I created this motif to try out some creative stitches. It measures 8” X 10” and could potentially be used as anything from a project embellishment to component of a large freeform project. It has good texture but not so much that it couldn’t be worked into a somewhat flat freeform fabric. It could also serve as a really pretty trivet. 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. I mostly use existing stitches but in a slightly unconventional manner. Some stitches are beyond basic and for those I have included hyperlinks to instructional videos made by others. I also include some general information about freeform and explanations of why I do certain things (tutorial is 11 pgs) and 27 full-color photos.
