It’s the month of Aries and those of you born under the sign of the Ram are energetic, upbeat and enthusiastic – the sort of go-getters who like to make things happen. You love to try new things and take risks, so are quite likely to leap straight into an advanced project, even if you’ve never crocheted before! You’re also prepared to meet a challenge head-on, no matter how tough, and your passion and positivity will give everyone in your crochet group a boost.
Other traits you share with the Ram however is being stubborn, even if you’re tackling a project in the wrong way. You can also be impulsive and impatient – we all want to dive into a pattern right away, but it really is worth reading it all the way through first! Some Aries may also have a habit of being distracted by something new and leaving projects half-finished, but if you really want to improve at your crochet, it’s worth staying the distance (as long as you’re still enjoying yourself, of course!) As an added incentive, you can reward yourself with a treat from our list once you’re done.
