Product description

One-of-a-kind motifs are just the beginning. Now, with "Connect The Shapes Crochet Motifs", this guide to creative joining techniques shows how easy it is to combine multiples of a motif to form a whole new pattern, from lacy links to 3-D effects, swiris, radiants, and wheels. The variations are endless, as each joining technique can be used with a wide range of motifs. Eckman also provides more than 100 new motif designs. Every design and joining technique is accompanied with step-by-step instructions and the innovative japanese-inspired charts crocheters are enthusiastically embracing. Eckman polishes off this superb collection with projects that illustrate the stunning results that can be achieved by connecting the shapes - from placemats and afghans to pillows, skirts, and shawls. This is a must-have reference for all crocheters.
