Along with getting my crochet mojo back I’ve also been getting my art on. In actuality I started drawing before crocheting; I think the drawing rekindled my creative spark.
I’ve been exploring an abstract style I first started developing when I was a teenager. I might share more of my artwork here if there’s interest; tho I’m looking forward to sharing more of my crochet soon.
I sat for about 5 minutes trying to think of a good title for this post. It’s been ages since my last post. Sadly, I’ve not been crocheting as much as I was or as much as I would like to.
I do have some things I’d like to share though: I’ll begin with my first go at freeform crochet.
After admiring works of crocheted art on Pinterest, I thought I’d have a go myself.
I didn’t use a specific pattern but did Google freeform crochet for more inspiration.
I played around with hyperbolic crochet and used my amigurumi skills. I found tutorials explaining how to do the bouillon stitch and included some of that too.
My only regret now is using only one color of yarn. However, this was my first attempt…
My next go at freeform crochet, I feel, looks a lot better. But I’ll share that in another post. 🙂
Yesterday I made this. I have no idea what it is but it was fun just letting it manifest in front of me using hyperbolic crochet principles.
I began with a short tube of single crochets and then switched to single crochet increases in each stitch. Waves began to appear much more quickly than before creating a very ruffled effect. The tube was then turned and I worked the other way; experimenting with double crochets in a chain 5 loop, with added Single crochet increases to follow.
It was nice not having a pattern and just going with my gut.
I’ve now been challenged by Shana Rae to create a dragon with hyperbolic elements… best get my thinking cap on 🙂
