Welcome to the freeform world, I’m really pleased that the info is useful. There are no failures in freeform so enjoy the liberation. You might like to have a look at my ‘Beginners Crochet Notebook’ page, it has lots of helpful info, not only for beginners but also for the more experienced. There’s an easy to understand section on reading patterns which you may find useful 🙂
Thank you for this website. I didn’t even know free form crochet was a thing. I am making my first ever crochet item – a blanket – and it is free form in the sense that I am making it up as I go because I detest reading patterns and get bored easily and this way I can change it as the mood dictates without feeling like a failure for not doing a pattern ‘right’.
Thanks, Cjindy… 🙂
I just love free form, Thanks for sharing
