Book Summary

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.
