Freeform Crochet with Confidence aims to inspire creativity and, through each project, encourage you to develop and find your own individual style. The projects are almost like serving suggestions just waiting for you to add a sprinkle of imagination and a touch of inspiration to make each design your own.
The book has been designed to be accessible for both beginners and more experienced crafters, so whether you are starting out on your creative journey or want to brush up on existing skills there is something for all levels, with tips and hints for each design on how you can explore different possibilities. Step-by-step instructions for all the techniques and projects are included, along with embellishment ideas that will bring each project to life.
Crochet is the perfect craft to explore working in a freeform style, with so many techniques and stitches we are spoilt for choice. Fabrics are made up of smaller motifs that can be sewn, stitched, crocheted, or layered up to make a larger piece. Each chapter is broken down into different types of freeform motifs: Spirals and Circles; Organic; Openwork and Lace; Patchwork and Squares; and Fillers, Trims and Embellishments.
