This isn't just another crochet project book; it's an exploration of the craft's creative possibilities! Designer Dora Ohrenstein closely examines crochet's three basic variables - hook, yarn, and stitch - and how their infinite combinations create distinctive fabrics. Dozens of swatches show which techniques will result in a structured, hardwearing fabric or a lacy one that drapes; how a yarn can either hide or show off stitch patterns; and which crochet patterns can mimic plaid or colourful African designs. Fifteen projects move readers from theory into practice.
