To enter the contest, all was needed was to share a picture of your swatch(es) crocheted following an Episode of the DC project, to explore all the variants of my favorite crochet stitch, the Double Crochet !
But first, let’s have a look at all the swatches entered in the contest, and feedback from the crocheters who made them:

She said “J’aime beaucoup le rendu de la troisime partie tout en haut.” (= I really like the look of the dc in the front loop)
“Pas trs fan des gros reliefs, ce que je prfre c’est la deuxime partie en partant du bas” (= Not a huge fan of the relief stitches, the one I prefer is the dc in the 3rd loop)

She wrote about the whole experience on her (french) blog, and basically even though she’s a designer herself it seems she was shocked by the difference many of those variants made:

“Premier choc, comme une cruche, je m’attendais un rsultat identique sur les brides brin avant et brin arrire. Que nenni ! (..)
Deuxime choc, je n’avais jamais pens piquer dans ce que Sylvie appelle le 3me brin, le petit brin sous les 2 v. C’est pas super facile faire au dbut, mais a donne un chouette effet, comme une lisire de mailles coules. A essayer et utiliser en dco.
Troisime choc, un peu comme pour la bride pique dans le brin avant ou brin arrire, je pensais que la bride relief avant ou relief arrire allaient me donner le mme rsultat, ben non. Enfin si, la diffrence est moindre que pour le brin avant brin arrire, mais on voit clairement une diffrence, au moins de taille. Surprenant. Du coup, je suis perplexe pour l’emploi des brides en relief sur les carrs granny par exemple. La symtrie n’est pas heu… symtrique !
Quatrime choc, la bride lie. Mais qu’est ce donc que cette bte l ??? Ben c’est nouveau, a vient d’sortir. Enfin, certainement pas pour tout le monde, mais pour moi, si. Et le rsultat est jouli jouli !! Je m’en reservirai, c’est sr et certo.”

Kims Colorway tried the dc in both loops, dc in the front loop and in the back loop with episode 1.
” Very interesting! I never thought of that before! Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.”

PHOTO 8
Marie Juglair followed episode 6 for her swatch: she crocheted the dc in both loops, linked dc, dc in between stitches and extended dc.
“J’aime bien la bride lie qui donne un effet bien serr et qui permet de ne pas doubler si on fait une pochette (car je ne matrise pas bien la couture…)”
= I like the linked dc which has a tight look and allows to skip the lining if making a bag (as I don’t master sewing very well)
