Master the traditional and versatile craft of crochet through a series of ten workshops. From holding the hook and basic stitches to intricate decorative motifs and filet and lace, the lessons in this comprehensive guide build upon each other, ensuring steady, confident progress. Stitch libraries teach you to expand your repertoire as you work with color, texture, patterns, and designs. Put your skills to practical use on 17 beautiful, contemporary projects: a classic string bag, padded coat hangers, mittens, a baby quilt, slippers, and more.
For the first time since the late 1970s, crocheters have a number of excellent new crochet books from which to choose. This is among the best. Turner is a gifted teacher and author of books and videos on crochet, including The Technique of Crochet and Crochet: A History of the Craft Since 1850. This is a complete crochet course presented as a series of workshops that cover not only standard crochet but also those varieties of crochet that do not employ a standard crochet hook, such as Tunisian, broomstick, and hairpin crochet. Each workshop features an illustrative project, full-color illustrations of techniques, and step-by-step instructions written for a U.S. audience. Public libraries will want to add this title to their short list of essential crochet books. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
