Freeform, anyone?
Last night at my SNB a new lady showed up and she does lots of free form work...anyone else into freeform? Anyone got pictures of their stuff to share??

I wish. Freeform is something I want to learn at some point, though I feel pretty positive I'd be doing it mostly in crochet.

This lady did it combo--she had some knit and some crochet....I'd have to do a combo approach too..

Hi Cristi,

Does "free form" refer to work like some of Debbi New's creations? Mathematical knitting; eg, use of random number generators to create "non-patterns"?

I have made many wall hangings that I thought were free-form; ie, I used no pattern, sketch, or model. Is that "free-form" knitting?

Hmm. I guess I'm just a pattern kind of girl, because those things didn't appeal to me at all (with the exception of one of the wall hangings).

I'd not heard of it before, but after following those links, I practically had to pick my jaw up off the floor

That stuff is stunning! It's so organic, and absolutely beautiful. I used to do drawings kinda like that in my school workbooks all the time... I'd really like to give this a try in the future. I'm gonna have to try again with the crochet, I think... :thinking:

They're artistic, yeah, but probably something i wouldn't get into
I look at the wall hangings and wonder how many spiders could hide in there

Well, this is my first attempt at freestyle knitting. It's still a little too much "by-the-book." I hope to get more emotional, organic, as I experiment in breaking the rules. I also have this posted in the knit-along section, with a bit more explanation.
