Every knitter or crocheter will get to a point where they want to make tweaks to a project so that it becomes more personal to them.
Tweaks can involve anything from changing the yarn colour through adding a surface pattern to doing a resize or changing an element of the design so that the finished product fits better.
I’m going to write a series of posts that will start with the very simple tweaks that novices can make, up to hints and tips for the experienced yarn crafter who really wants to make a pattern their own.
Over the coming weeks we’ll explore everything from experimenting with colour, tension swatching, yarn maths, swapping brands of yarn and adding details, including beads.
Starting from the basic knitted or crocheted square, we’ll take a journey through homewares, accessories and garments with free patterns for you to experiment with along the way.
