Scrumble/Freeform Crochet

Have you ever wanted to try freeform?
Me too.
It is also known as scrumbling.
One of the many pleasures of scrumbling, was to learn the bullion stitch.
I think it is so pretty and the more you do it the better you become at it.
Another pleasure is to use up your scrap yarn and you can also use those little pieces that went wrong, that you couldn't bare to throw out.
If you look closely at the pictures, you will see a black and also a blue sole for slippers I was making some time ago.
Once I added these pieces I couldn't resist to turn the blue sole into a thong(flip flop)
and the black sole into a boot shape.
I also have a graph of a cat, a star, a butterfly, flowers and a granny square that I was trialing.
I believe there are no rules when it comes to freeform crochet apart from one that I created for my self.
Have fun with it!
I am making a blanket/throw/afghan at my own leisure, with no particular colour scheme.
