Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of Arm Knitting but I suck at knitting. I can do simple things and arm knitting is beyond me. I end up in a tangled mess of yarn. I am good at knotting yarn!
I’ve done finger crochet before but then I realized that there’s no reason why I can’t hand crochet. I even had the perfect yarn for it!
Novelty yarn often is a pain to work with; eyelash, pompom, fun fur just to name a few. While they look great they can be mindbogglingly frustrating.
At first I hit on the idea to finger crochet it. My fingers would make a nice large hook to work with. This however still didn’t work out. I found that the material was just too dense and had no drape. I might as well be crocheting a cardboard box!
That’s when I decided to try using my hand like in arm knitting.
It was a resounding success!
The fabric has drape and showcases the highlight of the yarn; the novelty effect it has. Thanks to a super talented photographer friend I even have pictures worthy of my mad creations.
