Humans have always created. Even in prehistoric societies where survival was precarious, people went beyond the utilitarian and added decorative elements to everyday things such as baskets and pots. Beauty didn’t make these items more useful, but it satisfied something in people’s souls. Even now we don’t fully understand what drives our creative impulses. We do, however, know that creativity can help our brains the way physical exercise helps our bodies. Research on cognitive activities (such as doing crossword puzzles) has confirmed what crafters have suspected all along: projects make us happier, and they build better brains. While planning a project or actually crocheting it, we might look inward—at memories, emotions, the desire to please a loved one with a handmade gift, the challenge of a new stitch—to stimulate our minds as our hands get to work. We might also look outward, thinking about crocheters who taught us and inspired us, using stitch motifs from the past, or borrowing color combinations from other cultures. If you like to crochet against a background of music, audiobooks, or television, there’s even more sensory stimulation thrown into the mix. Our brains might be busier than our hands as we crochet! Photo by George Boe Yet in the middle of all this busy-ness, there’s a quiet stillness where we’re making connections. New neural pathways form in our brains, offering multiple physical and psychological benefits. We connect to crocheters of the past, such as the nineteenth-century dowry-stitchers of Eastern Europe (page 54), and to present-day crafters around the world, such as Thai artist Patty Phuangkhum, who crochets amazing life-like flowers (page 57); NewYork based artist Olek, who covered a house in filet to challenge our notion of home in a world with 65 million refugees (page 4); and to the remote indigenous villages of South America, where people have inventively adapted crochet for their own needs (page 54). Yarn over hook and you’re part of this incredible family. In this issue of Interweave Crochet, we invite you to fully embrace all the ways crochet can ground us and connect us to each other. Through projects that surprise and delight, through skill-building (learn to read charts, page 12), and through the perspectives and stories of our crochet family far and wide, we hope you find your creative stimulation. And have a very peaceful new year. Yours in yarn, Lisa Shroyer ®

CROCHETGO! IMAGE BY KERAVA MUSEUM

Artist/activist Olek struck again in 2016—this time covering a 100-year-old house in Finland with hot pink filet crochet. The pink house is a symbol of hope in a war-torn world, a world in which, Olek asserts, “everyone should have a home.” Olek worked with Syrian and Ukrainian refugee women to create the crochet panels that cover the house; Red Heart donated the materials.

A Denim for Every Occasion Dana Bincer

Denim is one of my all-time favorite fabrics. These companies share my love of this comfortable fiber with yarns either made from recycled denim (see Wool and the Gang Billie Jean Yarn and Berroco Indigo) or dyed to look like my beloved textile (see Fibra Natura Denims, Cascade 220 Superwash Effects, and Ancient Arts Denim Collection). Whether you’re looking for true blue or something just a bit denim-y, you’ll find lots of options to sink your hooks into.

™ Fibra Natura / Denims (distributed by Universal Yarn)

It’s available in six stonewash denim colors.

COLOR: #6410—Relaxed HOOK: G / 6 (4.00 mm) flexible hook The white flecks give this 100% recycled yarn a bit of a tweed look. The soft cotton yarn has very little elasticity and comes in sixteen colorways, from traditional denim colors to colorful earth tones.

Afghan Hooks These long bamboo hooks come in two lengths: 9" and 13". Use the longer hook for projects with more stitches and/or heavier-weight yarn.

Flexible Hooks These short-handled hooks have a cable attached, which saves loops and allows you to work on wider projects. Available in lengths of 24" to 60". Circular Hooks If you’re working Tunisian in the round, you’ll want the circular hooks that have two short needles with a cable in between. Available in lengths of 16" to 40".

