Designing Off the Cuff

I have been working on a fun, little Tunisian crochet project – designing a hat inspired by the Premium Cable scarf pattern by Sharon Silverman. I have taken sort of a freestyle approach and have let my hook talk to me as I stitch. Normally, I plan out my designs, working out all of the math first on graph paper. Of course, the freestyle approach is risky. Quite frankly, it could be disastrous in the end, but it is so liberating to just let the creative process take shape as you go along. Luckily for me, I am happy with how it is turning out so far and I love the yarn, Mirabella by Tess’ Designer Yarns (an angora/merino blend). Best of all, this is for just me and there are no worries nor any pressure with this one.

Happy Stitching!
