Book Description

10 Nov 2008

Say "goodbye" to crochet's stiff, boxy, hippie-child reputation and "hello" to Crochet that Fits—garments that fit your shape accessories that fit your style, and looks that fit right in with today's fashion trends!

This book teaches an innovative, easy way to crochet fashions that are soft, shaped and drape able—from a little black dress that fits like a glove and a lacy baby-doll top, to cute and cozy slippers, ruffled shrugs and hobo bags. By using Mary Jane Hall's Graduated Stitch Method, along with the correct size hook and yarn, anyone can make flattering, form-fitted items! Different stitch heights do all the shaping for you, without the hassle and confusion of figuring out increases and decreases. With this method you are essentially building garments with squares and rectangles, but the finished product doesn't look at all boxy.

  • 33 step-by-step projects feature a wide variety of patterns for adults and children
  • An illustrated stitch guide get even beginners started quickly
  • Detailed instructions make it easy to adjust the patterns to suit your shape (or others') because one side doesn't fit all!
Easy enough for a beginner and stylish enough for the more experienced crocheter, these are projects you'll enjoy making and feel good wearing. With fits like this, you'll never think about crochet in the same way again!

3.0 out of 5 stars possibilities look good 5 Nov 2008
Format:Paperback
Crochet the "Graduated Stitch Method Way", also comes under the title of "Crochet that Fits", as did mine, with the same cover photo. I think the technique offered is a real eye opener to create your own designs. I have in mind fitted jackets with a gentle flair peplum base, and fitted vests. These items are not included in the book as I had hoped, but now I have the 'know how', thanks to Mary Jane Hall. From my perspective too much space was given over to scarves, bags, and open netting effect tunic and shawl.

2.0 out of 5 stars not keen 8 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback
These patterns are all done from the side to side to do the shaping
There is no actual sticth pattern variation It is all done in double/single crochet in the back loop only and looks chunky, not very inspiring. Glad I borrowed fron the library first(and took it straight back!) as I wouldn't buy it. Keen crocherts should look at Melody Griffiths,Doris Chan and Lily Chin's books,much better!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book, highly recommended! 16 Dec 2008
By Alison
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book does exactly what it claims - teaches a graduated stitch method easily, meaning you can create beautiful garments with no fuss.

The patterns are beautiful - and it is so easy to see how to develop the designs to fit your own body and adapt the method for your own use. Beautifully clear instructions - very highly recommended! I think all crocheters will love this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars What it says on the cover 7 Jun 2012
By Hayley
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is informative and could lead to some really nice items being made. I felt that the patterns became a little repetitive after a while but I did like the finished results.

This was one of the best crochet books I have, I made the dress on the front and it turned out perfect. The graduated stitch method was easy and works beautifully, great new technique.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love this book 28 Jun 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love the technique that is put forward in this book - definitely a must-have for learning side-to-side clothing construction. My only nit-pick is that there are some items in here which aren't for wearing and don't really make full use of the side-to-side method (like a boxy handbag and a wave stitch purse) so I'm not sure what they're doing in here. Seems like they were filler patterns. However, there are three good patterns in here which are on my definite make list, and a few others which are possibles.
