Full description for Learn to Crochet
All you need to know in one small handbag sized book, packed full of clear stitch diagrams and instructions - plus 20 simple projects to make. "Learn to Crochet" is the only book you will need to learn to create beautiful crocheted garments from your own hook. The book is packed with detailed information on yarns and threads, hook types and sizes, plus step-by-step guidance on holding a hook and yarn, making a loop to basic stitches and much more. All of the teaching sections have clear colour artwork and diagrams, teamed with colour photography of real-life examples of crocheted items, ideal for the beginner. The book also comes with an outstanding gallery of 20 simple projects to make (easy, intermediate and advanced) - with garments for accessories and home furnishings, using gorgeous yarns from Anchor, Coats and Patons: Anchor Magic; Anchor Orion; Anchor Pearl Cotton (No. 5); Coats Aida No. 10 and No. 5; Coats Eldorado; Coats Lyric 8/4; Coats Lyric 8/8; Coats Mercer Crochet No. 20; and, Patons Diploma Gold DK. The delightful projects include: A Treble-Crochet Scarf, which is made with only two yarns despite its multi-coloured look; and a gorgeous String Bag, trimmed with beautiful glass beads - ideal for shopping as it stretches when filled, or to take to the beach on holiday as it squeezes into your luggage! There is also a stunning Scallop Cushion which is quick and easy to make, but the design is classic yet contemporary and would finish off any room with a touch of flair and style. Each project has detailed instructions, a requirements list and tension guide, together with a gorgeous colour photograph of the finished project.
