My first attempt at crochet

 My first attempt at crocheting - used 3 balls of double knitting in cream and beige round the edge. I mixed the cream and beige together to make the flowers. Sewn buttons in the middle to finish off.
 Please don't take my word for this but I think I used double crochets ( TUTORIAL HERE ) and single crochets on this blanket. The flowers ( TUTORIAL HERE ) are not perfect but for a first timer, I am pleased with the end result.
 So easy to do.
Now this second blanket - is again done in double knitting in a mint green baby wool.
The picture doesn't really show its true colour. I'm on my second ball of wool and plan to use four.
I found the pattern on the internet just googling free patterns.
 Here is the link.
This is the pattern I downloaded.

Here are the tutorials that I followed on youtube.
single crochet - HERE
triple crochet - HERE
I hope you can click on the links - and enjoy playing like I have,
Happy Crafting.
