Earlier this year freeform crochet artist Prudence Mapstone put out a call for contributions for her collaborative flower power art project celebrating the history and artistry of crochet. I was so thrilled to collaborate with my mother on a small piece to send to the project. I wanted to give an update on that project here today.
I was just taking a look online at Intertwined (Handspun Revolution) by Lexi Boeger, a book that celebrates the yarn spinners across the world who create beautiful yarns for us to use in our crochet work.
International Freeform Crochet Guild members have created works of art inspired by music and art. The whole thing is online to see and also available in a print book.
Are you open to crocheting with no plan in mind or do you like to plan it out and follow a pattern?
I’m especially excited about a book I’ve discovered called Creative Crochet that I swear is an early resource for freeform crochet before anyone was calling it freeform crochet.
Today’s pick is a freeform crochet bikini made by stitching together freeform crochet patches and then enhanced with glass beadwork.
I’m celebrating the holidays by giving out blog awards as gifts here on Crochet Concupiscence. Each blogger I award is chosen for a specific thing that they do especially well! Today’s it’s freeform crochet.
