Learning Path #8: Crochet Finishing
Essential techniques that will make all your projects look perfect!
The sum of any crochet project is only as good as each individual stitch & technique used.
Properly finishing a crochet project is determined by how effective each detail is executed, and how polished your design appears. This course proves that a stunning project is not based on how long you've been crocheting, but in how your work is executed.
This course includes the following 4 lessons:
- Yarn Joins: Yarn Joins 101, Adding Yarn, Merging Yarn
- Stitch Beginnings: Foundation Stitches, Standing Stitches
- Borders & Edging: Stitch Ratio, Corners, Stitch Placement, Border Designs
- Blocking Basics: Blocking & Yarn 101, Methods, Took Kits
I learned to crochet before grade school, and have had a passion for the art ever since! I began designing patterns that appealed to my own style in late 2009, and my work has been published in various craft and crochet magazines ever since!
In late 2012 I formed the Design Wars Challenge, which is a network of independent crochet designers posed as a battle to be won in the crochet arena!
In 2014, I founded the American Crochet Association. We are dedicated to helping crocheters to help themselves.
Tidbits? I’m always up for a bit of traveling, I’m very fond of black licorice, I’m quite good at Scrabble, and I can do 10 push-ups!
