I did some more research and I found a lovely website called Happy Berry Crochet where there are all sorts of lovely crochet patterns and tips and, the most fantastic tutorial videos on you tube showing how to make some VERY cute little projects.
I just had to give them a try and this weekend I got started! Here are the cuties I have made so far but, I have a feeling I will be making many more!!!
On the left of this photo is the hook (4.00 mm) that I crocheted my little owls with, the middle hook (2.50 mm) is the one I have used for the little green and purple turtles and on the right is the teeny, tiny hook (0.75 mm) that I am hoping to use for a future micro crochet project!!
I used a hook size in between (3.50 mm) for the little blue turtle (who is a little bit bigger) as, I was using yarn I already had and, it was too thick for the 2.50 mm hook. Aren't they a cute little family?!!
