Hi, all.  I'm new here.  I just started a crochet art project and am blogging about my progress here:


I know some crochet basics but am more or less learning how to do this as I go...

Are there any other crocheters out there making artsy-type stuff?  I have an artist friend here in Houston who does crochet artworks, and I'd love to find out what other folks are doing.

Thanks to everyone who's dropped by so far!

I'm wondering whether anyone knows of a crochet pattern for a ski mask?  I'm sort of making this up as I go, and it would help to see what a basic pattern looks like.

Hi, good luck with your project - crochet is awesome for art since it can be shaped in so many 3-D ways and can be very free-form.

Here is a ski mask pattern: http://www.geocities.com/justauntb/skimask.html

I also suggest that you take a look at A New Look at Crochet: Using Basic Stitches to Create Modern Designs by Elyse and Mike Sommer (New York: Crown Publishers, Inc., 1975, ISBN 0517516071). The book concerns crochet artwork of the 1970s and give inspirational examples of creating garments (can be adapted to body shapes) out of free-form crochet pieces.

You can try this link to see if it's in a library near you: http://www.worldcatlibraries.org/wcpa/top3mset/1c4c6da58782209f.html

Good luck! I am not primarily a crocheter, but I have done a bit of "patternless" crochet before so  I think your project is really neat and will look for updates as you go along.

Thanks for the pattern and encouragement, Lucy!  I'll look into the book, too--it sounds right up my alley.
