The word "crochet" itself derives from the French "croc," meaning a hook (or crook); an old scottish name for crochet is "shepherd's knitting." It is one of the most portable and flexible of crafts, requiring only a hook and some yarn. Once you have mastered the basic techniques, you can create a fascinating variety of effects.

Ultimate Knit Stitch Bible

750 knit, purl, cable, lace and colour stitches

Author: Collins & Brown

Publisher: Pavilion Books

ISBN: 1910904228

Category: Crafts & Hobbies

Page: 288

View: 4242

This jam-packed stitch bible begins with a guide to the best tools and equipment, detailed instructions on how to knit, and information on reading stitch diagrams and understanding knitting abbreviations. The stitches are divided into five sections. The first section introduces basic combinations of knit and purl. These two basic stitches can be configured into patterns and constructed into all kinds of fabrics. The second section features cable and aran stiches. These are characterized by a large central panel bordered by varying numbers of side panels on a textural background. For the beginner knitter, lace knitting may seem daunting as it requires a little more technique. However, the sense of accomplishing a simple eyelet will encourage you to attempt and experiment with the more complex and challenging effects. The fourth section focuses on colourwork, with most of the designs drawing inspiration from traditional Scottish and Scandinavian patterns knitted using the Fair Isle technique, which uses design repeats and motifs in horizontal and vertical bands, and in small and large panels. Intarsia knitting is a similar technique, though patterns often involve larger blocks of colour and picture motifs. The final section concentrates on edgings and trims. From simple yet decorative ribs to intricate lace borders, there is an almost endless variety of edgings. They offer a quick way of turning a plain knit garment into something supremely stylish. Whether you’re a knitting novice who is picking up a pair of needles for the first time, or a seasoned professional with years of experience, you will find inspiration and technical know-how within these pages.

A Complete Reference with Step-by-Step Techniques

Publisher: Pavilion Books

Category: Crafts & Hobbies

Page: 300

View: 7784

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.
