I’ve created quite a few of these freestyle knitted scarf, shawl, wraps with freeform crochet motifs over the years & they’ve proven to be very popular, probably because they can be worn any-which-way… as a light summer wrap or a chunky winter scarf… either way, they make a jazzy addition to your creative style…
This Purple, Turquoise, Beige wrap is gorgeous & has a lovely drape… one size fits most – 114 cm (45”) long x 45.5 cm (18”) wide – available for sale in my Etsy shop
This charcoal one is more classic but also drapes the body beautifully… one size fits most – 114 cm (45”) long x 45.5 cm (18”) wide – available for sale in my Etsy Shop
This particular shrug was created in Noro King & assorted yarns using chevron & spirals patterns as the most prominent crochet motifs. I love these little shrugs… they’re loose fitting & lightweight, great for those summer evenings or to jazz up your favourite winter jumper (sweater)… best of all they’re super fun to make… enjoy!!
Here are 3 new freeform crochet items that I hope you find interesting… An assortment of tassels attached to a long crochet chain… no 2 tassels are the same… & the assorted beads gives each necklace, lariat, belt beautiful drape.
Wear these fascinating pieces by draping them around your neck a few times to become necklaces… throw them diagonally across the beast & they become something else entirely… & then again, why not tie them around the waist & turn them into a glamorous belts
This is a delightful rainbow freeform handbag…. as cheerful & vibrant as crayons from childhood, don’t you think? The freeform fabric was built over a strong mesh base, lined with a bright, port-wine satin & has recycled, polished wooden handles
Size: 23cm (9”) at top tapering down to 28cm (11”) wide x 28cm (11”) deep (not including handle) – Handle: 14 cm (5 ½ ”) high
These 2, no pattern freeform crochet lace scarves, have been in my ‘to list’ box for so long I almost forgot I still had them… if you remember, I’ve blogged about these no pattern pieces before so, many of you will be familiar with this freeform technique, for those of you new to freeform its an easy way to get started.
Begin as you would any round crochet motif & work your stitches randomly, no need to complete each round, turn your work at any time & work over your half finished rounds so that you are creating odd shaped pieces any which way you like… this is no thinking crochet, just let the yarn & hook guide the way… incorporate as many stitches as you like… give your ‘creative pixie’ her head, don’t question her/him just allow it to happen…
~~~ for the ruby red one I used an assortment of 100% acrylic yarns, one of which has the tiniest hint of sparkle giving this piece an elegant touch of bling ~~~
~~~ for the Coffee Latte I used a 4ply 100% cotton ~~~
