Crochet Diploma – Module 4

Afternoon everyone I have just completed Module 4, Beyond the basics but before I continue I would like to say that I passed both modules 2 and 3, YAY.

This module covered Joining new colours to a project and different methods of doing this, now when I very first started to crochet I did the big No-NO, yes I admit I used to tie a knot in the yarn (oooops) I didn’t know at the time this would come undone in the wash, did anyone else tie knots when you started out?

What method of changing is the preferred way out there?

I always work new colour into the final stitch so that the new colour starts clean on the new row / stitch, this is my preferred way anyway. I then either weave the ends in or crochet them in as I go, depending on what stitch I’m doing.

Hands up, who hates weaving ends? I do, like really do so I will try and crochet them into the work as much as I possible can.

It also covered working in the front and back loops, front and back posts to create a ribbed effect, which if you’ve never done before can seem a little confusing when you are a beginner, especially back post because it just feels awkward in your hands.

Then went onto the differences between Clusters, Bobbles, Puff and Popcorn stitches, which was good to get a clear outline of the difference to each as they can sometimes be referred to as the same names depending on patterns, but there is quite a difference. I think my preference is Bobbles, Whats yours?

Well that’s my assessment submitted so fingers crossed and onto Module 5 it is.

Thanks for reading, Happy Saturday
