Using graphic illustrations and clear guidelines, this straightforward crochet resource is essential for the visual crafter--anyone who understands maps better than verbal directions, and images better than basic step-by-step instructions. Covering a wide range of skill levels, it introduces the universal symbol language of crochet to newcomers, while also satisfying the need for intermediate level patterns. Each crochet design is broken down stitch-by-stitch in a diagram format so that visual learners can see, as well as read, each step. With contemporary designs from trendy to classic, each project offers a fresh take on crochet, providing modern patterns for purses, necklaces, belts, dresses, shawls, and more.

Review:

"Recommended for public libraries." - Library Journal

"One of the most educational (and inspirational) crochet books I've read...[the] quick introduction on the basics of crochet symbols and charts completely blew me away." - Classic Elite Web-Letter

"Chachula, a self-described visual crocheter, here marries her crafty innovation with her background as a structural engineer... She's able to lay out her often intricate designs while avoiding the lengthy mess of abbreviations into which crochet directions often devolve." - Yarn Market News

"Robyn's combined all of her technical expertise with an unleashed imagination, and one gorgeous garment is featured after the other... This is a beautiful book." - Crochet Insider

"Chachula brings her engineering background into the world of crochet, emphasizing things like shape, drape, and structural context to create eye-catching designs." - CraftGossip.com

"An excellent resource for those wishing to pursue blueprint crochet." - Suite101.com

"I am happy to see some new great fashion designs for crochet. This book has what many other crochet books do not have, Crochet Symbols." - Knitting News

"Directions for the projects in the book are given in graphic, not written, mode--which makes sense since Chachula is a former structural engineer turned crochet designer. Once you grasp the idea of following the design 'blueprint,' it's easy to do and easier to follow than written directions." - Bangor Daily News
