What happens with your brain when crocheting?

Crochet has the ability to soothe your body and ease your mind. It is similar to meditation and mindfulness.
As far as I am concern, crocheting absorbs me completely, noting else seems to matter. Following the pattern, stitching, counting, matching colors… When I am involved in “creativity” I feel that I’m living more fully. Did you try it? Did you sense it too?

How to finish what you started?

Getting to the point where you’re ‘almost done’ can be both thrilling and cause of anxiety. Yes, I’m nearly there, so close to being done and simply can’t get motivated. How I overcome that feeling?

   The end vision is slipping so I just need to bring it back in sight, visualize it!
   Tracking the progress helps me understand how I’m doing.
   Promise to all my blog readers that I’m going to finish it till certain time!

    How do you motivate yourself to finish a project that’s almost done?

After many frustrating attempts I was finally starting to get my head around creating my own crochet charts in Photoshop. So far I'm really excited about the results and feel like I'm starting to get to grips with the whole process. I love learning new things! Any suggestions?  My main concern is how to make a chart for this lovely baby I’ ve designed lately.

Crochet together…

Why not we crochet together? I’ll help, you jump along but let me warn you, crocheting is highly addictive!

For this granny square which I like to call NO PLACE LIKE HOME, I used 100% cotton yarn and 3 mm crochet hook.
The tutorial is written in US terms.
Used stitches:
Single crochet - sc
Double crochet - dc
Slip stitch - sl st
Popcorn stitch

So, grab your hook and some yarn and go for it!
Chain 6 and slip stitch into the first chain to make a ring. Ch 1. Work 8 sc. Sl st into the ch 1 (picture 1).

Sl st to the first sc. Work one popcorn. To make the popcorn stitch: work 5 double crochet (dc) stitches in the same stitch. First chain 3 (picture 2). 

Then work another 4 dc (total 5dc – picture 3). Drop the loop from your hook. Insert your hook from front to back under the top 2 loops of the first double crochet of the group (picture 4). 

Grab the dropped loop with your hook and pull it through the stitch (picture 5). Ch2, repeat to the end, total 8 popcorns + 8 ch2 spaces.

Sl st to the top of the first popcorn (this is where you slip stitch goes – picture 8).

At this very stitch work one popcorn (picture 7), ch1. In chain two space of the previous round crochet another popcorn. Repeat to the end, total 16 popcorns. (pictures 9 and 10) Fasten off.

Add another color in any ch 1 space from previous round. Work 3dc (picture 11), repeat 2 more times (picture 12). 

To make corner space work 3dc+3ch+3dc . Repeat to the end.

One possibility is to work only first 8 pop corn stitches in one color and the rest of the square in same color. Like this.

I hope I helped. Should you have any difficulties let me know. Just leave the comment. 

Make something, surprise me and the most beautiful project I will reward with one free tutorial from my Etsy shop.

Sometimes the most confusing part of instructions is knowing where to put your hook for each stitch. That is why I included over 40 photos in this tutorial. Don’t miss the chance to get near-instant gratification by expressing your creativity. Make beautiful items with this THREE DIMENSIONAL flower square. Pattern is available at my Etsy store.
