SOPHIE DIGARD STYLE CROCHET

Crochet playtime with variegated sock wool in a Sophie Digard style
Still experimenting but heading in the right direction...
The 1st teeny tiny square one l tried has velvet centre's so l've used an acrylic to give a more solid look and then used the sock yarn to do the square edge and joining, bit darker than l wanted but a WIP
Recognise the florally looking one?...it's the Star Pattern from last week

l'm using a 4mm hook (slightly bigger than l should be using..a 2.5 experiment still to come) and a single strand of Grundl Hot Socks Pastello
Shock horror very fine work for me hehe...the chunky lover that l am, but l have to say l'm quite enjoying the teeny's again, the Star pattern makes up quite quickly..going to make some lovely Christmas presents l hope


Have a wonderful weekend everyone
Hugs to all xx

  1. I had a very quick look at Sophie Digard's website. It seems very interesting what she does, and also right up your alley with the multiple strands (albeit tiny) she works with.
    Thanks for your comments on my new blog.

  4. Hi Suz,
    Looks like your getting your house uptogether now. How long have you to wait before you can paint or paper your walls? Love the crochet your doing now. I have not had time to do any crafting of late. must get my hand back in and create something.
