I spent most of 2018 updating my easy crochet ideas in the form of my first book ‘Latch Hook Crochet for Beginners’. As I write this I am waiting for the mail to deliver my first print copy for inspection by me. I keep telling Phil I am 99% sure it will be fine. At this stage I don’t want to find any major goofs!
Anyway my ideas have evolved a bit sinse I last blogged so I have been trying to update some of the terms I now use. I won’t go into it too much here but I am hoping to generate some interest in my idea of using a latch hook to learn how to crochet. For some it really works and hopefully the book will show how it can be an enjoyable and easy hobby.
Instead of using the brilliant and inspiring term ‘SCRUMBLE’ (originators Sylvia Cosh and James Walters)I am calling the latch hooking equivailant a LATCH PATCH. In previous posts I referred to experimental scrumbles as SCRUMBLE JUMBLES as to the untrained eye they can appear odd. However I have found that by adding a couple of eyes these first experimental latch patches can become a cute ‘Beasty Brooch’.
