I've been creating knitting and crocheting patterns for about 30 years and did it professionnaly for yarn manufacturers for a while. You can see some of my work on my blog : www.sophiegelfi.frView all patterns by designer (30) »
I wrote this tuto to help you to begin freeform crochet. You'll see how you can add extentions to a circle motif so that you can make a freeform crochet scrumble. You'll know how to navigate from one point to another, and begin a new stitch, as well as how to add texture to a simple crochet stitch.
It contains 16 pages including 30 step by step photos as well as written instructions to show you how to achieve this scrumble.
A crochet beginner knowing only basic stitches can easily obtain a good result.
Pattern is written in US term and in french.
This tutorial represented a lot of work for its realization and conception. The designing of patterns and the redaction of written directions as the sale of the yarns and notions are my job and my only income. So please, respect my work.
