Synopsis

From the best-selling author who brought you Blueprint Crochet, Robyn Chachula presents yet another approachable resource on the basics of crochet design. This friendly introduction to sweater and garment construction will give you a deeper understanding of working with crochet, and help you make better-fitting garments in the process.



In a collection of 16 patterns, Robyn focuses on four basic garment types and their variations-sewn-together panels in a "classic" construction style (including raglan, drop-sleeve, and side-saddle sleeve construction); unique construction (in which garments are constructed either side-to-side or from the bottom up, around the shoulder, and back down); motif construction (in which garments are created entirely from granny squares or other motifs); and top-down (both round and raglan types). In each chapter Robyn focuses on one key lesson, such as increasing by hook size, making an invisible seam, controlling stretch in garments, and shaping. Throughout the book, these lessons will offer you guidance, including ways to give garments a polished and sophisticated look through various tricks and finishing techniques.



A perfect introduction to the building blocks of crochet design, Blueprint Crochet Sweaters breaks down something as intimidating-sounding as garment design into easily digestible parts, offering a deeper appreciation and understanding of constructing crochet for your own personal style.
