Sculptural Crochet

Crochet is a constructed textile technique that uses a hook to form an interlocking chain structure. When crocheting, you only have one live stitch on your hook compared to a whole row of live stitches on your needle when knitting. Because of this, multidirectional, freeform and sculptural fabrics are simple to execute. In this workshop you will learn to create various three-dimensional shapes that may be used alone or to build up larger structures.

Prerequisites

  • Comfortable with beginner crochet, including: chaining, slip stitch, single crochet, double crochet.
