Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Covered in the pages of this in-depth, how-to book are the answers to a wide range of nuts-and-bolts questions that crocheters are often unable to find in standard tutorial crochet books that cover only the basics. Fledgling stitchers will learn how to read patterns, work with multiples, successfully substitute yarns, effectively master seaming, evaluate gauge, convert measurements, enlarge patterns for a perfect fit, fix crochet mishaps, use special hooks, work with color, block projects, and crochet fitted socks. Beyond the basics, this guide also shows crafters the ins and outs of felting, mosaic crochet, Swedish embroidery, tambour, fair isle, flatwork bead crochet, and even how to process and crochet pet hair. This book will also help readers organize their crochet supplies and yarn scraps and even show them how to take their crochet to a professional level. Projects include pillows, a ladies' jacket, socks, toys, and more.
