Free Form Crochet

I've started playing with free form crochet again (aka organic crochet). You know how great chefs never measure...they just use a little of this and a pinch of that? In free form crochet you use your intuition to combine all sorts of colors and textures and stitches into a one of a kind creation. It could be a poncho, a cape, a hat or whatever strikes your fancy. You are no longer stuck with following someone's pattern. Can you handle that kind of freedom? It's a lot of fun. Someone even wrote a book on it called Scrumbles.
