Inspired by miniature crochet animals made by SuAmi, I decided to try and make a miniature crochet rose. The task seemed simple enough: just use a very fine, single ply yarn, and a tiny crochet hook. Easy, right?
No. Nope. Not at all.
I thought I had good eyesight, but I have been proven wrong. I even thought I had pretty nimble fingers, but wrong again.
It was almost impossible to see the stitches and even more impossible to get the hook to go through them. But after a few tries, I managed to make one tiny rose, which is still not as tiny as SuAmi’s miniature animals. After a few hours of squinting my eyes and doing crochet-acrobatics, I take my hat off to SuAmi, and will stick to normal-sized roses from now on.
Speaking of which: I bought some awesome new yarns from a lovely shop called Karnaluks in Tallinn, Estonia. I’ve already made a few roses using the yarns, and I’ll be posting the results on my blog someday soon.
And here’s what I managed to make this time. It’s a little under 2cm in diameter (so less than 0.787402 inches, if that makes sense).
Thanks for viewing! And happy Easter to everyone!
