freeform crochet technique guide

freeform crochet technique guide


my first ever guide is finally here!! so excited to share this with you <3

About the guide:
This is a guide for a freehand technique, so will not be describing stitch by stitch how to make a garment. Rather, it will explain in depth (with photos and charts) how to create the freeform stitch pattern to make a sample flat panel, followed by multiple pages of info on how to use the stitch to make a garment to fit you. This will include how to make a low-back top, and how to create a yoke to make a top-down garment.

Because this is not a stitch-by-stitch pattern, it is expected that you will make a practice swatch to learn the technique before embarking on making a garment.

Recommended materials:
The example is worked with two colours of DK merino yarn and a 4mm hook. However, you can use any yarn you have on hand to work through the swatch. There is a page on how to choose your yarn and hook sizes, and the effect that your choice will create.

Recommended knowledge:
Chain stitch, half double crochet (US terminology), foundation single crochet
Increases and decreases
Beginner/intermediate confidence with crochet

a couple of reviews from testers :)
"I haven't crocheted in years and never have been able to follow a pattern for the life of me, but I think I can actually do this! As someone who physically cannot focus on a pattern, it's perfect. The visuals help immensely."
"Love the well-detailed and lovely illustrations on how to start off the branch and bud motifs. Think a beginner of free form will probably be able to understand."
"This is too much fuuun! Instructions and visuals are very clear to me and feel like I was able to pick it up real quick."
