I created this motif to demonstrate a few popular freeform stitches/concepts. It contains a brief introduction to freeform and a chance to try out one of the most popular freeform motifs. The finished piece measures 5" in diameter and could potentially be used as anything from a project embellishment to component of a larger freeform fabric such as a tote bag or jacket.
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:
The following yarn was used in the example: • Yarn Bee, Soft Secret, Denim (Medium Blue) • Yarn Bee, Soft Secret, Mist (Silver/Gray) • Yarn Bee, Soft Secret, Blueberry Hill Ombre (Variegated Blue yarn with white and silver)
Size F Aluminum crochet hook Small yarn needle Scissors Handheld garment steamer/blocking board (optional)
The two more advanced stitches used are the knurl and the bullion. Magic circle and chainless hdc are also used. The construction of the "petals" around the edge uses basic stitches but the technique is somewhat advanced. All of these include either links to tutorials or extensive pictures and explanations.
The tutorial itself is 12 pages long and includes 18 full-color photos.
If you have any questions about the contents of the tutorial please don’t hesitate to message me.
