Designer Crochet is your source for sophisticated and figure-flattering garments with great drape and shape. Using lightweight yarns and a beautiful variety of stitch patterns and motifs, you'll create jackets and cardigans, a layering tank and a floor-sweeping skirt, a convertible vest/wrap and matching winter accessory set, and more, with every design built to flatter most body types. Beginner crocheters can learn the basics using easy-to-follow tutorials while advanced crocheters will enjoy mastering special techniques. This is a complete wardrobe in a single book for sizes small through 5X. Each new stitch is explained in easy steps with accompanying photographs and diagrams and is followed up with a project showing you how to utilize your new found skills. The 20 modern projects range from a super simple cafetiere cosy to a granny square blanket, plus there is a section dedicated to "extreme crochet," using t-shirt yarn to create larger-than-life crocheted creations. In addition, crochet charts are included for each stitch and pattern with the author explaining, in detail, how to read and follow charts. The author's chatty, informal style will take you on your journey from newbie to fully-fledged crocheter and before you know it you'll be crocheting and making fantastic homemade presents for friends and family.
