Product description

With just a few basic crochet skills and clever use of beads and sequins, you can easily create beautifully embellished garments and accessories. This user-friendly book features 20 gorgeous designs plus a wide selection of beaded borders and trims. Choose from wonderfully tactile sweaters, wraps, hats, scarves, bags, cushions, and throws, each with an easy-to-follow pattern, recipe of materials and equipment, and tips on special techniques used. Create a delicate lace-effect shawl; a fitted sweater with sequined motifs; a funky bag with bright beaded chevrons, or a glamorous vintage evening scarf. Core techniques are clearly explained and illustrated with step-by-step photographs, from holding hook and yarn and working basic stitches to reading patterns and finishing off your work.
