Description

Crochet is a traditional craft that nevertheless remains popular - perhaps because it is so simple to learn. Learn to Crochet takes the beginner through all the basics with clear step-by-step photographs and instructions for each new technique, interspersed with attractive projects, so that the key skills are gradually built up and reinforced.

Starting with essential advice on how to hold the yarn and crochet hook, and moving on to simple stitches such as chain stitch and treble stitch, the reader is soon confident enough to start working in rounds or creating patterns using stitch groups such as puffs and shells. Even delicate filet crochet is carefully explained and easily mastered. The early projects can be achieved with a minimum of techniques so that in no time at all complete beginners can make a range of highly individual and delightful items, from fashion accessories such as scarves and hats to a beautiful white bedspread or some pretty edged bedlinen.
