Book Description

11 Oct 2012
A beautifully illustrated publication with a fashion-forward feel, "Fashion Crochet" contains 30 crochet projects for a range of accessories and clothing items inspired by up-to-the-minute catwalk trends. Utterly contemporary and stylish, the projects incorporate a wide cross-section of techniques from granny squares and knotwork to lace and hairpin crochet. As useful for the highly experienced as the absolute beginner, this inspiring and chic book is divided into chapters on accessories, such as shawls, scarves, bags, hats, jewellery and decorative items, and separates, such as dresses, skirts, tops and beachwear. Each project is accompanied by fashion photographs showing the inspiration for the piece, and offers ideas on how to wear the item. Essential tools and techniques are clearly explained - from crochet hooks, working stitches and how to measure tension to adding embellishments and finishing off - with line drawings provided for more complicated techniques.

3.0 out of 5 stars Errors spoil an interesting book. 31 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this because I thought it gave some new and interesting ideas on using crochet to produce fashion items, especially accessories. I've made several pieces but some of the patterns have significant errors. I'm not a novice at crochet so I've been able to use the ideas and work out the patterns for myself but it would be difficult for anyone with little experience.
