The fiber art known as freeform crochet and/or knitting encompasses a number of creative techniques using a wide variety of stitches and fibers without a pattern. The most common technique is called Scrumbling; a name coined by Sylvia Cosh and James Walters in the 1970¹s. Scrumbling is a method of creating fabric pieces that are joined together to create wearable art. The technique is as varied as the number of people who enjoy doing freeform.
Freeform differs from traditional crochet and knitting in that fabric is created in pieces and then sewn together to form the garment as opposed to following a set linear pattern. Scrumbles are usually created about palm sized and moved around within a template to create the fabric. The art of freeform is very similar to abstract painting with yarn, knitting needles and crochet hooks.
