Crochet in No Time: A Simple, Stylish Collection of 52 Quick-Crochet Projects

Crochet in No Time: A Simple, Stylish Collection of 52 Quick-Crochet Projects Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Imagine a hobby that's a proven stress reliever, highly portable, exceptionally versatile, and requires only one, affordable, simple-to-operate, no-tech tool. No wonder crocheting is enjoying a creative renaissance and attracting crowds of newbie needlecrafters. With Crochet in No Time, anyone can make something stunning to wear, lovely to display, or delightful to give to someone special within a matter of hours.

The illustrated, hands-on techniques section covers the basic stitches. You'll start by learning the right way to hold an extra-large crochet hook and skein of yarn, then quickly move on to casting on and mastering chain, double, and treble crochet stitches.

What makes Crochet in No Time fun for accomplished crocheters, as well as novices, is its original designer collection of 52 projects. Grouped together in categories--accessories, scarves & wraps, sweaters & tops, home, babies & children--the projects all come with clear step-by-step instructions and inspiring photos. From super easy to more challenging, each project comes with an estimated time to complete--from a mere 30 minutes to about a day--plus lots of helpful hints and professional pointers.

Here's a sampling of what's incredibly easy to create with one extra-large crochet hook:

- A jaunty beaded beret and practical scarf with pockets

- A pretty pearly necklace and bright flower earrings

- A rosebud hairband and sugar plum fairy cardigan for a sweet little lady

- An elegant black lace wrap, bag, and gloves for a gala evening

- A cozy flowery paisley afghan and a lovely lace-edged tablecloth

With Crochet in No Time, it's easy to get hooked on whipping up all kinds of chic, adorable, and eye-catching items.
