Amazing Crochet by Numbers Technique from Todd Paschall

Blogged under Fiber Fun by Tammy on Tuesday 30 June 2009 at 7:44 am

Todd Paschall is an amazing crochet artist who has developed an equally amazing crochet technique he calls “Crochet by Numbers.” Pictured is one of his pieces, and yes, that is actually made by crocheting with yarn, simple ol’ Red Heart acrylic yarn in fact. On his web site, he has free patterns, a gallery with more fabulous work he and his students have done, and more information about how this method works.

In addition to selling finished work and teachinf others his technique, he also creates custom patterns from photos. He has recently set up a group on Ravelry for those who want to learn, share, and of course, get help along the way. When you see his work, you realize how he is not only an artist but an innovator, taking crochet to a level way beyond your typical granny square to say the least!

    I MET TODD AND THOUGHT HIS TEACHING STYLE IS GREAT AND EASY TO FOLLOW.
    HE CAN DEMONSTRATE IT SO EASY, AND IS VERY ENCOURAGING TO HIS STUDENTS. i LOOK FORWARD TO LEARNING AND PRACTICING HIS TECHNIQUE.

    I just learned this technique this week. Myrna, you’ve got to do it…it’s great! Just check his site crochetbynumbers.com. You can get a training pattern in pdf, and watch a really helpful video where he walks you through it step by step. He’s also extremely helpful on email. I do a lot of amigurumi, and I definitely had to change my mindset, but it was worth struggling a little bit to get it. Tying square knots is important in CBN, but normally sacriligous!
