Creating Crochet Fabric
Experimenting With Hook, Yarn & StitchPaperback - 2010
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 colorful African designs. Fifteen projects move readers from theory into practice.
