    Blocking filet crochet?

    Okay, so what I'm going to do is wet-block it as I normally do and possibly starch it a little for it to hold shape. I also loved this idea. This way we won't have to eat on the floor for two days in my house because I'm using all the table I've blocked shawls before but they were made with yarn so I wasn't sure if this was the same. I will come back with the results Thank you all for your crochet wisdom.

    Bridal veil

    This reminded me of a pattern I saw on Ravelry a while back although I think is not done with thread.

    Blocking filet crochet?

    Hi, thank you for your answers. Here you can see my project with more detail. Sorry for not giving enough information, I used Cebelia DMC thread size 10. I'm not sure about starching (never done it before), wouldn't it be too stiff afterwards? I too believe I would have to pin every litte point for it to look great.

    Hi guys! I just finished my first filet project (take a look here) and I would like to know if there's a recommended way of blocking this kind of garments and if you have any tips. Thank you in advance for your help

    Kokiri Case

    Hi! I'm going to leave here a case for an Ipad or any other device, it's customizable to the width and height you need. It's an easy design and you can add an appliqué made with jacquard technique of a Kokiri Shield (there's a link to that inside the pattern). It's my first pattern and I would love to have some feedback in case someone chooses it as a project The pattern is available in English and Spanish. Thank you!

    Pattern design tips?

    Thank you for the links! You're right, I think I would need to decide if I want to make patterns for beginners or for intermediate-advanced crocheters. I think beginners are grateful for images but any other person it's okay with a link to a video explaining rare stitches. Do you have any suggestions for making visual patterns? Thanks

    Hello from Spain :)

    Thank you!
  11. Hi! I just started designing my own patterns and I'd like to know some tips from people who have more experience. Right now I just want to share, not sell but I feel really insecure about people misunderstanding them. I don't know if maybe I should start sharing easy level patterns before moving to more difficult ones, or if maybe I should share them as tutorials with images or videos. I also would love to share them in written version but also in visual patterns. What do you suggest to make sure people understand my patterns? Thank you for your comments !

    Hello from Spain :)

    My name is Karol and I'm living in Spain*. I just learned to crochet last year but I really love it. I actually set up a Etsy store to sell some things and a blog where I translate to Spanish some patterns. My new goal is to write some patterns and share them with the community. I hope I can learn even more and I can get along with people that share my hobby. Nice to meet you! *Edit: Not from Spain, living here but I'm from Colombia.
