5 Inspirando Crochet técnicas e estilos que provavelmente não vai entrar (Semana de Blog de crochê, Dia 6)

The topic of today for Knitting and Crochet Blog Week is to take a look at where you’re at with the craft and where you want to be. I always think it’s good to do this. Na verdade, I make these lists a lot. (Aqui estão 25 crochet styles to try, for example.) But what I’ve learned over time is that I actually don’t want to learn most of the techniques that I say that I want to learn. They are often things that I think are beautiful but the truth is that the details of doing the work end up not interesting me personally as a crafter. Eu posso querer produzir os resultados, mas eu não apreciar o processo, então não vou dizer nunca, Porque nunca se sabe, Mas bem agora, aqui estão cinco super técnicas de crochê incrível que eu adoro olhar e provavelmente não vai já fazer sozinho:

1. Laço de cabo de vassoura

I think that broomstick lace is shockingly beautiful. Na verdade, it just might be the most beautiful type of crochet in my eyes. No entanto, the actual process of doing it doesn’t really interest me all that much. I am admittedly an impatient crocheter who doesn’t mind sometimes having stitches that aren’t even in size and shape and that’s fine by me but I feel like I wouldn’t want that with broomstick lace. I feel like the joy of loving it so much would be lessened by actually working it so I’m going to do my basic stitches and just adore this one from afar. This actually is probably true of other types of crochet that aren’t plain old hook crochet including tunisian crochet, knooking and hairpin lace.

Atualização: Never say neverI learned laço de cabo de vassoura in late 2012 and ended up loving it!

2. Tapeçaria crochê, Especially Portraits

I think tapestry crochet is super impressive. I’m probably more impressed by this type of crochet than any other in terms of technique. I especially like crochet portraits like the ones that Jo Hamilton faz. And I like landscapes and pictures. The Gone with the Wind poster in tapestry crochet is one of my favorite things I’ve ever seen online. And for awhile I thought I wanted to learn tapestry crochet. But actually I don’t really like changing colors often and I don’t like working with graphs so I can’t see actually enjoying working on tapestry crochet.

3. Reading Symbol Charts

This is a skill that I think is great if you enjoy crocheting from patterns especially complex patterns and foreign language patterns. EU, no entanto, have pretty much no intention of ever learning to read symbol charts. My brain flat out does not think that way. I’m so glad that books and designers offer symbol charts for the crocheters that do work best this way. But I don’t work that way. I’m a words person. And I highly doubt that’s ever going to change.

4. YarnBombing

There was a point in time where I kind of wanted to do some YarnBombing. Na verdade, when I first read about yarnbombing I was very envious of the girl crews with the cool names and the great camaraderie and I even got in touch with a local yarnbomber to see if she wanted some help but that didn’t pan out and over time I’ve decided that I don’t really care if I never do any yarnbombing myself. I think it’s cool. Eu gosto disso. It makes me smile when I see it in my city. I’m not opposed to doing it myself but I’m not actively seeking it out either so I doubt this is one I’ll end up trying. But you never know. :)

Atualização: Although I’ve never gone out and yarn bombed anything myself, I’ve contributed my work to several collaborative yarn bombing projects including those by Yarnbombing LA.

5. Amigurumi

I tried it once. Once was enough for me. I don’t do a ton of fancy stitches when I crochet but I got really bored with the sc of amigurumi. And I don’t really like working with small hooks. And I hate sewing parts together. And I think stuffing is annoying. I think people do really super cute stuff with this crafty aspect of crochet but I’m enjoying it online and at craft fairs and not by doing it myself.

  1. I didn’t know so many crocheters don’t read chartsCharts are the first thing what you learn when you learn to crochet in LV (and probably also in Russia, and Eastern Europe). It is a great skill that opens up a whole new world:)

    I am planning to yarnbomb my bicycle this summer :)

    • @ElevenHandmade Yes, that’s what everyone says about reading charts but I swear my mind just flat out refuses to work that way!

      Definitely would love to see photos of your yarnb

      Sim, that’s what everyone says about reading charts but I swear my mind just flat out refuses to work that way!

      Definitely would love to see photos of your yarnbombed bike when it’s done!

  2. Oi, Kathryn!

    I agree with all your picks exceptreading charts. Eu os amo! But it is helpful to have written explanations at times. E, I think I’m too selfish to sacrifice my yarn for yarnbombing at this time in my life. I can totally see myself doing it, no entanto. Have a good Sunday afternoon.

  4. I’m a bit surprised about the broomstick lace, considering your love of fashionable wearables, but the others make sense to me based on what I’ve seen of your work and project preferences :).
