochet Friday - On a Saturday



We've all been rugged up on the couch in the last couple of days with some random virus, so really its a Saturday Conquering Crochet this week....

This morning feeling a bit better, I managed to get a few snaps of my latest Crochet project, some nice and easy Hair bows.


which ever you like to call it...
yes the dreaded US versus UK term for crochet stitches, another thing I've learnt that's important to check on a pattern before you get started.  Here's a good crochet stitch conversion Chart
And then there is also checking you know how to do a stitch, probably before you moan to experienced crocheters how difficult a half treble is to do!.....that will be why the orange bow in the middle looks smaller than the blue and red ones.....
apparently I had made up a stitch!  Ooops :)
But now I know the correct way, these little bows have been alot quicker and easier to whip up, and again pretty cute!



And it looks like they're also fun to use for dressing up your toys

What drew me to the little bows is this cute hat

Being ambitious, I wouldn't mind giving this a go....it would look pretty cute on Lil Miss this winter. 
But I thought for now, the little clips were a wiser option.....maybe instead, for now I could try my hand at the bobble stitch and make this bow?  Though probably not as big as this.

Oh and before I forget, I've also crocheted some Crochet Bunting Love a couple of weeks ago which you can see here
