It was a real revelation for me because eventually I understood how it works.
But unfortunately my fingers are much to clumsy for this technique – or I am too impatient ;-)
Beaded Crochet Rope
Since I have found this knot at Bead-Patterns.com my self-made items look much more better. The knot is easy, fast and slim, it is almost invisible and I use it nearly everywhere: to connect the yarns at knitting and crocheting and to connect threads while beading.
I enjoy working freeform, that means that I don’t know how the crafted item will look in the end.
Although the choice of materials gives me a pretty good idea about the general appearance ;-)
One amazing application for freeform is needlework, just freeform crochet or freeform knitting, but I prefer doing both on the same item.
Once I wrote a (german) tutorial that can be found at creadoo: Faszinierendes Freeform.
A very good english tutorial can be found at knotjustknitting.com while clicking on ‘what is freeform’ in the navigation list.

Not long ago I found a crocheted Cloche style hat at my favourite crafter site craftster.org.
I really love those crocheted hats and one day I’ll make one ;-)
