Crochet a garden pot nursery

During these periods of prolonged confinement, a lot of people have used their extra time at home to learn new skills and crafts, such as crochet, knitting, sewing, and macramé. Other people have been taking up cooking and gardening. What is not to like about growing your own plants, fruits, and veggies? With a few tips and tips, you can even install a vegetable garden in smaller spaces, such as balconies and terraces. Watching planted seeds become real plants and harvest your carefully grown crop from your own nurtured plants is a deeply satisfying experience. In order to grow seeds into seedlings, you need seedling pots or air pots. Here your seeds can grow into small seedlings that can be transplanted to larger soil pots or even in the ground - if you have a garden.

Multi colour crochet projects

Multi colour crochet projects

Once you have learned the basic stitches of crochet, it is fun to experiment with different colours in your crochet work. If you work with different colours and different yarns, it is important that the yarns you use have a similar composition and thickness (yarn weight). This way you ensure that the stitches and tension of the crochet work are more or less the same. Alternating colours can be done in different ways. We practised our colour changing techniques with a fantastic crochet Intarsia cushion pattern.
