Happy Tuesday everyone! Yesterday we asked you the weekly Readers En-Gauge question. If you answered the question yesterday, you were eligible to win a prize from our yarn closet! I hope we all had a chance to learn something new!
Monday’s question was:
How did you learn to read crochet patterns? What are some tips that help you read new patterns?
You all had some great answers. The winner for this week is…Lorraine!
Lorraine answered: “I was taught many years ago by an elderly neighbor. She sent me home with a list of all the abbreviations and I had to know what they meant before she taught me the stitches. She explained from the beginning that knowing how to read a pattern was essential or your limits were very restricted and trying to crochet would be stressful instead of relaxing. I have taught my daughter the same way; and will teach my granddaughter’s with the same method.”
Congratulations Lorraine! You get the crafty prize of the week. Please contact us with your name and address so we can mail it to you.
Thank you to everyone who participated in this Monday’s Readers En-Gauge. Be sure to check back next week for more inquisitive fun!
