“A comprehensive book that belongs on every crafts shelf.” —Booklist
The latest fashion magazines are full of crocheted pieces, but beginning stitchers looking to tap into the trend might not know where to start. Ultimate Crochet Bible is the ideal guide for anyone casting the first time, but is also the definitive reference for more experienced practitioners who just need to brush up on a technique. Filled with more than 400 images, it explains exactly how to create garments, jewelry, accessories, and more, from the basic chain stitch to finishing touches like a picot trim. Additional topics include creating texture, structure and shaping, color work, and embellishments.

Jane Crowfoot taught herself to knit after being inspired by her great-grandmother’s handmade blankets, and then went on to study textile design at Winchester School of Art. She became a design consultant for Rowan Yarns and later worked with Debbie Bliss. Jane is a leader of the recent crochet revival, which has seen knitters all over the world put down their needles and pick up a crochet hook.From Booklist:
The words “bible” and “reference” are not synonymous with “boring.” Crowfoot proves that as she promotes the art of crochet on every page of her excellent guide, beginning with an overview of the craft’s origins and its requirements and necessities (for instance, hooks, needles, and knowledge of how to read a chart). Each chapter truly exposes the how-to details, not only in words but also, most important, in oversize illustrations. Included are a well-explained section of basics (for instance, how to differentiate between front and reverse sides and how to work crochet for left-handed crafters) and specific stitch categories: texture and lace, thread, Tunisian entrelac, color, beads and sequins, edgings, and professional finishing techniques. Shaded sidebars answer typical novice questions, from ideas for storing hooks to how to keep rounds flat. A comprehensive book that belongs on every crafts shelf. --Barbara Jacobs

Descripción PAVILION BOOKS, United Kingdom, 2016. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Now available in paperback, this best-selling title is THE essential guide to crochet. Ultimate Crochet Bible is a definitive reference for all aspects of crochet - from the first chain to the care and maintenance of your projects. The first two chapters are packed with useful information such as choosing and using a hook, how to read a pattern, holding the yarn and basic stitches. Once you are armed with the basics, you can go on to learn about a wide range of techniques. Traditional, lace-weight crochet is covered in the Thread Crochet section. The yarn used tends to be fine and the hooks are small, but this allows you to put more detail into a piece of work. Filet and Irish crochet are covered here. The section on Tunisian and Entrelac Crochet shows how elements of crochet and knitting can be combined. Entrelac is a method of creating square shapes in order to make a textured fabric that resembles basket weave. In Working with Colour, the two main techniques of adding colour to a piece of crochet - Intarsia and Jacquard - are explained. And to create some really exciting effects, you can add beads and sequins to your crochet. It s a relatively easy technique. In addition, there are techniques for edgings, braids, fringes and tassels. Professional Finishing Techniques provides all the know-how you need to take your crochet to a whole new level. But whatever your level of experience, this book will be an invaluable treasure trove of crochet techniques that you will turn to time and time again. Over 35,000 copies sold worldwide.
