Most associate this process with Prudence Mapstone. I first learned of the technique now known as freeform crochet in the 1980’s as a follower of James Walters and the late Sylvia Cosh. The technique involves making “doodles” or pieces (now called scrumbles) of various shapes, sizes, stitches and textures; then joining the pieces to form a garment, sculpture or design. Freeform Crochet liberates you from following traditional knit and crochet patterns. Rather than step by step instructions, This pattern provides guidelines to escort you through the process of making scrumbles that are unique and beautiful alone. But when joined or connected, even a beginner can experience the beautiful wearable art pieces that are born.
