Item details

I created this motif for the express purpose of making a tutorial. It contains not only an introduction to freeform but a chance to try out some popular stitches for those a little uncertain about exactly where to start. The finished piece measures 9” X 11”. 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.

To replicate the piece you will need:
Sport weight yarn in the following colors:
Light Brown
Medium Brown
Dark Brown
Size E Aluminum crochet hook
Small yarn needle
Handheld garment steamer (optional)

Although an intermediate familiarity with crochet is suggested this would be a great introduction to freeform. Once you start to catch on this is a motif that can be modified and/or added to a bit for the purposes of experimentation without negatively impacting the remainder of the design.

I use existing stitches but in a slightly unconventional manner. I have also incorporated some more advanced techniques. They not only add some very nice touches to freeform but are truly valuable in almost all crochet. I also include some general information about freeform and explanations of why I do certain things (tutorial is 21 pgs and includes 48 full-color photos).

Since the tutorial focuses on freeform techniques and not so much on learning individual stitches I don’t include a full stitch tutorial for every stitch. I do include hyperlinks to photo and/or video tutorials on the Internet, however. Here’s what’s included:

Hyperlinks to tutorials on the following:
Knurl/crab/reverse sc st
Royal ridge st (also includes 3 pictures)
Bullion st
Magic circle
Standing sc
Standing hdc
Chainless starting dc

Written Explanation of the following:
4 dc popcorn
Berry st

Written Explanation and detailed photos of the following:
