Well, I’m not sure that the first scrumble is finished, but it feels like time to start the second one. I will probably go back to the first, eventually, for a few more small touches. Even though there are lots of different stitches in it, it is still quite small. When I have a better idea what the final piece is going to be, I will decide.
Today’s small thing is a crocheted spiral. This one is a bit more complicated than a basic spiral because it is made from three different yarns and three different stitches. I have used double crochets, half doubles, and 8-wrap bullions.
Spirals are tricky! One must basically build a road, walk on it right to the edge of the cliff, then build more road. If you look closely at the photo, above, you can see that I have walked the pink double crochets nearly to the edge of the Bullion stitch road. Next I will build more Bullion stitch road until I get close to the end of the gold half double crochets. Does that make sense?
There’s also a bit of a trick getting started. Would you like to know it? I’ll be happy to explain to all who ask!!
