One Small Thing x 43

I ended, last time, contemplating this aspect of the piece. (Sorry it’s so dark! That was the day it was snowing and sleeting right after the 70 degree day…..).  I’m still thinking this will be the back neckline of something.

After adding rows of single crochet (through the back loop) and one little popcorn, I noticed that it was fitting nicely into this spot.

image

A little bit of 1/1 ribbing in orange, and I’m ready to attach the piece.

image

Checking out some color possibilities, and settling on this burgundy.

image

Stripes of burgundy and blue/purple popcorns fill this irregular space nicely.

image

Lots more rows of single crochet tbl make an interesting edge.

Moving on, for a moment, there are always rough places that bug me. I don’t like the abruptness of this pink triangle, so I first add a fuzzy yellow fluffle on the left and begin a raised single crochet  line on the right (below).

I added a couple picots on the raised single crochet edge, but the pink seems boring. So, out it goes.

image

 Let’s try some turquoise, instead. That’s better!

Another little raggedy edge to fix, below.

Done for the day!

    Hi Dolores, I am sorry I don’t speak Spanish. I hope you can translate…In order to make anything with Freeform “fabric”, the easiest way is to use a garment you like as a template. If you have a shawl you like, just spread your freeform pieces out on it until it’s full, then sew them together. It’s easiest if you don’t make your pieces too large. Try to keep the individual pieces about the size of your hand. Be sure to make lots of interesting shapes! They’ll fit together like puzzle pieces.

    I hope this helps. I know you will have fun!! Gretchen
