With a wide variety of styles ranging from the traditional to the contemporary, 200 Crochet Designs is a wonderful reference for any crocheter, from the beginner to the experienced. The book presents each pattern in clear step-by-step instructions with a crochet chart and a colour photograph.
The introduction provides an essential guide for beginners, explaining how to crochet in clear and simple steps with illustrations.
Getting started with crochet couldn’t be simpler – in no time at all, the crafter will be able to apply the basic stitches to create pretty crochet squares that can be used to make accessories, or turned into beautiful decorations for the home. More experienced crocheters will be tempted to get creative with the many new patterns and configurations, including playful colour work and pretty shaped motifs.
The finished squares can be sewn or crocheted together to create beautiful blankets, afghans and scarves, placemats, pillows, garlands and more. The chapter on shapes features stars, flowers and butterflies that can be used to embellish just about anything.
