Zig-zag Crochet

Yesterday I decided to learn a new pattern for crochet.  I have finished the bed blanket and sofa throw.  After living in Scotland for many years I have got used to often sitting with a blanket around my shoulders to keep warm.  So I decided my next project before moving back to the cushion covers will be a personal blanket.  This is why I wanted to test out another pattern as it wont need to match the rest of the furnishings. 

 I spent a few hours working on this yesterday but I have had difficulty at the corners and seem to be adding and taking away stitches at the edges.  I am really happy with the pattern however I need to take it apart and try to make the edges more perfect. 

 I have also managed to give myself an amazing crochet callus on my finger.  this is because my hook is a little rough on the edge my finger rests on.  I think I will try and print a hook on a better quality printer.
