Freeform crochet is just so much fun! It's allows for such creativity and is so forgiving of mistakes. I've begun making shawls to use up left-over yarn from previous projects and I've found that freeform allows me the flexibility to use a variety of yarns and textures to create very unique items. No patterns to read, just crochet and go! Here's an example of a work in progress and photos of one shawl I just finished last week.
