Find a small pattern such as a square or motif that has a stitch chart. Work the project from only the chart without following any written instructions.
I am using the leaf and floral charts for my big Irish crochet project to complete this post. Here are a few of the charts followed by a couple of photos of the work in progress on a foam core board. The last pic is of my sweet Barney with his birthday hat on from his birthday this past week.
