Description

This jam-packed stitch bible begins with a guide to the best tools and equipment, detailed instructions on how to crochet, and information on reading stitch diagrams and understanding crochet abbreviations

It offers a selection of the very best stitches, including a few new ones and some reinvented for a new generation. The book is divided into three main sections. The first covers basic crochet stitches. The emphasis here is on texture, and we show how combinations of these stitches can be used to make a huge variety of different crochet fabrics, featuring shells, chevrons, puff stitches, trellis stitches and loop stitches, among others.

The second section focuses on motifs in a variety of shapes: circular, square, polygonal, triangular as well as leaf and petal shapes. Regular-shaped motifs can be made in multiples and stitched together to create items such as throws and blankets.

The third section covers edgings and trims, ranging from simple cords and braids to more elaborate ruffles and frills. Crochet trims can be used to decorate a plain knit or crochet item, adding a special something to a hem, cuff, neckline or plain blanket edge.

This inspiring volume will provide a wealth of ideas to bring new creative elements to your crochet work. Whether you are new to crochet or a seasoned pro, there is always something new to learn.
