An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever
Friday, August 12, 2016
Now that I've finished the blankets, I've been spinning cotton in the evenings, for my crochet cushion. I'll have to decide on a pattern before I wind this into skeins, so I can estimate how much of each colour I'll need to dye.
While browsing for patterns, I've come across a new (to me) crochet term - overlay crochet. There's a very good tutorial here. It involves having stitches 'overlaid' on a background, the background and the overlaid pattern being worked at the same time. I might just have to see if I can incorporate it in my cushion!
