Thank you for pointing out tapestry crochet! Argh, another skill to master Wink

It does seem, though, that tapestry works better for larger areas of colour change, while this fair isle technique works equally well when you want to change colour for only one stitch.

I'm working on a picture tutorial, when it's up, I'll post a link here, too.

Thank you, everyone! Cheesy

I'll try to make a tutorial tomorrow, using an experiment with some more bright colours (easier to see the changes in yarns). I'll try taking photographs from the angle at which you'd look at it when working. You'll have to bear with me, as I'm not entirely up to speed with the terms (all self-taught XD)! I'll try to look them up, though.

Aww, thank you! Cheesy I like to mix some odd colours Cheesy

I'll try to take photos of the process, or have someone do that of me working, whichever turns out to be easier XD

Thank you! The only knit items I've managed so far, are scarves XD so I applaud anyone who does more Cheesy

Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've posted any projects, as I've not done anything particularly noteworthy of late.

Only recently, I've started experimenting with crocheted fair isle. I don't know about you, but I find knitting more complicated than crochet!

I looked around here, and didn't find anything similar, so I thought I'd share my little projects with you.

What I have so far ^

This is what it looks on the inside of the w-i-p (don't know what it's going to be yet!)^

Wrist warmer/cuff and cell phone cozy; basically the same pattern.

The work in progress is a pattern I'm putting together from random bits and pieces I've seen. It may become a legwarmer. I may grow bored with it and start something more colourful.

If anyone's interested in learning how it works, I could make a photo tutorial Smiley

EDIT: A tutorial is now availlable HERE!

A bit late, but: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=184172.0

Another craftster has posted this slightly different pattern, hopefully helpful.

I'm on my autumn break, and have some time; I could do it, if no one's turned up yet!

Wow, I'm away for a bit (bizzitiemz), and look what we have here! Lots of new and wonderful packages!

Especially love the Feegle, the Penny Patrician stamp, and the golem stamp Cheesy

Oh my word, everyone's work looks just amazing! Special love for the mini-Discworld, though! If I ever have the skill levels for something like that, I'd make many baby Discworlds and send them to my friends in eggs. Cheesy

"Where do you keep your valuables, Postmaster?"
"...In my hat?"


Love the mini-Feegles! Are they stitchmarkers or charms? Can't really tell.
