So I went to teach mom to crochet Monday, she can knit but wanted to try. She wanted to make squares- easy.
She wanted to make a granny square - still kinda easy. Except for starting off.
In the end I had a headache, it was a square with 6 rounds to it. We did 4.........in 2 hours.
She stopped, decided is was a small coaster.
Morals of the story:
1) Insist on doing a square in rows
2) get them a book with really good illustrations.
