Tapestry Crochet

I am always on the lookout for new techniques and ideas when it comes to crochet and recently, I came across something called tapestry crochet. This technique will allow you to make the most beautiful and intricate designs – some can look very complex and you might think that they are for very experienced crocheters – but other than multiple colour changes, tapestry crochet is practically the same as normal crochet, using a single crochet as the main stitch, and using several colours of yarn at the same time.  So give it a try!

Here is my first attempt where I wanted to get a feel of the technique – the pattern I made up as I went long.  It’s a little bowl 🙂

Here is a link to some tips which will help you along the way:  https://shop.mybluprint.com/crocheting/article/tapestry-crochet-tips/

Now – I’m off to start my next tapestry crochet project – so stay tuned….

      Thanks! I have just printed off a pattern for the next one – but I think it waill wait till after Christmas. Keeping a constant tension is quite challenging with this technique I found – but will give it another shot. Good luck for when you try – and look forward to seeing your creations!
