V ‘My Diamond’ Scarf

Hi everybody!

It’s been a while, but I come with exciting news…

I have written up my first beginner level crochet pattern. It’s been tested by some of my fantastic Instagram pals who have provided me with lots of constructive feedback and encouragement to keep going with it.

It is one thing crocheting as a hobby, but actually designing and getting it just right, I feel is much more complex.

One of the most useful things that I have followed along the way and a total ‘must read’ for those wanting to do this too is the Dora Does blog for:

How to read (and write) a quality crochet pattern

My free pattern can be found here (below) or downloaded from Love Crafts. I hope that you enjoy making it as much as I did creating it!
