Book Description

In 150 Favorite Crochet Motifs from Japan's Kazekobo Studio, popular knitwear designer Yoko Hatta shows you creative ways to use a little leftover yarn and your own sense of design. You'll find round, square, triangle, polygon and Irish crochet motifs  from really simple to deliciously intricate all waiting to be incorporated into your latest needlework projects. Make scarves and blankets using the all-time favourite granny squares, or shawls using polygons. Join circles (or throw in some squares) to make fun wall hangings, room dividers and more. Use beautiful Irish crochet motifs to embellish garments, form the outside of a bag, or make into a brooch. Find plenty of ideas for using colour, from offbeat mono-and-duo-chromatic arrangements to splashy, multi-coloured pieces. Mastering even just a few of these motifs will open you to endless possibilities. Separate sections explain all the crochet symbols used and show you how to assemble the arrangements. Published in the same format as the best-selling Tuttle Publishing knitting dictionaries (Japanese Knitting Stitch Bible, 250 Japanese Knitting Stitches, Yoko Hatta's Japanese Knitting Stitches from Tokyo's Kazekobo Studio), this book finally brings the same access and knowledge to crocheters.
