What are you most proud of? I had originally intended to make this for myself as a Beach Coverup. But as I was making it, I was approached and ended up with a customer! I customized the size for her and sold the finished item for $500. Since then, I have made and sold several more similar freeform pieces.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just LET GO and the creative juices will flow! I began this with a bag of scraps with NO Expectations. I turned the scraps into interesting Motifs, then began "connecting the dots" so to speak with one of my favorite crochet threads to form a solid background.

Hi All and thanks for visiting my Projects. This was a freeform project and way too complex to write a pattern for it. I have since made several similar to this starting out with interesting freeform motifs and then joining them with a main color with chains and sc's. The way I do them now is to use a paper pattern for the basic shape of front, back and sleeves. Then I construct my freeform pieces using the paper pattern pieces as a guide. I love working with asymmetrical shapes so the sleeves never match, and the length for front and back is always a bit skewed.
