As I type this post away, I’m sitting looking out over the rolling green hills in front of me, with the ocean making a guest appearance in the background.
Since I can remember, nature has always been the inspiration behind all of my creativity… What motivates and inspires you? Recently an old memory was brought to my attention. Years ago, in my childhood home, I used to always find moments to venture out in the garden and walk underneath an old, rickety arch, consisting of trellis-work covered head to toe in spindly vines and flowers.
Of course this recollection set me on a new crochet path… I realised that creating a series of chain arches and picots not only complimented one another, but also closely resembled trellises!
The Picot Trellis Stitch is a whimsical, lacy stitch… Perfect for when crocheting those bohemian inspired market bags and lightweight shawls, as this stitch quickly works up into a lovely mesh fabric.
