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
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.
