by Tracey Waller - as published on Ezine Articles 

There are 5 things you should know about Freeform Crochet that could inspire you to give this wonderful concept a try. It is certainly making a comeback, among the artistic works that we are seeing emerge from home industry workers. It is considered to be the abstract arts of yarn creating, and when you get further into the actual logistics of the craft, you will soon see why.

Firstly, it is easy to do! Yes, it is all in your imagination and no one has a right way or a wrong way of executing Freeform Crochet. To that end, there is very little available in the way of structured patterns, which can be confusing for those wanting to give it a try.

Secondly, Freeform Crochet is very achievable. Consider each piece that you start, as a blank canvas. It is a growing, moving piece of art, that can be as big or how small as you desire. It gives the creator enormous scope with which to join clusters of texture and color together to form unlimited variations with ones imagination being its only limit!

Thirdly, Freeform Crochet has little or no structure so the creator has complete artistic license over their finished piece. it can be a mix of yarns and fibers, bringing a conglomerate of luxurious textures and forms together, or it can be as minimal as one basic fiber in one basic color.

Fourthly, It has such universal appeal that by looking at other pieces, we can glean inspiration and ideas from other Freeform Crochet artists. Interspersing knitted pieces into the growing fabric makes for an interesting finish that most Freeform Crochet artists aspire to ensuring originality and uniqueness!

The fifth thing you should know about Freeform Crochet, is that every piece is beautiful. You cannot make a mistake and you cannot go wrong. You can start with a basic circle with some already acquired stitch repertoire, or you can "wing it" with an array of experimental designs. colors and textures.

Whichever way you decide to tackle this incredibly clever crochet technique, one thing is for sure, you will soon become addicted to its versatile and enchanting product, and be truly breathing life back into all your scraps of yarn!

until next time, get freeforming, the sky is the limit!!
