Why should knitters have all the fun when it comes to colourwork? If you prefer using one hook to two needles but wish you could crochet colourful garments like knitters then this collection of colourful crochet clothing is for you. Whether it’s a sweater with a decorative yoke or a matching beanie and glove set in a Scandinavian-inspired design, this collection of crochet patterns shows that it’s not just knitters who can make colorwork sweaters and accessories – crochet can be just as versatile once you know the techniques.
This collection features 16 crochet patterns for clothes and accessories to liven up anyone’s wardrobe.These techniques allow crocheters to create the same stunning colourwork garments as knitters. Includes 14 graded crochet patterns for tops and sweaters in nine different sizes.
Sandra says, "This book isn’t just a collection of wonderful and colorful patterns. It is also a comprehensive guide to our favourite crochet colorwork techniques. It’s the book that you will want to return time and time again to refresh your memory. Perfect for makers and designers alike. There are step-by-step instructions and photography explaining all the different crochet colorwork techniques with detailed instructions about how to change colour, carrying floats and the importance of swatching and gauge. There are also general techniques about how to choose colors, how different yarns create different effects and how to substitute yarn.
The collection also includes a number of garment construction techniques so you can build your crochet clothing skills as well as learning the colorwork techniques. Some of the techniques included are: top down construction; circular yoke; shaping raglan sleeves; vertical construction; shaping with short rows and how to make faux I-cords. A number of the garments are crocheted in the round while others are worked flat so you can build up your construction skills as you go and choose your favourite methods. All of the garments are graded for nine different sizes, ranging from a size 32 inch bust up to a 64 inch bust, making them size inclusive and the accessories are graded from small to large so you can make one for everyone in the family."
