This week's challenge for the 52 Week Crochet Challenge is a really good one for me. I had to find a small pattern with a stitch chart and crochet it. Working from a stitch chart is something I've always wanted to learn but have never really tried. I see so many beautiful crocheted items, but when I find there's only a chart and no written pattern, I turn away from them.
I chose a very small, very easy stitch chart to follow. This is motif #36 from Beyond the Square Crochet Motifs by Edie Eckman. It does have a written pattern with it, but I did my best to only use the stitch chart. It wasn't too difficult; I got stuck only a couple of times. I think I'll try to make some more motifs from the book using only the charts.
Do you prefer written instructions or a stitch chart?
Thanks for reading.
