16. Crochet Trivet

This must have been the first time after having left primary school that I actually tried to crochet again. I had a lot of help from this website (German), where there are still many more ideas (including lots of stars) so I might come back to that at some point - seeing that I still need some practice. I had to start over at least 5 times when I had entirely lost track of what I was doing. But it was a nice occupation on the train ride today.
This star is rather large. I might use it as a trivet should I ever need one...

I really like how this challenge makes me try out new techniques (or others that are so old they're practically new to me again ;)).


  1. Oh WOW!! That really looks like it has been quite difficult to do. Maybe I should try crocheting myself. The only thing I made was a little seal back in primary school - I tried it again when I was a youth, but it didn't work at all. What a pity that I don't have crochet hooks here to try it on my way to my mum's. But maybe on my way back home...?

  2. Oh, Sis, I'm so proud of you for going through with this!! Especially when I think of my knitting-experiment that I still haven't finished after almost three years... But I digress.
    I love that star, it looks really pretty in an old-fahioned way. You should crochet decorations for our christmas tree! Although probably not this one, because its so large.
    I'm really looking forward to seeing it next weekend ;]
