Product description

Offering clear, concise instructions, this series has served as a classic reference for handcrafters for more than 30 years. A jam-packed, updated resource filled with new ideas, this guide is also a dependable and complete crochet-instruction manual. Some classic motifs that are presented include a simple lace triangle, a delicate popcorn trefoil, and an intricate French square, each worked in contemporary yarns and displayed in full-color photographs. More patterns are derived from an Italian square, which makes a great base for a casual cushion, and a diamond square that works perfectly as the foundation for an easy-going shoulder bag. Free-form techniques are also explained, and crocheters are urged to experiment and combine patterns. For those who aspire to learn many motifs, instructions are provided for stitching practice squares into the ultimate afghan.
