I Finally Made One

Hello and welcome back everyone! I have a special announcement for you all today.

In between the five years of crocheting and knitting, family and friends asked me who I learned from and if I can teach them. Guys, I can teach you now :D !! My youtube channel was used for a fun amigurumi animation, but I now want to extend that into tutorials for my patterns. Yup, you guessed it! I will be teaching you all how to crochet this Leprechaun pattern of mine from the first stitch to the last for the first tutorial. I included subtitles in the video just in case you cannot hear me clearly and apologise in advance as the lighting might be odd in some scenes, it was my first time filming! The link to the video will be listed down below along with the instructions :) .
