DIY Decorated Swell Shell Crochet Cowl – Scarf Week Day 4

I have a confession to make… I’ve tried to learn crochet so many times in the past. For some reason it felt so complicated, like it all were in Chinese LOL. I think I know now what was my problem. I was trying to learning crochet with an owl amigurumi, can you believe that??? hahahaha… It would have been a miracle if had done it! Then with this Swell Shell Crochet Cowl and the help of my mom I finally understand it. I’m crazy right???

The thing is that I need a purpose to learn something. I don’t like just making stitches, like “this is chain, go ahead and make it, – until when? – just do lots!” and there is no goal, no finish line, no final product. That is really so not motivating.

    lovely!! that’s one thing that takes awhile to get used to – getting tangled in your yarn!

    I am so proud of you, Camila, for all the NEW triumphs you experienced – – completing your first crochet project is a HUGE win. I also loved getting to “meet” you on video – – you are so adorable and your gentle way of explaining things is so endearing. I hope this is the first of many video tutorials for you, my dear! I subscribed to your channel so I can stay in the loop. I, too, loved your cute in-process photos (I’ve SO been there before with frustration…but the fact that you powered through and made it to the finish line is so inspiring). Then, you went above and beyond with the added flower pin embellishments. Pulled out all the stops with this one. Pinning!

    Congrats on learning a new skill! You shall never be cold again! I certainly understand the sentiment about getting frustrated and feeling tangled up in yarn. I made my daughter a knitted baby blanket as simple as it was IT TOOK THE WHOLE PREGNANCY TO DO! I didn’t get to make her anything else which was disappointing. Your cowl scarf looks great!

    1. Camila

      hahahaha, I hear ya! you were brave starting with a whole blanket! I’m glad you like my work!!! I’m super happy even though I wanted to throw it out the window at a times haha!
      Thanks so much for stopping by!
