Description

One-of-a-kind motifs are just the beginning. Now, with "Connect The Shapes Crochet Motifs", this guide to creative joining techniques shows how easy it is to combine multiples of a motif to form a whole new pattern, from lacy links to 3-D effects, swiris, radiants, and wheels. The variations are endless, as each joining technique can be used with a wide range of motifs. Eckman also provides more than 100 new motif designs. Every design and joining technique is accompanied with step-by-step instructions and the innovative japanese-inspired charts crocheters are enthusiastically embracing. Eckman polishes off this superb collection with projects that illustrate the stunning results that can be achieved by connecting the shapes - from placemats and afghans to pillows, skirts, and shawls. This is a must-have reference for all crocheters.

Review quote

Eckman's (Around the Corner Crochet Borders) specialty is crochet motifs--she has a knack for turning simple stitches with colorful yarn into something fresh and contemporary. Here, she introduces a new batch of crocheted motifs as well as a variety of creative methods for joining the motifs together. Full-color photographs of each motif are included, as are written and charted directions. As a bonus, there are 12 patterns that use the motifs and connection techniques covered in the book. This isn't for beginners--readers need to know how to crochet to get the most out of it--but Eckman may inspire some noncrocheters to learn, just so they can experiment with the techniques she describes. -VERDICT Eckman's eye for color and design make this an excellent addition to any crafter's crochet collection.
