It is just vertical stripes of single crochet in varying widths, inspired in part by traditional Amish bars quilts. Who knew crocheting would require so much yarn! I still have a lot to learn, but I like having a new way to busy my hands while the rest of me relaxes.
Do you crochet? If you know of any contemporary crochet blogs, beginner resources, tutorials etcetera, please share! I would be so grateful. The modern patchwork and sewing community is vast and thriving, but I am finding it more difficult to break into the parallel world of modern crochet--surely it exists!
Next time I take up a new craft, I must remember to start small.
