It's been about 10 months since I taught myself how to crochet. If I can figure it out I think anyone can. In the beginning I watched a lot of youtube videos and picked up "amigurumi world, seriously cute" because after all it was amigurumis that got me wanting to learn how to crochet.
This little cupcake is the first thing I ever crocheted myself from start to finish. It is probably a little larger than a golf ball and there are oopsies all over the place but that is why I love it so much. After I made a few of the smaller characters I ventured out to make my first larger scale piece.
Which is how this cactus was born. As you can see my crocheting slowly got better and I was really enjoying the process. This cactus was all done in one piece except the flower. My next project was to master appendages which proved to be the hardest of them all.
To this day attaching arms, legs, ears, etc is the most difficult part of the process for me.
So with a little time, yarn and a hook the possibilities are endless. I would encourage anyone interested in learning crochet to go for it. If I can do it, so can you.
