Crochet is Back! Combining the latest, fabulous yarns with traditional techniques, this book presents a wonderful collection of 40 glorious crochet designs. The projects are divided into four chapters: *Sweaters and Tops *Accessories *Children's Fashions *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 more complex crochet techniques, such as working motifs, using charts, or working in rounds. From simple, sleeveless vests and tops to warm, cozy jackets and sweaters to 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 and checking tension. Essential techniques are explained with step-by-step instructions and photographs. There are 40 adorable crochet projects; designs for the latest and best yarns, such as metallic, mohair, ribbon, 4-ply, and worsted; simple patterns for the beginner; and more complex patterns for those with more experience. Maybe it's time for you to fall in love with crochet again. These projects will help!
