Item details

I created this motif to use as part of a larger freeform project. It measures 6.5” X 4.25” and could potentially be used as anything from a project embellishment to component of a large freeform project. The stitches and the shapes are quite versatile. They would be easy to modify as well as work into a larger project. It has good texture but not so much that it couldn’t be worked into a hat or coat. For this listing I am offering something special - both the pattern and the piece itself. Having the piece in front of you while working allows you to see all the tiny details. Its a great opportunity for someone just learning. Since I cannot offer a digital download and a physical object in the same listing I will do this - I will send a full-color printed copy of the pattern with the item and email a pdf copy of it to the email address on the paypal account used for payment within 2 (usually 1) business day. This will let you get a head start before the piece and printed pattern arrive.

Although an intermediate familiarity with crochet is suggested this would be a great introduction to freeform. Its small and only uses four colors of yarn. I use existing stitches but in a slightly unconventional manner. I also include some general information about freeform and explanations of why I do certain things (tutorial is 8 pgs) and 14 full-color photos.

Since the tutorial focuses on freeform techniques and not so much on learning individual stitches I include only a written explanation of the following non-basic stitches/techniques. If you are unfamiliar with them you may need to locate a video or extensive photo tutorial focused solely on the stitch/technique There are lots of them available for free:

Cluster Stitch
Royal Ridge Stitch
Knurl/Crab/Reverse sc/Corded ridge Stitch
Magic circle
Standing sc
Standing hdc

I used the following worsted weight yarn available from Hobby Lobby:
I Love This Yarn, 416 Sunset
I Love This Yarn, 230 Light Peach
I Love This Yarn, 292 Amethyst
I Love This Yarn, 320 Sea Blue

If you have any questions about the contents of the tutorial please don’t hesitate to message me.
