This wonderful book contains 25 fun and interesting projects designed by 15 different artisans. All of these projects, upon completion, will become treasured heirlooms. I'm excited and eager to get started. The book is broken down with the projects and their instructions in the front followed by 28 pages of "Techniques" in the back. The instructions for the individual projects are given in US terms, are comprehensive, and very easy to follow. I love this book.
The Technique Section is so detailed that I think a beginner could easily follow these fully illustrated instructions. Covered under this section are:
BASIC TOOLS: Which is broken into Essential and Optional: Under essential are..large crochet hooks (US sizes M/N-13 US P/Q), scissors, and a blunt tapestry needle for working in the tails of fabric. Under optional tools are...cutting mat, rotary cutter, ruler designed for use with a rotary cutter, sewing needle and thread, and a sewing machine.
FABRIC: Virtually any fabric can be used.
HOOKS AND GAUGE: Includes a hook sizes chart and details about getting our gauge right.
CUTTING AND JOINING YARN (Fabric): Cutting a continuous strip, cutting a continuous loop, cutting single strips, joining single strips (knotting, buttonhole join, and running stitch join).
STARTING TO CROCHET: Holding the hook, holding the yarn, knots and chains, chain stitch, foundation chain.
STITCHES: Slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, and treble crochet.
INCREASING and DECREASING: for all the stitches.
SPECIAL STITCHES: Front post stitches, back post stitches, reverse single crochet, back loop only, front loop only, and working into the back strand.
Working in the Round: Magic ring, ring of chains, working flat rounds, invisible join for a flat round
Throughout the book are bright orange text squares called Pattern Notes, which contain helpful hints and tips to help us achieve successful results and to make our work easier.
For the experienced crocheter, you can get creative and revise these patterns to make projects with different
kinds of yarn or different sizes. This book has some helpful hints/tips for your projects. I really like it!
