Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In tapestry crochet, the artisan works with smooth yarns or threads in a variety of colors and a comparatively small hook in relation to fiber size. Those colors not currently in use are carried within the piece until needed again. The result is a dense fabric somewhat reminiscent of woven tapestry. Ventura first discovered tapestry crochet as a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala when she acquired some of the colorful tapestry-crocheted shoulder bags that are part of traditional Maya male attire. Her first book on the subject was Tapestry Crochet. The present work repeats much of the instructional material of its predecessor but includes an illustrated history of tapestry crochet, expanded information on natural fibers, and many new projects, including hats, baskets, bags, and pillows. An excellent choice for textile collections and public libraries.

Review

More Tapestry Crochet is Carol's second book on the subject. All the how-to instructions that were in her first book are included plus all new projects. Both left-hand and right-hand illustrations are provided for how to tapestry crochet. The project graphs are for right-handed people only. I never did well with using a mirror; however, if you follow the pattern as is; it will simply face the opposite direction. Most of us lefties design backwards from righties anyway. The projects have motifs incorporated into the patterns such as diagonal waves, giraffes, hearts and cats. Many of the motifs are steeped in history and others contemporary. There are in-depth instructions for working a motif in a project; how to check for stitch gauge; and every row/round is listed one at a time, not all grouped together in one big paragraph. You can use a ruler or paperclip to work down each row/round in a project. I often have to rewrite a whole pattern when crocheting or knitting because the pattern is in one big paragraph and it is easy to lose my place. If the pattern does not make sense, I rewrite it, figuring it out as I go. Carol's patterns on the other hand, are very easy to follow just as they are written. You will be amazed when you can make patterns within your project and do not have lose threads on the back (wrong side), and both sides will reflect each other. While teaching you tapestry crochet, you will also learn about the history of tapestry crochet; where it first emerged, and the type fibers used, including those from sheep. There are several photos of tapestry crochet from around the world, along with photos of some of the makers while they are crocheting. More Tapestry Crochet is an excellent addition to Carol's first book and stands alone as a complete instruction book. I would highly recommend you purchase each of her books on this subject, and keep them for reference in addition to the projects. --Beadwrangler, March 2007

While serving as a Peace Corps volunteer in Guatemala, Carol Ventura was inspired by the colorful tapestry crocheted shoulder bags made there. Since then, she has explored the design potential of this technique and has developed a system of diagramming patterns. She shares this technique in More Tapestry Crochet in which she features a variety of flat and dimensional projects. Carol holds a Ph.D. in art, an M.A. in ceramics, and an M.F.A. in printmaking, papermaking and book arts. Widely published in both scholarly journals and magazines, Carol's latest book is 176 pages filled with illustrations, photographs, projects and history of the technique. Instructions are included for both right and left-handed stitchers. --Crochet! November 2002

More Tapestry Crochet, Carol Ventura's second volume on this fascinating crochet method is a comprehensive guide to this technique. The book offers clear and detailed instructions and illustrations to ensure your success. There are twenty varied projects to crochet: scrunchies, a hacky sack, purses, baskets, bowls, pillows, a blanket, a scarf, a shawl and even a beaded spiral necklace. Carol's guidelines for designing your own unique tapestry crochet projects make it easy for anyone to be a designer! Carol has developed special charts that represent the unique shifting tendency of sc and help make your designs come out the way you envision them. The author has done extensive research, traveling around the world, and presents a brief history of this technique along with photographs of examples of the craft from Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and the Americas. --Crochet Fantasy, February 2003

More Tapestry Crochet, Carol Ventura's second book on the techniques behind this amazing method for crocheting that creates a tapestry fabric look-alike, is a must-have for anyone serious about learning the needleart. Ventura does an excellent job of providing the reader with clear instructions for teaching oneself. Those new to crocheting will definitely appreciate the detailed information on the basics which are clearly illustrated with line drawings near the beginning of the book. There's also information on increasing, decreasing, shaping, working in a spiral and creating design motifs using graph paper she developed specifically for tapestry crochet. Her graph paper reflects the tendency for the stitches to slant, allowing for more control over the look of the crocheted motif, leaving little, if any, room for unexpected results. A variety of patterns are included with easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions that crocheters of all skill levels should be able to follow. Patterns featured are for round, spiral, flat and tubular projects, as well as one for a beaded bracelet and necklace. Ventura has also included facts about different natural fibers, including cotton, linen, silk, alpaca and wool, all of which are excellent for use with tapestry crochet. There's also information on the history of tapestry crochet that covers Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the Americas. This information will, no doubt, add to one's fascination with the needle art. Tapestry crochet is not found everywhere, although it is becoming more widespread as people move around the world, writes Ventura. The book, priced at $30, is available through her tapestrycrochet.com website. Jocelynn Brown, Detroit, Michigan --The Detroit News Handmade Crafts Blog, August 5, 2011
