I FINALLY started working on the daisy crochet charity square. Part of the deal of getting the pattern is that you have to make one and send it to the author. She does some great work making charity blankets and makes one beautiful pattern.
The pattern was a bit complicated - crocheting in front of this and behind that, changing colors, etc. But I got the hang of it and it was looking good.
Well, it was looking good until I got to the part where you create corners around the petals to make it a square.
I don't know how this happened. I don't know why I didn't catch this problem sooner but...as I rounded the last corner I noticed something was a bit off.
Here's what my square looks like:
Here's what it was supposed to look like:
How did I end up with 9 petals instead of 8??? I don't know. I don't know where I miscounted and I don't know why I didn't double check the number of petals I was supposed to have. I guess I was too busy concentrating on learning the technique.
Oh well. What I do know is that this square will be frogged and I'll have to start all over again. Mrah!
