DE­SIGNER TECH­NIQUES PART 2

Fol­low­ing on from last is­sue’s rev­e­la­tions, we asked ve more in­spir­ing de­sign­ers to share the tech­niques that proved to be the turn­ing points in their cro­chet. PART TWO

Simply Crochet - - CONTENTS -

We’ve been blown away by the sto­ries we’ve gath­ered from cro­chet de­sign­ers over the course of this two-part fea­ture on tech­niques and turn­ing points. Dis­cov­er­ing th­ese tal­ented in­di­vid­u­als’ ‘light­bulb mo­ments‘ has been eye-open­ing for us too. Whether th­ese dis­cov­er­ies came at the begin­ning or more re­cently in their cro­chet ca­reers, even for the hardi­est hook­ster, there are al­ways new tech­niques and sources of in­spi­ra­tion to add to their reper­toire.

WE’RE IN THIS TO­GETHER

While there’s so much value in a per­sonal jour­ney, there’s plenty of sup­port to be had in the craft­ing com­mu­nity, too. A Boy and Bunting’s Matt Farci is an ad­vo­cate of push­ing him­self and reach­ing out to the cro­chet com­mu­nity for sup­port. “The more ad­ven­tur­ous you are with your mak­ing, the quicker you will de­velop. I’ve al­ways found that if I do hap­pen to get stuck, there are a ton of peo­ple very ea­ger to help out a fel­low crafter.” So­cial me­dia, on­line fo­rums and groups, knit­ting nights and craft­ing events are a great place to start.

Dis­cov­er­ing chart­ing was a rev­e­la­tion for Eleonora Tully; it helps her de­sign her filet cro­chet projects.
