I'm working on an afghan without using a pattern. Is that kind of what you mean?

I'm hoping it turns out how I want it to, but I guess only time will tell! Smiley

I do with slouch hats. I have all kind of them haha some are heavy, some are skinny and long, super slouchy. It's fun and quick so I never leave them unfinished.

I'm working on a couple art pieces using freeform crochet. It feels really awesome to not have to be methodical and repetitive!

Sometimes I just grab a hook and some yarn and "doodle" something.

I used to make a bunch of ad hoc crochet things for people: cup cozies, radio/iPod holders (with elastic strap to use when jogging), art supplies cases, and a Native American fellow asked me to make a holder with some pretty intricate color patterns for one of his ceremonial feathers. I think that making things without a pattern, or using a different pattern as a rough guide, is a lot more rewarding than following a pattern step-by-step. Mind you, though, I always write down all the steps for my made-up stuff for the next time I need one!

I love freeform crochet. Recently finished my first freeform crochet project...a 36" diameter rug. Here is a link to my freeform rug.                 http://www.flickr.com/photos/tiamia1/8646335200/
