Sculptural Crochet Primer

Here SuperNaturale features a curiosity cabinet of crochet figures, thus illustrating the basic elements which combine to form sculptural crochet.Much like a traditional Wunderkammer, the pieces are divided into subgroups, each of which explores a certain variable.I'm struck by the beauty obtained by using simple stitches and one color to make a striking, strangely biologically-evocative piece of artcraft. It's obviously left me with a loss for words.

Existing Crocheted Instructables

I know there are so many cool instructables already out there about crocheted things. Anybody want to share any for inspiration for the contest? I love my muppets: https://www.instructables.com/id/A_Crocheted_Tribute_to_Dr_Teeth_and_the_Electric_/ They're actually on display at the American Textile Museum right now. And I did make Animal, I just haven't photographed him yet.

Not your grandma's crochet

I just discovered the artwork of Patricia Waller. She seems to mostly make stuffed crocheted items, but despite the bright cheerfulness of the first glimpse, the content is weird, spooky, gruesome, or otherwise unexpected. These are no lace doilies!Some of my favorites are the hermit fairy, man-eating tiger complete with bleeding arm, and the slightly annoyed-looking roasted pig. There are lots more. I can't decide whether I'm more impressed with the bizarre subject matter or the remarkable detail.

The Secret to Better Crochet Design

I love this article by Robyn Chachula on how to take a beautifully patterned granny square design and turn it into a lovely garment of any shape or size.  Her use of post-it-notes to represent each square is genius, and makes the process dead easy for us visual-types.  Check it out!  It's too easy not to try. via: crochet me

Where does a double crochet and half double corchet stitch start/end?

I recently picked up crocheting, and ran into the issue that I do not know where a HDC or DC stitch starts or ends. I have a pattern I'm working on that has a piece that is mostly HDC from the top to the bottom. Once the part is done, you have to do a single stitch around the entire part. Issue is: I don't know where to pick up to get a stitch on a half double crochet. I know it's a touch confusing, but I don't know how else to explain it. Hopefully it makes enough sense. Thanks in advance!

Can someone tell me if I'm crocheting correctly? Answered

So I'm trying to make some arm-warmers and I'm making my own pattern.  The pattern I have so far is: 43 ch 3 turning chain 42 dc 3 turning chain But when I'm doing it the pattern is curling on itself. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.  Also note that I'm really green to crocheting so I'm probably just doing something I'm not understanding. So if you don't know, then could you please give advice on the basics? or link to something similar? Thank you!
