Chain 20 Crochet Challenge

Hey there hookers!

I’ve been experimenting with different shapes and stitches, but now I have a jumble of swatches and partial balls of yarn and no record of what I’ve done or how. I wanted to start being more systematic about my explorations, so I decided to create the Chain 20 Challenge.

I want to set myself up for success, so I’m keeping it simple. For me, the challenge needs to be short and both well-defined and flexible. So here it is:

  1. Everyday for the next 20 days I will make 20 chains and use them as a foundation to crochet something. 
  2. I will take a picture of what I come up with and write at least one sentence about what I did.

There’s the well-defined part; now for the flexibility.  

  1. I will allow myself to create more than one piece on a day if I know that, say, my wife’s birthday falls in the middle of the challenge, and I might want to focus on her instead of noodling around with a hook. I will still post one picture a day, though.
  2. I will allow extra chains if necessary for turning or pattern repeats.  I just want to use 20 to give myself enough room to work but not so much that the swatch takes forever.

I’m not sure what I will do about blocking...I think I’ll see how the time works out and whether the toddler and puppy will allow for finishing, blocking, and photography on the same day.

Stay tuned for my first...thingie!
