Anyone can do free-form crochet, because gauge, pattern, and yarn weight don't matter; you ignore all rules! You can make a hat, a scarf, a purse, a wall hanging, or whatever appeals to your creativity. Just mix and match yarns to crochet a variety of shapes in whatever colors and textures you wish; then glue, sew, or crochet these "scrumbles" together in a form that pleases you. You can even "reupholster" old purses, eyeglass cases, makeup bags, and pillows with scrumbles. To help you get started, designer Pamela Pease shares instructions for her favorite scrumble shapes. Once you're comfortable with the idea of fashioning your own scrumbles, have fun following your impulses to invent original designs with dimension and style!
