It comes as no surprise that many of us are hooked on crochet! 'Weekend Crochet' is the perfect book to transform a beginner crocheter into a devoted enthusiast. The book begins with fully illustrated sections of basic techniques. Once the reader is comfortable with the process, he/she can create projects, ranging from fashionable cover-ups and accessories to contemporary throws and pillows. Whether it's a hippy-chic granny square scarf or a cuddly baby blanket, a textured pillow or evening jewellery, the projects in this weekend primer will offer a rewarding and stress-free crochet experience to keep first-timers inspired. Each project is accompanied by easy-to-follow instructions and a full-colour photograph to make the stitch process all the more enjoyable.
