Crochet Square 52

The one thing I need to get better at is making circles and working inside the circle. I struggle each and every time trying to get it “just so”, which wastes time. And I am already a slow crocheter.

This square went ok once I was satisfied with the ring of double crochets. I redid them 3 times. They didn’t look even to me or didn’t lay flat enough. After that, it was smooth sailing.

Another thing I am learning about myself is that my chain stitch loop is really long. I find I need to add more filler stitches to cover it. Going to try to make it smaller.

I added a flower to the center. It looked too plain.
