5.0 out of 5 stars Great basic designs book, 12 Jun. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Everyday Crochet (Paperback)
I bought this book on the 5 star reviews and I have not been disappointed
It is American and by the well known crochet designer Doris Chan.
Usually American designs are so often done in chunky/bulky yarns in double(single) crochet resulting in a hard unyeilding fabric
Joy! nothing thicker here than double knitting (or #4 for the USA)
The patterns are all worked from the top down and all in a shell pattern
This makes for unobtrusive shaping. (Bust shaping included too, good!)Slight shame that there is no other stitch pattern but I can live with that, perhaps the yarn can be then an important part of the design.
The yarns are American but brand names are given with yardage so substituting can be done.
All designs go from 30ish inches bust to 50ish some to 60 inch, another advantage of the American designers they have to cater for the larger lady!!
Really good designs cardigans,bolero,jumpers,coats and some belts to add if wanted. Even instructions to make your own button & bead 'cuff' links to close the garments.
I can see me making lots of these designs
Well done Doris a great book.
