Crochet-A-Long Experience

fullsizeoutput_833.jpegMy first ever graph-gan (an afghan crocheted from a chart or graph) crochet along has come to an end. I never thought I would do one. It didn’t interest me until I was invited to join in on one. I’m glad I got that invite!

17 amazing blocks created by Jamie at Hooking Housewives for the show “Hart of Dixie”. All were crocheted using the bobble stitch in Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn.  And one amazing themed polymer clay ergonomic crochet hook from Hook-N-Clay.

I had fun. I really did. I loved the show and re-watched it while crocheting on Netflix.  I learned a new stitch that I originally found intimidating.  But once I got the hang of it, I found myself enjoying it and making other items for myself. Each block popped in the bobble stitch. The bobbles gave the graphs an extra punch.

The only con I have to share is that the bobble stitch is time consuming and a major yarn hog, but it is worth it. Don’t be afraid to try it. I know you will be happy you did. Brittany at Bhooked Crochet has a great tutorial on youtube.

I am now ready to begin my next CAL with Chaos and Chop Suey and her Grease Themed graph-gan! I will be using the same yarn, because it truly is great yarn, and a different stitch. Mini C2C.

Happy Crocheting!
