Making a start (2)

Sorry I couldn't come to the last meeting. Hope someone will blog about it here…
I've been crocheting this little dress, from a single nylon-thread. It is denser than I expected. Had to work on it against a dark surface, so I could see what I was doing, and by excellent light only, presently next to my lumie-lamp, which also helps expel the winter-blues. I am not particularly thrilled by this object, wished I hadn't spent so much time on it but felled compelled towards completion, even if just to dismiss. Will try again with a much thicker crochet hook, make it lighter, loopy. In the meantime I might also play around a bit with the image.
Ultimately I would like to make something that is on the verge of disappearing, or appearing, and quite like this embossed version.

Or crumple up the dress and let it find different shapes.

Materials: nylon thread, twig, wire
Dimensions: 24 cm x 19 cm


  1. This is fascinating! I am glad you posted it. I like the concept of disappearing/reappearing like the embossed one. What kind of nylon thread did you use?

  2. It's just very simple, clear nylon thread, very thin, but the way I crocheted the dress it still came out feeling relatively substantial, which is not what I wanted. A larger crocheting hook may do the trick.
