Book Description Storey Publishing LLC, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 244 x 210 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Starting with how to choose yarns and ending with finishing techniques, this book covers the basics and so much more in a must-have volume for every fibre aficionado s library. This book features over 70 stitch-along swatches that teach a particular crochet technique as well as five basic projects (hat, shawl, neck warmer, bag, and scarf) that put those techniques to use. The swatches are unusual in that they re not simply a variety of stitch patterns but also a variety of shapes: They are building blocks for more sophisticated and varied projects than just another afghan. This book teaches, for example, how to incorporate slope into a stitch pattern, essential for making a sweater or other garment. This element of the book sets it apart from other crochet reference books. Ohrenstein gives readers the tools to make informed design decisions. At a time when so many crafters are making their own patterns, this book s comprehensive approach will be welcomed by all those who want to explore a new aesthetic and give their crochet projects a fresh look.
