Contemporary crochet projects for fun, fast, fashionable afghans, shoulder wraps, and baby blankets.
Throws and baby blankets are the most popular crochet projects, according to the Yarn Council of America. Beginners love them because no fitting or seaming is required, and everyone loves the look and coziness of a crocheted throw. Hooked Throws presents colorful, contemporary crochet projects for textured Afghans, lacey shoulder wraps, and cute baby blankets. The original patterns use widely available yarns including popular novelty yarns. Color photographs show the finished projects, the stitches close up, the yarn used, and how to make the crochet stitches step by step. Other features include a handy ruler inside the cover and a covered spiral binding. Hooked Throws joins an exciting new series of crochet project books.
