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.
Dora Ohrenstein's designs have appeared in Interweave Crochet, knit.1, Crochet Today as well as other crochet books. Dora is also founder and editor of the webzine Crochet Insider www.crochetinsider.com.
