(26x12 in, 66x30 cm)
This piece was created for the 2014 International Freeform Crochet Challenge.
The theme for 2014's
challenge was One Color. I like to play with words and numbers as well as fiber.
Once I picked purple, the phrase "purple power" ran through my head.
That led naturally to "power of two" and thus was born my idea for
this piece: restrict the parameters beyond one color. Will it still look and
feel like freeform?
I crocheted in rows only, and the number of stitches in every row is a power of two. Only chain and back loop single crochet stitches were used.
Did it feel like freeform as I made
it? Yes and no. Oddly, restrictions freed me in some ways: I didn't suffer as
much from indecision. And yet, at times I got a little annoyed at having to
follow rules. Does it look like freeform? You tell me!
