My first real crochet projects

I've been dabbling in crochet for a few years, but never got past the usual scarfs and potholders, ya know, things that required no pattern on special stitches. I recently caught the Wool Bug, and wanted to increase my stash on the cheap, so I picked my hooks back up and found some beginner projects. I started small and with cheap yarn

Cat Toy


Octopus


And decided I was ready to try my hand at a soaker


I'm happy with how it turned out, and can't wait to get prettier yarn and do some more!

Thanks for looking!

It was a free pattern by Dandelion Dreamers on Ravelry.
