Synopses & Reviews
Crocheting accessories can be a quick, simple, and rewarding way to enhance a wardrobeand#151;and build needlework skills. Thanks to Francine Toukou, these sophisticated patterns have a distinctively urban edge, a sassy design aesthetic, and an imaginative use of color. Toukou promises that the techniques are so simple, even beginners can master them in little time. The biggest challenge will be deciding which one of these beautiful projects to do first.
Sometimes the simplest accessories are the most stylish. That's true of the 30 delightful items in Crochet Boutique. Crocheters will love this fashion-forward collection, with such projects as hats, scarves, shawls, trendy bags, a laptop cover, a granny-square pillow, and a lovely shell afghan. With a short basics section, irresistible photography, and an informative stitch guide, Crochet Boutique is simply indispensable!
With their contemporary, fashion-forward spin on classic patterns, these 25 hats are sure to hook crocheters everywhere! Featuring popular author Rachael Oglesby's signature style, the designs include an ombre-dipped beanie, a raffia boater hat, slouchy patterned stunners, and more. Some even have unisex appeal. In addition to crochet basics, Oglesby provides fun for intermediates, with dip-dyeing, cable work, multiple yarn colors, and wrapping.
