Right In the Middle

I have just arrived at the middle point of my tablecloth (I hope), but I am not ruling out adding more rounds If I feel like it. The fun part of designing as you go is that you don’t have a “right or wrong way” of doing a pattern it is more like ad libbing which suits me fine. I must confess something to you, please keep it between just you and me: I did not learn to read “crochet” I can look at a pattern and decipher it but for the life of me I cannot go step by step with the written part, I guess it is some form of Crochet Dyslexia, but it suits me fine because I do enjoy being creative once in a while.

So far I’ve used up 5 spools of  classic 10 thread delft color. Coats and Clarke make both of the brands I am using so they are no variations in color.

The theme is just pineapples, in all forms and sizes, I hope I create a decent looking tablecloth.ImageImageImageImage

  3. Nice! I remember my mother making motifs for a tablecloth. One of these days I’ll work with thread again … I’ll keep looking at your blog to inspire me. And I ad-lib on my patterns all the time, even though I start off following the pattern! LOL !

  4. This is amazingly delicate! I’m not great at reading patterns either, but I think half the fun is making things up isn’t it?! Can’t wait to see it finished 🙂

  5. This is stunning! A written pattern for something this complex would be a menace. can you read the European patterns, which are written out in symbols?

    • No, I have never seen a European pattern written in symbols but then again I don’t think I could follow it either, I need to see a photo or better yet have it in my hands. And thanks, the size of the thread helps, lol…
