2016 is the year of new designs for me! Yay. Designing is the thing I love doing most with crochet. If there was such a thing as a mind reading publishing machine and I didn’t have to write, photograph, edit, test and publish, you’d see at least one new design every day. I would do it all day every day if I could.
But the reality is, I have a family and other life stuff to do and the things that come after designing take a very long time. All this meant in 2015, I didn’t do as much designing as I would have liked and so my personal #52weeksofcrochetdesign project was born.
Each week, I am setting aside time to just design with no rules other than a 6″ square as the end result. This means I can experiment and play without having to think about other folks doing it too. None of these patterns will be available until 2017.
I’ll be sharing each week’s design on Instagram under the #52weeksofcrochetdesign tag.
Here are my first 4 designs from January. I eased in to it with a simple one to start out.
The second week, I got a little bit experimental and did a fair bit of tweaking between my first and last prototype. I am really happy with the corners in this one.
The third week I experimented with a different way to start. I love it!
The last week of January, I created this super duper textured block. It’s so thick! A blanket made with it would be so warm. Maybe one day. I also found a different way to give the same look as working into the lbv.
So there you have it. Which one is your favourite? I think 2016 is going to be loads of fun
