Crochet With Wireby Nanice M. Wiseman
Synopses & Reviews
Crocheting takes on a new dimension in this fun and creative collection of 30 stunning yet easy-to-make necklaces, earrings, and bracelets—all made using wire. Those new to crochet will get all the basics of crocheting, including finishing off, adding new wire, and planning projects—with plenty of illustrations throughout for guidance. There is also a discussion of which crochet hooks to use, and how to choose the right wire gauge to suit any project. Most of the projects are simple, requiring single crochet, half-double crochet, and double crochet in the same basic patterns used in yarn crochet. Beaders will delight over a new way to play with beads, and seasoned crocheters will relish this fresh, innovative approach to a time-honored, favorite technique.
