This exceptionally thorough guide walks the crocheter through everything from selecting yarn to shaping, to weaving in ends, blocking, and caring for the finished garment, and everything in between.
I think what excites me the most about The Crocheter’s Skill-Building Workshop is the excitement I feel for future projects. Using this work as a guide, I feel as though I am more equipped to create my own designs. This book is an exciting new resource to add to your home library!
In this brilliantly comprehensive book, Dora has given us the benefit of her hard-earned experience in making crocheted fabric. She presents, issue by issue, many of the lessons we designers have learned along the way as we have struggled with our own designs, the flashes of insights and Ah-HA solutions one can only achieve through repeated experimentation. All I can say is, brava, Dora, for giving crocheters of all skill levels this remarkable guide!
In this indispensable book, Ohrenstein covers everything any crocheter, from beginner to expert, needs to know. She explores oft-overlooked topics like the wide variety of hook-insertion points, and how to increase and decrease in a lace pattern — all accompanied by clear photo tutorials, swatches, and stitch diagrams.
