At halfway through Spring is a good time for Crochet Design to see how the changes occurring with the weather as well as those changes within the British economy now a decision has been made with Brexit, are having on crochet.
The beauty of crochet is its ability to calm people as they work on a project, particularly one that has repetitive pattern. Then the rhythm of hook allows the crocheter to relax and enjoy being creative without having to tax the mind. At the other end of the scale crochet designs can be extremely complex requiring mental application especially when marrying another craft with it. The joy of simple or complicated crochet as it grows into what is wanted, is so satisfying.
The one-day and weekend workshops are ideal for those needing a refresher course, or simply to get started. During one of these weekends at the end of last year, a small group of students began looking at books I had written over 30 years ago. This group requested I made the patterns available and so they are now responsible for a new range of in-house books: VINTAGE – Pauline Turner originals
I began with “Sleeveless Tops” containing 6 patterns. Reading through each pattern carefully I was surprised at the detailed information included along with many other crochet tips. Obviously, the way of writing is a little ‘old-fashioned’ and some of the yarns are no longer available, and therefore I produced additional notes for each pattern giving suggestions for yarns etc. The designs themselves are dateless.
