Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

From Art Deco–inspired geometric designs to traditional checkerboard stripes and elaborate motifs, this guide helps crafters rediscover crochet with more than 200 fabulous block patterns. Employing traditional styles and contemporary colors, crocheted blocks inspire crafters to create a dynamic palette of color, pattern, and texture by mixing, matching, and combining. Step-by-step instructions accompany each pattern, along with stunning photographs that encourage crocheters to explore a range of color combinations and coordinates. A directory of blocks is cross-referenced with symbols that describe the techniques used and the degree of difficulty, and each pattern is designed so that finished blocks are the same size when they are worked in yarn of the same weight. A useful refresher course of crochet stitches and techniques is included, as are patterns for edgings and instructions on making fringes to finish off afghans in style.

I've had a lot of fun with this book. I used left over hand dyed wool from a weaving project. On a road trip down the west coast (America) I crocheted a number of the patterns. I mostly used the simpler patterns so that I didn't have to be glued to staring at the book and my work. Not much point in going on a road trip only to stare intently at your lap the whole time! I've heard from others that there are some mistakes in the instructions, but that the corrections are available online at the publisher Interweave. When it comes to craft titles, Interweave rocks hard.
