Check Out These 7 Exquisite Crochet Patterns at 'Crocheting School'
As a young girl, I loved crocheting, embroidering and doing other wool and thread-based craft. As I grew older and the cares of life piled up, I found that I had laid aside crocheting completely. Not Good!
To begin crocheting again, I started looking for a comprehensive book with easy instructions and exquisite patterns that I could use on their own or mix and match. I found just what I was looking for in this book!
is really a complete crocheting course! It is chock full of lovely basic as well as more complicated and unique crochet stitches, patterns and techniques, which makes it a handy reference for any crochet lover – beginner, intermediate or advanced. ’Crocheting School’
What I particularly like about the layout of this book is that the instructions are easy to understand and there is a handy guide to the front of the book for all the crochet abbreviations used.Additionally, there are clear photos of each pattern and technique at varying stages of completion, so that you can see exactly what your crochet pattern should look like from beginning to end.
If you are thinking about learning to crochet or have just started crocheting, you will be shown:
- -What crochet material you need (hooks, yarn, needles, pins & bobbins).
- -How to hold the yarn and crochet hook to begin crocheting.
- -How to follow directions when reading a crochet pattern.
- -Some common symbols that are used for crochet diagram (pattern) directions.
- -Some basic stitches that are foundation stitches used in nearly every crochet pattern.
If you crochet at the intermediate or advanced level, you will be shown how to maneuver some often tricky techniques, such as:
- -Multiple stitch increases and decreases.
- -Making projects with geometric shapes.
- -Making edgings & lace borders.
- -Joining squares.
- -Embroidering over crochet, and more.
If I have piqued your interest enough, then you can go out and get your very own affordable copy and give them a try or make a gift of it to someone who loves to crochet.