The Missing Piece A Mindfulness Excercise Kathryn Vercillo

Craft provides a safe space for practicing things that can be a little scary in the rest of life. It can be scary to deviate from the rules, to create the missing piece. It can be difficult to trust yourself to come up with creative solutions. By taking those chances in crochet, where it is safe, you build up your tolerance for the discomfort and become increasingly able to take those chances in the rest of your life as well. THE BASICS In this exercise, you will delete a portion of an existing crochet pattern and come up with your own original idea for crafting the missing piece. The goal is to help you come up with creative solutions to problems.

solution for the design of the missing rows, based upon your individual assessment of the “before” and “after” from the previous steps. Crochet these rows in whatever way feels right to you.

 

Once you have completed your original rows, pause and take a look at the work. Does it feel right? Do you like your colors? Did you choose stitches that seem to work? If you aren’t happy with it, pull out the work and crochet again. Repeat as necessary until your gut tells you that it works.

¡

Finish the rest of the pattern based on the instructions that follow the deleted portion where you have crocheted your missing piece.

¢

Take a look at your finished item. You have gone outside the box and created something new!

THE STEPS

™

š

›

Select a crochet pattern. For this exercise, the best choice will be a pattern that has a lot of variation over many rows rather than one that has an easy repeating stitch pattern. In addition, select a pattern where gauge doesn’t affect the final outcome too much, such as one for a scarf, washcloth, or blanket. Make a copy of the crochet pattern. You will be crossing out rows, so you don’t want to destroy the original, especially if it is in a book or magazine. If you are working with a pattern on your computer, duplicate it in a Word document or print it out. Randomly select a chunk of rows to delete from the pattern. It is best to avoid deleting the beginning or ending lines. Delete as many rows as you like, but for the first time with this exercise, start with just a few rows. You should cross them out so that you can see where they belong in the pattern but can’t read the instructions. A marker works well on paper copies; a thick black “fill” line works on computers.

œ

Crochet the pattern up to the part that you have deleted.



Pause. Look at the fabric that you have crocheted. Get a good sense of where this project is going.

ž

Read through all of the instructions that follow the chunk of the pattern that you deleted. Try to picture in your mind what the final item might look like.

Ÿ

Now, this is where we trust our intuition instead of the pattern. Come up with your own creative

10

Interweave Crochet • Winter 2017

Break away from the pattern. Here, the pattern starts with single crochet in the round and becomes a whimsical free-form design.

ADDITIONAL TIPS O Match your pattern choice to your skill level in crochet.

If you are a beginner, choose a beginner pattern. O Use yarn that can stand up to raveling and reworking. O Try simple substitutions. For instance, make half dou-

ble crochet stitches where the pattern called for single or double crochet. You will learn from the resulting difference in size. O Throughout this exercise and especially in Step 8, don’t be too hard on yourself. Your creative inclination may be at odds with the voice inside your head that might say your craft isn’t good enough. If you tend toward perfectionism, aim to let that go. You are creating, and the process is not always pretty.

beyond the basics

How to READ CHARTS Susanna Tobias

Crochet charts are a love/hate thing. Some crocheters insist upon them; others want just the written pattern, thankyouverymuch. We have found the perfect project to explore both options. Peter Franzi’s Wonderland Sampler Scarf showcases nine different crochet textures. So, whichever camp you’re in (or maybe you’re in a hybrid camp?), you will learn a rich handful of techniques. To get you started we’ve showcased the first stitch pattern you’ll encounter: the V and Post pattern. Take a look at the crocheted fabric, then at the chart. The chart is something like an X-ray, providing a visual representation of the stitchwork. The stitch key shows you the symbols for the type of stitch to make; refer to the written guide or glossary (pg. 75) for details on a given symbol/stitch. One of the first things you'll see is the title of the chart, often accompanied by the word "reduced." When you see this word, it means that, if you want to work from the chart, you'll encounter an abbreviated form of the pattern, one that includes repeat indicators. Then, you'll see the chart, showing stitches in black, blue and gray, some of which are highlighted in yellow; black and blue differentiate one row from the next, and the gray indicates stitches worked previously. The yellow highlights denote repeated stitches. Basically, what the pattern says with words, the chart says with symbols. This particular stitch pattern has a six-row repeat, which means that you will repeat the rows indicated by the brackets the number of times listed in the scarf pattern. After completing the listed number of repeats, you will work Rows 1–3 once more, as written in the scarf pattern (see pg. 15) before continuing on to the half double crochet front-loop-only pattern, which isn't charted due to its simplicity. We hope that as you crochet each section, you’ll become more comfortable with following charts. But no matter how you choose to crochet the pattern, we hope you’ll enjoy learning the new stitches and stitch patterns included in this delightful sampler scarf. SUSANNA TOBIAS is project editor for Interweave Crochet and Love of Crochet. 12

