When i crochet, or make anything else for that matter, i have to admit i am not the greatest follower of pattern… THERE, i’ve said it!
There is a reason why i use crochet over any other needle crafts which is the main reason I LOVE CROCHET! It is because it is far less restricting and far more forgiving than some other wool crafts i have dabbled in over the years.
With crochet, you can start you can start any crochet project without as much as a faintest idea of what you want to end up with. You can start with a plan but change it half way through and still end up with exactly what you wanted. The possibilities are endless.
So very often, i has started with just a stitch, a pattern i liked and pushed it as far as it would go (sometimes all the way to the bin). 🙂 I use repetition and round themes and circles and the fact that crochet grows in circular fashion makes it even more appealing. Generally this makes me want to test each and every stitch/technique i try in the circular configuration…. Read more HERE about one such effort…
Another amazing quality of crochet is the fact that it is so tactile. Creating 3d shapes and three dimensional crochet lace stitches is very rewarding to create beautiful tactile pieces of work.
Because i like to test crochet to it’s limits, i very often create items without pattern. Therefore i decided to write the patterns down. Partly so most of you gifted craft makers, who i am convinced are much better at following a pattern than me, can create some of the items that i have made, and partly so i can actually speed up the process for myself and don’t have to remember everything i have ever done every time i start a new project…
