More crochet samples and tutorial links

Fingerless Gloves

Last week, I shared some tutorial links with you and some sample pieces that I made to try out various stitches. I used to crochet a LOT when I was much younger, but I haven't for awhile, so my fingers needed to get back in practice.  I think it's a really good idea to "cross-train" on different art forms from time to time, don't you? :-)

Here are a few of the pieces that I ended up obsessively compulsively diligently making over January and February when I was so sick.  It felt good to just hunker down and stitch away.


I've been doing my own version of this hyperbolic spiral form to make a scarf, shown directly above and also on last week's post in brighter colors.

Ribbing...





Dragon scarf
My suggestion is that you use a very soft yarn for this one.  I used yarn that was stiffer, because I though it would hold the shape better, but each of the points rolled so badly that I finally ended up taking the whole thing apart.  A super-soft yarn just lies limp and the points don't curl.
