My Crocheted Creations
Created By: Jill Horn

I started crocheting at nine years old and have been crocheting ever since. My grandmother taught me how to crochet. She only taught me to chain and single crochet but that was enough.



Then when I was in junior high school, my best friend's mother taught me how to make afghans using the shell stitch so she had to teach me the double crochet and how to read instructions. I can now teach myself how to make almost anything by reading instructions and have helped many others to learn to crochet and also to read instructions.



I have used my crocheted creations as gifts. I make a baby blanket or sweater for every newborn baby in my family and a blanket for every couple as a wedding gift. I like to give hand made gifts rather than buying gifts because it is more personal and shows that I've taken the time to make something for them.



My grandmother made hundreds of crocheted cross bookmarks. When I'd been crocheting for many years, I tried to make the bookmarks like she did but couldn't get it right. My grandmother has since passed away and there was no pattern written down. Just last year, I tried to find a pattern on the internet but couldn't find the pattern she used. My best friend's mother that taught me how to make afghans mailed me one cross bookmark she had in her house and I was able to teach myself how to make a crocheted cross bookmark from this sample. I crocheted several of them and brought them to a family reunion that summer and gave them out to my cousins and aunts and uncles. My aunts told me my grandma used to use a very small needle and thread that's why hers were so small. Mine were much bigger than hers were. They were happy to have a reminder of our grandma.
