Product description

This book features funky and fashionable projects for the novice stitcher. Get hooked on crochet and discover how to make beautiful and functional accessories for yourself and your home. Crochet is quick, fun and therapeutic, and with knowledge of just a few simple stitches you can start making all kinds of wonderful fabrics. Step-by-step instructions and illustrations explain the core techniques, from making a foundation chain and working stitches to changing colours, creating texture, adding buttonholes, and finishing your work. Choose from 20 funky projects, including bags, scarves, ponchos, hats, throws and cushions, using delicious combinations of colour and yarns. Each progressive project allows you to practice your basic skills or learn a new one: start with a pretty, stripy shoulder bag in double crochet and work your way up to a delicate mohair-and-silk beaded poncho.
