Primer on sculptural crochet
Now on SuperNaturale: an article I wrote which explains how anyone can use crochet to sculpt 3D forms. It is based on a cabinet of crochet "elements" I use for workshops (most recently, the Maker Faire), and it contains (too?) lengthy descriptions of how various combinations of stitches can be used to make more complex forms. Furthermore, there are little pseudo-patterns available for each one of the sample pieces, so you can create a cabinet of your own if you like, which might be a fun way to familiarize yourself with the techniques discussed. Let me know if you have any additional questions!
