Quoted from Interweave Crochet Fall 2011, page 34:
“In this technique, the crocheter’s hands “know” the pattern and crochet to a certain shape, rather than to a specific patter. The patterns here reflect an interpretation of the spontaneity of these motifs. For this reason, the patterns do no exactly match each piece of the step-out photos, as the number of chains required will vary in each crocheter’s hands. Use the patterns as a basis but let your hands shape the final motif, making each truly your own.“
