The past few days have been devoted to learning crochet. Not only learning how to crochet, but learning from Japanese crochet patterns. It may sound intimidating, but it could not be any simpler (with the help of the Internet).
Recently, I have been falling in love with the Japanese pattern books and websites. The zakka patterns have such effortless style and grace, what is not to love. I am loving this site, which is what started the “must learn crochet” mentality. More specifically, the zakka.
So many free patterns, it took a few hours to really settle on my first crochet project. What did I pick? Why, this lovely apron! Its simplicity is so lovely, to me. Doesn’t it make you want to jump in the kitchen and whip up some sashimi?!
