2020 update

I guess I have neglected my blog in favour of my Facebook page and fb group which are both getting further reach and becoming a buzzing social scene for Latch Hook Crochet. I have been preoccupied with trying to learn all the technical knowhow to advertise this hobby, especially during lockdown. After the successful drop in workshops last year which convinced me that kids just love making chains and flowers with a latch hook then I needed to press on with my passion to make this work. I also was inspired by the 700 + people that became members of … Continue reading 2020 update

Using variegated yarn… 2019 update! How to use variegated yarn in your Latch Patches

note date of this post. I was still experimenting here, but using own self made variegated yarn has become an essential part of teaching Latch Hook Crochet. Kids can see what is happening in their work better and also young ones enjoy the next colour yarn coming up!! This one shows up the stitches a bit better, but I still think longer stretches of colour? Bullion stitches have been introduced here as an easy stitch, using a latch hook. Still playing with variegated yarn. I am happy that this one shows up the puff stitch. Also on the ‘petal’ shapes, … Continue reading Using variegated yarn… 2019 update!

Variegated yarn (2017 !)

This is an example of a scrumble jumble.(now a latch patch) Using easy stitches, chain, slip stitch, and puff stitch.(puff stitch introduced in book two)It is not intended to be a work of art, more of a way of learning Freeform for absolute beginners. I have been looking at using variegated yarn because it is easier to see what is happening. In this first trial I used mostly lengths of yarn about 18 inches long. I think longer would be better. How long? I made variegated yarn using magic knots. See utube video. It was good to see that the … Continue reading Variegated yarn (2017 !)

Adding a new colour

HOW TO ADD A DIFFERENT COLOUR YARN TO YOUR SCRUMBLE No rules here at all. Attatch it any way you like! Kids may like to tie it on to the scrumble or tie it to the end of the previous colour. You may hook it through your scrumble anywhere and and leave an end to come back to. You could hook it through and double up the yarn. Hook it through and pull through two loops. No rule. At the moment do what works for you. Continue reading Adding a new colour

Scrumbling/Latch patch

December 2018 Update I will now be referring to a scrumble as a latch patch. Similar to a scrumble but worked with a latch hook. Scrumble jumbles are fun. Your first scrumbles will look odd. I attempted to teach my 4 year old granddaughter how to crochet a scrumble. However the yarn over was loose. But she fiddled about with pretending to yarn over and in a very fiddly manner kept threading the end of the yarn through holes. Her idea. There wasn’t a lot to it , a little bundle of coloured yarn which we made together. Imagine my … Continue reading Scrumbling/Latch patch
