Item Description...
“Take your yarn for a walk,” says author Jenny Dowde, who teaches the freeform “scrumbling” technique. With scrumbling, needleworkers can work unbound by patterns and yet still successfully knit or crochet a project. With just a range of simple stitches and only a few basic techniques, anyone can create lovely and useful household objects and eye-catching wearable art. Full-color photographs illustrate Dowde's methods in action, from completing both basic and advanced stitches to working with wires and beads, along with a host of special techniques, including constructing buttons, unusual closures, and special accents from polymer clay.

Maybe not my style but inspirational!  May 14, 2008
Although I really, REALLY love the idea, I probably wouldn't wear a good majority of the "freeformed" items I see out there... I know for certain i'd probably never wear anything IN this book. I'm not so sure I'd expect anyone else to, either (for me it brings to mind a certain type of older woman with a lot of jewelry and, well, very "colorful" attire).

However, the technique itself is amazing and if you're wanting to learn it, learn it from the master - it could be applied to all sorts of amazing projects. I'm happy I bought this book (even if, back when i bought it, i had to search high and low for a copy and felt all cool because I finally found it - and it was from Australia!)
Freeform Knitting and Crochet (Milner Craft Series)  Jan 24, 2008
I read the earlier reviews on this book and knowing Jenny Dowde's reputation and work, I bought it without hesitation. I consider myself a beginner, and after messing around to see what I could do with my scraps, wanted something to help me make more "wearable art". But this is not the book for that. Readers who know any color theory will be disappointed at the depth of that section. And while the construction techniques were helpful, they didn't address making complex garments. I love Jenny Dowde, but this book didn't help me to do something more than I would have attempted before I read it.

I certainly feel out of sync with the other reviewers, many of whom sound very experienced. I think it would be excellent choice for anyone who hesitates to begin a project that isn't all planned out - Dowde is an excellent teacher. And perhaps Freeform Knitting requires more changes to your normal methods than Freeform Crochet. But I would not recommend this book to anyone who crochets, feel comfortable experimenting on their own after looking at pictures on-line, and wants a book to help them make more finished and complex garments.
freedom in knitting  Oct 27, 2007
first of all - I like the book and I am glad I bought it. Personally, I could have done without the colour theory in the first chapter, but this was because I was impatiently waiting to get started with the knitting. The ideas are wonderful and great for using up these little bits of yarns left over from previous projects. Once you get started it is hard to stop and the ideas keep coming.Only downside: you NEED to go back to the yarn shop - no way do you have enough different threads at home :-), but since when is that a problem? llFreeform Knitting and Crochet (Milner Craft Series)
fun, fun, fun  May 7, 2007
Great book full of ideas to create fabrics out of leftover yarns. Pictures and instructions are beautiful. Lots of inspiration.
Freeform Knitting and Crochet  Feb 20, 2007
This book is great! You do not need any other book to teach you this technique. If you can only do knit, purl & simple single crochet or you are an experienced "stitcher", this book will allow your "free spirit" to emerge.
The book covers everything from color spectrums to endless possibilities for using your finished art form pieces. Nothing you do is a mistake and I love the freedom of creating my own "yarn sculpture".
