Crochet & Shaping

Shaping plays a vital role in creating a crochet piece and traditionally shaping and blocking were the final processes to completing a crochet garment, giving it a professional look. Now, you can pick up a crochet pattern and decrease and increase stitches are used to help in the shaping process as you go along. Well for me, traditional doesn't always work... I like to go to the
extreme...


















To shape my gloves I use hair rollers.... and candle pedestals. Stop laughing... because I am anxious to hear what kind of objects you use to help shape your crochet or knit projects... I'm waiting...

Oh my, I've never had to shape anything like that so this is new to me! I like the hair rollers idea though.

I've read somewhere of a woman using the curved wire from her bra as a stitch holder.

Girl, yes.
