Jean made these baskets using the Bavarian technique. If you like color work, front and back posts, and don't mind doing a lot of treble crochet, consider this technique. The post stitches make an interesting texture on the front of the project. Wouldn't it be interesting to try felting these baskets? Would the finished product be textured? How would the colors work out? Explore the possibilities!
This picture doesn't do Joy's neck warmer justice. It's rectangle that buttons in front and snugs up behind the neck. The fringe spreads out in a most attractive way.
Amigurumi is popular with crocheters. Lisa made this little hedgehog. The fuzzy "hair" has a bit of sparkle in it.
Lisa made a hat and scarf out of a self-striping yarn. The hat is crocheted "flat" and the fluffy loops are crocheted on after the hat base is done. The yarn color changes make it look as though many different skeins were used, but actually, the effect comes from a single variegated yarn. How different the subtle color changes appear in the matching scarf. When you see the hat and scarf together, you know they are indeed made from the same yarn.
