Synopsis

Want to make the crochet pieces you're seeing everywhere, but don't know how? We designed Getting Started Crochet just for you! Judith L.Swartz comfortably demystifies the technique, the jargon, and the process, easily bringing novices "into the loop." It's all spelled out in pictures and text: you'll begin with a trip to the yarn store for all the necessary tools and to learn how to shop for yarn and equipment. Clear diagrams will address how to hold the hook and yarn and how to form stitches. Next come the basic stitches, one at a time, and your first project...a simple scarf. After you master the stitches you'll learn:

Shaping techniques and how to make an evening bag, a simple top, and some fun and funky toys!

Working in rounds and working motifs, which lead to more intriguing projects like a Color Study Lap Blanket

Finishing with crochet edgings to sweeten up a tank top and much more
