scrumble #33


A Valentine's Heart!

I didn't really start off with that in mind.

The initial circles bore no resemblance to a heart shape as they were joined; but when I added some random crochet lacy stitches around the edge of the circles it suddenly wanted to become that shape, so I built it up with the novelty yarn around the outside.

this one measures 25cm wide x 20cm deep

  4. Love your scrumbles! Each one is so unique and beautful. I'm a knitter, crochet only a chain stitch, so am really impressed with your creativity.

  6. Thanks, everyone. Jensters, a 'scrumble' is a random and unique freeform crochet or knit patch. The term was coined by UK art crocheters James Walters and Sylvia Cosh. Sferruzzatrice, freeforming isn't difficult at all, because anything goes. Take a look at my website - www.knotjustknitting.com - for a brief tutorial 'what is freeform'...any stitches can be used in this manner to build up your own unique freeform scrumble

  8. Hello Prudence, I love this Heart scrumble. I just bought your 2 PFD files on spiral and bullions. I do not understand the exact process of crochet bullions yet. Do you have a UTube tutorial or any other step by step visial on how to do the crochet bullions. Thanks Hugs judy

  9. sorry, nothing by me on Youtube, but if you work your way slowly through the words on pages 7 and 8 of the PDF tutorial, that will talk you through a method for making the bullions without getting the hook caught up in the coils.
