Explore the world of micro crochet with this collection of crochet patterns and charts for 100 exquisite crochet motifs. This collection of teeny, tiny crochet motifs from talented crochet designer, Steffi Glaves, explores the world of miniature in crochet form.

The step-by-step instructions show you how to create your own micro crochet makes to create a wide range of beautiful crochet pieces that can be used in so many ways.
These wonderfully small motifs are beautifully detailed despite their small size and can be used for jewellery, accessories, appliques, decorations and embellishments.

You will learn the central skills needed for micro-crochet, such as how to hold the thread and hook, reading a crochet chart, special edgings, blocking and stiffening. Alongside that, you will also learn about the tools and types of threads to use, and the special techniques needed for creating the motifs in this book, such as incorporating wire, creating tiny keepsake bags and making your own jewellery.

There are simple motifs with two to four rounds of crochet and more challenging ones with more rounds, colour changes and different stitches - some of them are 3D amigurumi.
Step-by-step instructions show you how to crochet intricately detailed motifs using fine cotton quilting thread and a 0.5mm crochet hook.

Choose from a wide range of motifs including flowers; leaves & plants; fruit; triangles, granny squares, Christmas and even mini amigurumi.
As well as the huge choice of motifs there are 10 projects showing you how to use the motifs for small projects such as jewellery and accessories; as well as how to scale up the designs using thicker yarn and a bigger hook to make bags, bunting, accessories, wall hangings and cards.

Includes instructions for all the necessary crochet techniques and stitches, as well as specific advice for working at such as small scale. Also includes techniques for using jewellery findings and other tools to create the projects.
So, if you love to crochet and fancy trying something different why not give micro crochet a go? This is the perfect guide for anyone who already has a grasp of the basic crochet stitches and techniques, and wishes to explore making jewellery, accessories, appliques, or just tiny things for the sheer joy of it.