Notes Bag is worked in one piece using joined, turned rounds and the tapestry crochet technique. Handles are worked separately and then inserted in the top edging. Chain-3 at beginning of row counts as double crochet unless otherwise stated. Join rounds with slip stitch in top of beginning chain-3 unless otherwise stated.

Stitch Guide Tapestry double crochet (tapestry dc): Work dc, carrying unused color along top edge of sts from previous rnd. Crochet around unused yarn, encasing it with the sts. Make sure that the carried yarn does not constrict the sts. Every few sts after a color change, pull on the end of the carried yarn so that it’s not too loose, then pull on the fabric so that it’s not too tight. To change color, work to last yarn over in old color, pick up new color, and complete stitch with new color. Cross-stitch (cross-st): Sk next st or sp, dc in next st, working in front of last dc made, dc in sk st or ch-sp, working in front of dc previously made.

Crochet Spreads Around the World Dora Ohrenstein

In many parts of the world where crochet was known, cultural practices and economic realities did not resemble those of Victorian England. (For more details, see the Summer 2016 issue of Interweave Crochet.) In Eastern Europe, the Balkans, Russia, and Turkey, crochet became part of the dowry tradition, perhaps beginning in the late nineteenth century. Young women, upon leaving home to live with the families of their husbands, would bring a trunkful of handmade textiles. The young woman and her family would have spent many hours filling it with knitted socks and caps, embroidered tablecloths, linens edged with cutwork and crochet, and curtains of needle lace and crochet. Needle skills of all kinds thrived in these regions and were integral to everyday life. Stitches, ideas, and techniques circulated via avenues other than printed pattern booklets. Family and village traditions were shared through generations. Needlework schools for girls encouraged the making of samplers where stitches and designs were preserved and circulated. As in any folk craft, talent and inventiveness generated many new ideas. To create beautiful crochet, one needn’t have had professional training, only a visual imagination. In manuals published in England, certain stitches and techniques were given names associated with foreign countries, such as Tunisian crochet and Bosnian crochet. Research does not support their origins being in those places, however, and neither of these techniques is done in the regions for which they are named. It’s more likely that the names were applied by influential writers such as Thérèse de Dillmont, author of the Encyclopedia of Needlework (1886), because exoticism lent marketing value. The transmission of crochet traditions between these regions has not been studied and would make a fascinating inquiry.

Interweave Crochet • Winter 2017

MISSIONARIES SPREAD CROCHET The nineteenth century was characterized by European colonization on many continents, though the trend had begun hundreds of years before. Empire building included the introduction of Christianity by missionaries around the globe, from Africa to Asia to South America. Missionaries were charged not only with reforming religious practices, but also teaching native populations various skills that could help them economically. Crochet proved easy to teach and learn, and was very popular. An account written in 1916 in a publication called Woman’s Missionary Friend said, “Crocheted lace is becoming fashionable in the Hindy and Mohammaddan zenanas [inner part of house where women reside]. The bible reader who can teach crochet work is in great demand.” Many similar missionary journals document the spread of crochet to all parts of the globe beginning in the late nineteenth and lasting well into the twentieth century. The upshot is that in many parts of the world—including China, India, parts of Africa, and the Americas—crochet

was introduced not long after its invention in the early nineteenth century. In other words, crochet has been, almost from its start, an international phenomenon. In many places, crochet took the familiar form of lacemaking with thin cotton to produce doilies, trims on linens, and fancy collars for fashionable women as locals also took on Western cultural practices.

