Inside Crochet

Tunisian crochet is a mystery to some of us traditional hookers. with its long hook and knit-like appearance it seems an insurmountable skill. However, this brand new book by designer Emma Guess dissolves all those new skill anxieties with crisp, modern styling, wearable and useful projects and an especially good step-by-step techniques section. The photography is lovely, ant the bright images and cool, graphic projects instantly encourage one to try out this technique-worth it alone for the beautiful textures and wonderful patterns you can create with loops and hook. 

The cover project- a LOVE wall hanging- is a perfect project to test basic stitches and Tunisian colourwork, while the Sampler Scarf is a beautiful way to explore the fabulous (and fully illustrated) stitch glossary. If you knit and crochet, you'll find that this book combines the best of both crafts, plus there's homeware and accessories that are great stash busters and potential gifts- that is, if don't want to keep these handmade beauties to yourself!
