Crochet - here lies madness
I bought myself a new crochet book the other day from The Works. There were some lovely projects in it BUT now I am trying to do them, they are truly not the easiest of patterns. I bought some gorgeous sock yarn but I have abandoned the socks I was trying to do as the "destructions" floored me when I got to the heel and going up into the ankle. This after about 6 goes just getting that far!
I then blew caution to the wind and spend more money on some more yarn to make a scarf instead, which has "htrb". That's half treble in back bar. I think she's made it up as I can't find anything like it on Youtube or crochet sites.
I am sorely tempted to ditch the book and just start on something even crochet dummies like me can do . . .
Edited to say Dawn came to the rescue (and you were ALL so helpful and supportive and I haven't burned the book!) and I am now romping along with it. One SLIGHT problem - my efforts don't at ALL resemble the photo in the book, but do I care?!
I've just found THIS: http://nadinespatterns.blogspot.co.uk/2009/10/round-and-round-toe-up-socks-crochet.html Now this actually EXPLAINS what is happening and where, and I could do these socks.
