Another awesome book to add to my collection! Stunning things to crochet! There are a few “easy” things, but more suited to someone with a bit more crochet experience. That being said, I think as long as you concentrate on what you're doing, you should be able to everything in here! The patterns are well written, and give yarn meterage, and yarn suggestions which is always very helpfull

Description

Join the crochet revolution! Young designers everywhere are making crochet their own with hip, edgy, stylish designs that are toppling the frumpy, uncool image of the craft. Crochet Me: Designs to Fuel the Crochet Revolution by Kim Werker, editor of Interweave Crochet magazine and founder of the online magazine CrochetMe.com, offers 18 designs from emerging crochet artists certain to get those hooks moving. How did the crochet renaissance get started? Learn the historical and feminist contexts leading up to this crochet uprising, plus short essays about experimenting with crochet to empower readers to take design risks. The projects themselves run the spectrum from crochet jewelry to thigh-high stockings, retro bags, scarves, sweaters, shrugs, camis, home decor objects, and more. Projects explore color, texture, design, embellishment, and how to customize patterns to fit personal style. Basic crochet techniques will be covered along with tutorials on sizing, design, and special techniques. Up-and-coming designers are profiled throughout the book to give an entertaining and inspiring insight into this new generation of crocheters-what inspires them, how they find community with other crocheters, and creative ideas for breaking the rules and representing their individual crochet style. This book will empower everyone to start their own crochet revolution. This is crochet for the people!
