Crochet confusion

This is by far the most complicated thing I have ever attempted but I am enjoying the challenge.

I found the pattern here:


via http://www.crochetpatterncentral.com which also has a directory for knitting patterns too.

I think perhaps it would be easier if I was using the wool recommended instead of this thick felted wool, but I just adore the rich cerise colour and the felty feel of it. (Katia Mystery, shade 7655)

Each day I attempt at least the next 3 rows, and slowly but surely it is advancing. I do have to have complete silence so that I can count out loud and have several little reusable stickers that I can attach to the pattern to mark my place in the counting.

Ah there are so many hobbies that make us insanely proud to be able to count up to 4!

I am sure crochet must fall into this category.

That fifth string on the banjo really complicates my life!