CROCHET ADAPTS TO CULTURES

Top: A Cameroon chief with his hair and beard adorned with burls. Left: Typical prestige hat with burls from Cameroon. Right: Everyday hats for Cameroon men.

The 1920 postcard (above) shows a Cameroon chief and his harem with spectacular hair arrangements, some elaborated with other materials; the image itself may well be from the nineteenth century. The chief is wearing a prestige hat with burls on each side, and burls adorn his beard as well. Cameroon crocheted hats can sometimes be found in galleries of traditional African art. The ashetu shown, from the Andres Moraga gallery (www.andresmoragatextileart .com), is a typical crocheted prestige hat. You can see other styles at www.bit.ly/ashetu and www.bit.ly/high-status-hat. Moraga’s gallery has several crocheted hats from Cameroon that are not prestige hats, but rather hats meant for everyday wear, typically in white and blue.

Yet there are also fascinating examples of crochet taking new, even startling forms as it came into use by non-Western peoples with very different textile traditions and ways of life. When seeking examples of the incorporation of crochet into traditional practices, none is more striking than the prestige hats made in Cameroon. Among peoples of Cameroon grasslands in western Africa, hats were items of great significance. A particular style of hat reserved only for elite males was called the ashetu or prestige hat. Originally woven out of raffia, these hats were often crocheted by the later nineteenth century. They fit snugly on the head and were covered with “burls”—fingerlike projections created by crocheting around bits of wood. According to the Cooper Union Museum in New York, the burls mimic the tufted hairstyle worn by men in Cameroon culture. (The Cooper Union Museum has another stunning example of this type of hat at www.bit.ly/hair-hat.)

feature In South America we see another fine example of crochet replacing traditional textile techniques in the vividly colored mochila bags, currently surging in popularity. The bags are made by people from two indigenous cultures, the Arhuaco and the Wayuu. Both live on the La Guajira peninsula, part of which belongs to Colombia and the other to Venezuela. These groups have preserved their way of life over many centuries and, until recently, were relatively isolated from modern life. Today, however, they are coming to global attention, in part because of their marvelous mochila bags. The bags by the Arhuaco are made in the traditional manner, handknotted from undyed, handspun wool. The bags by the Waayu are made with a crochet hook in vividly colored fibers, usually cotton. According to Fernando Menoyo, who imports both styles of bags to the United States, the geometric designs that adorn the bags are ancient symbols with multilayered references in their respective cultures. These bags are providing much-needed economic benefits to both tribes as they struggle to maintain traditional cultural practices.

Mochila bags are made by two indigenous cultures on the La Guajira peninsula in Colombia and Venezuela. The Waayu use bright colors, while the Arhuaco work with undyed, natural colors.

Yet another instance of traditional crafts meeting crochet are the breathtakingly lifelike flowers by Thai artisan Patty Phuangkhum. Their perfection has much to do with her training in a rather unusual Thai specialty: carving flowers out of fruit. She started learning floral crafts at age fifteen at Chiang Mai Vocational College, working with different materials to create and arrange flowers, and learning to carve roses out of watermelons and pumpkins. “This helped me appreciate their intricate detail and beauty, and it definitely helps me now when I design new flowers,” she says. This level of detail creates the lifelike quality of Patty’s crochet flowers. Patty works her flowers in thread, and sells her patterns on Ravelry under the name Happy Patty and at her website www.happypattycrochet.com. Perhaps nothing speaks to the ubiquity of crochet as grandly as the struggle to achieve a daunting goal: making the world’s largest blanket, an achievement recorded by Guinness World Records. Crocheters in Italy, South Africa, Japan, and India have all competed in the hope of gaining the coveted title. The fad began when Bernd Kestler, a German knitter living in Japan, launched the making of a blanket intended to help

