Here I have created two bracelets through crocheting. The first bracelet is smaller with a pastel blue button and can wrap around your hand twice, while the bigger one is complete with a golden flower button and can wrap around your hand three times. Both of them were created using the twisted half double crochet. During the beginning creation of these bracelets, I struggled to gain the hang of crocheting, but by the end of it I mastered the different crochets that we learned. I am very happy with the final aesthetic of my bracelets.
For the quarter 1 benchmark, I needed to pick a pattern and figure out exactly what I wanted to create. At first, I did struggle, I had no idea how to crotchet, and I still have no idea how to crotchet. I decided to create a headband, that people could wear during the winter. The pattern consists of a slip stitch and 4 chains. I made three different headbands, before I made one that I was actually proud of. If I could start over, I think I'd take it seriously before actually having to create something, because, I didn't actually try doing it until it was crunch time. I still am not confident, to teach others,
For my Unit 1 Benchmark., I made a pullover scarf.I wanted to make this scarf for my mom because blue is her favorite color and she wears cream a lot. I had struggles at first reading the pattern but then I looked up the abbreviations. This pattern consists of a single and double crochet. It starts of with a single crochet and then proceeds to a double crochet in the next few rows. I enjoyed this process and now with learning to crochet i have found something that keeps me level headed and can turn to when I am stressed. I cant wait for the winter to start so my mom can be warm. I will continue to make things with my brand new crochet skills.
