Learning New Stitches

July 01, 2016

crochet tablecloths
I think one of the best ways to learn a new crochet stitch or pattern is with making something simple like tablecloths.

This way if I goof up, I'm not ruining a beautiful pattern like a shawl. And believe me, I rip out stitches and start over more than you would think! It is one of the frustrating things about fabric arts BUT I'd rather learn the right way to make the pattern and it comes out the way the designer intended it to.

When we put a lot of time and effort in our work, and sometimes even a lot of money, you don't want to get to the end and be disappointed that your final result isn't how you wanted it. Believe me, I've been there before and it's not a good feeling!

When I want to learn a new stitch, like for instance I just learned the granny ripple, I love making  squares so I can not only see how the stitches are created but I can also explore using different yarn colors as well as yarn weights. One important thing I've learned is that not all yarn types come out the same even when you're working with the same crochet hook size and following the pattern verbatim.
