Freeform Crochet- 9 inch square.

My plan is to make a crossbody bag with this square and another. I have made one other bag this way. My plan is to line the bag, and use a zipper to close the top. I crochet the zipper to the bag.

Anyone else just not enjoy crocheting?

I've been told I'm really good at it, but I'm a bit of a perfectionist and the stuff I've made has always took me a very long time to finish. I get bored and always find it so tedious. I've just spent 3 hours trying to figure out what to crochet, just to make nothing. I wish I enjoyed it because I'd love to sell things to make some money as a student, but I get so stressed rather than relaxed. Any tips would be appreciated

I have been out-crocheted 😍😅

My 14m kid made this, in one day. Like, oh, nbd. Just whipped up this commission. 😂 I've been crocheting for 40+ years and I've never made anything this cool!!

I love that he's inspiring me too 😍

Sunflower for Mother’s Day

Anyone else not realize this beauties can take up to 10 hours and stay up til 3 am to have it ready for their mom today? But I’m still excited to make more and try other types of flowers. What are some other flowers that you’ve enjoyed making?

Mother’s Day gift!

My mom taught me how to crochet when I was 7/8 years old. I got really frustrated and never even finished a project. Tried to get back into it a few years ago and had the same result. About a month ago I picked up yet again but decided to only focus on really learning stitches and I didn’t try to make anything at all and I just got the basics down. This is my first ever completed crochet project that I am gifting my mom for Mother’s Day today. I am so extremely proud of myself for sticking with it and finally finishing my first ever project!

I’m teaching my 14 y/o son how to crochet, whether he likes it or not!

Parents of teenagers, I imagine lots of you can relate. My 14 year old son spends a lot of time on his phone or other devices. To his credit, if he has a friend around to hang with, he will choose real human interaction, and sports play specially, over the screen every time. But there are plenty of times when other kids aren’t around or the weather is no good for sports, and at these times he tells me that he has no idea what to do with himself if I make him get off the screens. Enter crochet!

I have decided I am teaching him to crochet. He expressed vague interest when I first started learning about 2 years ago. He genuinely admires my completed works. He sees that it’s a cool ability. On his own, he would not put in the effort to learn, but if I say, Come on, come sit with me for 10 minutes and practice, he will. So we’re doing this.

I figure, the worst that can happen here is that he slightly grumbles through lessons until he actually starts to enjoy it or until I lose the ability to compel him to do it. Even in the worst case, he’ll have a memory of doing this thing with me. In the best case, he acquires an amazing skill that will serve him over his lifetime.

Just wondering if others have taken a similar approach with a kid in their life.

Pic is of our first practice piece. Just a swatch of sc, but a small mom victory.

Advice with where this double crochet is going wrong

https://preview.redd.it/hebxd9kfb10d1.jpg?width=1440&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d4c642eae58199f93690ea59d64b2b7ab507220a

As you can see from the photo, I have worked 3 x turning chains at the end of each row. This has resulted in 2 large gaps (seen in the right hand side of the photo). I shall be grateful if anyone can advise me where I am going wrong. Should I just work 2 x turning chains? Many thanks in advance.

Crochet underwear?

Silly but honest question: I just saw a post with a link to Ravelry and I noticed some underwear (bottom part) and I realised that I never thought about making it, in shops and stored I've seen a lot of top that might resembles a bra but not the bottom part. Someone tried and used it? Do you conver the inside with cotton or just go raw crochet? How does it feel?
