crochet-addiction enabling for beginners...

Maria Luciana Doherty "principessa M"
The list author says: "After years of seeing marvelous crocheted items completed by relatives, and a childhood of colorful wearables that totally gave way my late 70's birth, a simple warm scarf crocheted as a Christmas gift a few years ago led to my addiction to crochet. Totally incompetent in knitting...this is my creative, crafty way of adding new things to my wardrobe and beyond....."

"I recently added amigurumi to myto-do list and this has been my go-to for getting started.  The patterns seem to have some slight mistakes,   They use UK standards so use the hook guide.  In UK double crochet is single crochet here.  With a little awareness of crocheting in the round ,you will be able to 'fix' the  directions while hooking up some ADORBALE little toys."
