Have you ever tried colorwork crochet? This is a perfect piece to master the skill or show off your knowledge. This sweater is worked in Valley Yarns Northampton, which provides warmth and clear stitch definition, allowing the colorwork design to pop. It’s as fun to crochet as it is to wear.
Colorwork in crochet is a form of beautiful artwork. Each time I create the circular yoke I consider stopping there and framing it; it’s just so pretty. Many people ask me what level of crochet is a colorwork pattern. Most of the time, crochet colorwork is labeled advanced because of the new techniques introduced. However, I’ve seen beginner crocheters tackle colorwork by taking it step by step and watching the video tutorial.
Mastering the crochet colorwork craft takes time and patience, but do not be afraid to jump right in. With a few tips to get you started, it will end up being easier than you think.
Want to pick your own yarn colors? In the Fireside Collection Course & eBook there are printable charts to color in your own choices. It’s a great way to visualize different colors. Plus, you get all the other patterns in the collection as well! It’s a win-win.
The collection will be released either on the blog or through individual sales over the next few weeks. The Forest Brooks Crochet Beanie is the first one to release.
