Hooked on Crochet is the first learn-to-crochet book to feature fashion-led projects that will capture the imagination of anyone who wants to learn from scratch, as well as inspiring those who can already crochet with a new design collection. Initially trained in fashion, author Ruth Maddock has a design-led focus and excels at designing items that are on-trend and wearable or useful in the home.
Taking learners from absolute beginner level, Hooked on Crochet devotes a chapter to each of the key crochet stitches, starting with the complete basics and gradually building in complexity. Written in an easy, informal style, each chapter contains detailed photo instructions, hints, tips and projects so that even the complete beginner can gain the satisfaction of creating a project right from the start of their crochet journey.
The twenty-four projects are aimed at crocheters of all ages, from trendy teens to yummy mummies, glamorous grannies and even daring daddies! In this book, you will learn how to follow both written and diagrammatic patterns, and, with the help of Ruth's clear instructions, you'll be creating beautiful crocheted pieces in no time - from clothing and accessories through to toys and home decor.
