Crochet is back! Using the latest fabulous yarns with traditional techniques, this book is a wonderful collection of 40 glorious designs. The projects are divided into four chapters: Sweaters and Tops, Accessories, Children's Fashions and Home Accessories. Some of the items are remarkably quick and simple to make, such as the skinny scarf or the baby blanket, while others make use of crochet techniques such as working motifs, using charts or working in rounds. From simple sleeveless vests and tops to warm and cosy jackets and sweaters, as well as bags, scarves and capes, there is something here to suit every style. All the information for each pattern is clearly given, alongside beautiful photographs of the finished items. In addition, a section at the front of the book takes the reader through all the crochet basics, from choosing hooks and yarns to following patterns. All the patterns are simple and quick to make using the latest yarns, such as metallics, mohairs, ribbons, 4-ply and worsteds, in a fabulous range of colours.
