Product description

The wonderful thing about crochet is its versatility - using very little more than one ball of yarn and a crochet hook you can create stylish fashion garments and unique accessories for your home, with ease. The beautiful and contemporary designs in this book - from the narrow stripe beret and deep v skinny tunic to the mock pleat shoulder bag and crochet squares blanket - all use the latest yarns and colours and have been designed with the style-conscious in mind. There are also shorter projects so if you're really pressed for time, you can simply make a few pretty crochet cupcakes or jam jar covers - perfect for adding a personal touch to your home or for giving as gifts to friends and relatives. With a comprehensive introduction to the techniques of this fulfilling craft, as well as step-by-step instructions throughout the projects, this book is your one-stop guide to crochet. All patterns have been thoroughly tested and give clear instructions and close-up detail shots make the book suitable even for a beginner.

Crochet is fashionable once more. This book has a good mix of 25 projects that will build your confidence in crochet. There is an excellent how-to section. I love the cobweb gloves and spiky scarf. Some of the projects still a little old-fashioned, but a good introduction to crochet....www.karenplatt/reviews