victims of the country’s 2011 tsunami. The finished blanket measured 1,500 square feet, with 225 individual blankets of fifty squares each, and was entered as a Guinness World Record in 2014 as the world’s largest blanket. Just a year later, in South Africa, a blanket in honor of Nelson Mandela spanned more than 10,000 square feet and took over as the record holder. But the honor was short-lived: Mother India’s Crochet Queens, a Facebook group of 2,500, mobilized forces across India and North America to produce hundreds of blankets, each measuring 40 × 40 inches, which were joined to make one gigantic blanket measuring 120,000 square feet, about the size of two football stadiums. This gargantuan achievement entered Guinness World Records in January 2016 and thus far is unchallenged. The zeal behind these efforts seems almost a kind of madness, yet it speaks to the power of crochet today, its continued presence and popularity around the globe, the joy people take in it, and the power it has to bring people together.

Shattered Quartz Shawl Juliette Bezold

Manos Del Uruguay Serena (distributed by Fairmount Fibers)

Getting Started FINISHED SIZE 32" tall at widest point and 90" wide. YARN Manos Del Uruguay Serena (distributed by Fairmount Fibers) (60% baby alpaca, 40% pima cotton; 170 yd ): #S9710 [155 m]/1¾ oz [50 g]; alpine, 5 hanks. HOOK Size H/8 (5 mm) Tunisian hook with cable. Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge. NOTIONS Yarn needle. GAUGE 22 sts (5½ reps) and 18 rows (9 reps) = 4" in linear lace patt, unblocked; 16 sts (4 reps) and 14 rows (7 reps) = 4" in linear lace patt, blocked. See the Glossary on page 75 for terms you don’t know. For our master glossary, visit www.interweave.com.

Notes Shawl body is worked from skinny tip to wide tip, first increasing then decreasing at left edge. Border is then worked onto the left edge beginning with short-rows, with tapered tips and a mitered corner. The first loop on the hook always counts as a stitch; it is included in stitch counts and charts, but not referenced in instructions. Wet-blocking is essential to the final appearance of this shawl. It is required to obtain gauge and open up the lace pattern.

The Craft Yarn Council has set up guidelines to bring uniformity to yarn labels and published patterns. Yarn Weight: The yarn weight symbols that appear in “sources for supplies” are based on the system outlined above. We have consulted the yarn label, the manufacturer’s website, and other resources, to classify these yarns as accurately as possible. We continue to offer photos of each yarn to help you visualize the yarns used. *Guidelines only: The above reflect the most commonly used gauges and needle or hook sizes for specific yarn categories.

Crochet Gauge To check gauge, chain 30 to 40 stitches using recommended hook size. Work in pattern stitch until piece measures at least 4" (10 cm) from foundation chain. Lay swatch on flat surface. Place a ruler over swatch and count number of stitches across and number of rows down (including fractions of stitches and rows) in 4" (10 cm). Repeat two or three times on different areas of swatch to confirm measurements. If you have more stitches and rows than called for in instructions, use a larger hook; if you have fewer, use a smaller hook. Repeat until gauge is correct.

www.interweave.com Look for this icon to indicate bonus content at www.interweave.com.

Concentration Ratings: LITTLE CONCENTRATION REQUIRED. Straightforward stitching means your hands can work on autopilot. SOME CONCENTRATION REQUIRED. Easily memorized stitch patterns and minimal shaping might require some focus and counting.

PLUS SIZE

Look for this icon to indicate garments that include XL sizes.

FAIR AMOUNT OF FOCUS REQUIRED. Involved stitch patterns, shaping, or assembly require fairly constant concentration. EXTREME FOCUS REQUIRED. Unusual techniques or complex stitch patterns and shaping require constant focus.
