Well, I actually called her Grandma, but granny seems more appropriate because I crocheted my first granny square yesterday! I used this pattern. The questions below are meant for the Crochet group in case you're wondering why I'm asking random crochet questions on my blog. 🙂
According to the book pictured on the left, I was supposed to cut the yarn 6 inches from the end of the square and fasten off. What do you do with the resulting tail? Weave it in somewhere? I'm asking because I plan to do an afghan so I will need to attach them to each other and obviously don't want a bunch of strings hanging from each square.
I also tried this new stitch shown below. I really like it. It's funky, and I'm making a camera case out of it. The bulkiness of the stitch does kind of take away from the ultracompact nature of the camera so I might make another one later with a smaller stitch. Does anyone have suggestions for how to do a little button loop on the top when I'm ready to finish it? Do I just do a few chain stitches in a loop, or will that not work for some reason? I was going to just to a final row of sc and in the middle of the row do a loop of chain stitches for the button. Thanks for any help you can give me! I know these are probably stupid questions, but I'm a relative newbie to crochet.
