Beyond-the-Square Crochet Motifs

Beyond-the-Square Crochet MotifsExcellent For once every thing you need to work these motifs Charts, pictures and written instructions Having a bag full of crochet thread in different textures and pastels can actually see a project for these As other reviewers have stated, this is muchof a reference guide than a project guide But anyone past the beginner crocheter should be able to come up with a project for these interesting shapes Eckman s patterns are fantastic to follow I love the fact that she has diagrams with every pattern, as I follow along much better visually than with all of the written garbage just my preference There are tons of interesting shapes and I have even started on a series of hexagons for an afghan Granny squares have always seemed too dowdy to me, but a hexagon pieced blanket has just the right amount of edge and beauty Highly recommended for anyone who needs another great crochet reference guide I like to have it along with my trusty harmony guides. There S A Lot To Love About The Classic Square Crochet Motif But If It S Hip To Make Squares, Imagine The Excitement Of Making Circles, Stars, Triangles, And Hexagons Beyond The Square Crochet Motifs Introduces Crocheters To ThanDesigns Of Every Size And Shape Full Color Photographs Capture The Intricate Details And Color Work Of Each Motif, And Clear Step By Step Instructions Are Presented In Both Text And Visual Formats With Its Unexpected Range Of Shapes, Designs, And Color Ideas, Beyond The Square Crochet Motifs Will Keep Enthusiasts Happy For A Very Long Time I d love a copy of this book The written instructions and symbol charts are both clear and easy to read The book is coil bound, so its lays flat and makes it that much easier to read The general beginning instructions have information that most crocheters can learn from.The motifs are interesting and can be adapted to larger projects with a little trial and error I tried out quite a few of the motifs and flipped through it looking forI created two different hats using different circular motif patterns, and several flowers to attach to the hats from both circle and hexagon motifs.I learned some new joining techniques from this book to, which I have used in all kinds of different crochet projects including thread projects I recommend this book to anyone who likes to design their own projects and patterns I need to get one of these for my very own Great book Worth 10 times what I pd for it.I ve been crocheting for over 50 years and I have learned many things from this little book Even a beginner with just a basic knowledge of crocheting will love this book Every detail is described perfectly It has both written and diagrammed instructions I prefer the diagrams and my granddaughter prefers the written instructions We both love it Thank you This book pretty much took the granny out of granny square There aremotifs than you could probably get to in a lifetime of casual crafting The instructions and diagrams are really helpful well written The color combinations are bright, bold and modern something famously lacking in most crochet pattern books You are inspired to grab your hook knowing it ll look great, rather than creating 3 4 different swatches with fingers crossed that the pattern CAN look up to date with different colors The beautiful layout of this book makes it a keeper must buy. 3.5 5 starsI didn t read this cover to cover, but I read most of the introductory, explanatory sections, and then tried a few patterns I liked many of the motifs, and will keep this book in mind the next time I want to put an afghan together However, I didn t follow some of the author s explanations on how to accomplish some of the basic and special techniques, so this isn t going to be a go to reference source for me. I found lots of new patterns The author is very enthusiastic and encouraging This book has both written and graphic instructions for each motif This is an excellent resource for both the novice and experienced crocheter. So many choices Picture, diagram, and directions, so it should be easy to create the designs. This is the MOST beautiful crochet motifs shapes book I have EVER come across First of all, it is spiral bound, which is GREAT to crochet with the pattern having the book open on it s own to follow the pattern The motifs shapes are GORGEOUS There are not just squares There are circles, triangles, hexagons, andI have read this book through a few times, and have looked longingly at the beautiful motifs, thinking about crocheting them In EVERY crochet book, you ALWAYS learn something new, and this book is no exception I have crocheted for years now, and I ve learned a LOT of new things I never knew The directions are very easy to follow, and it also includes directions for following a chart while crocheting Following a chart can be very difficult, and this book makes it so easy I have never come across this in a crochet book, having directions in words and directions to follow a chart as well The illustrations are very clear and concise to see the different stitches, for beginners, as well If you had no photos, the words for the directions for the charts alone are as easy to follow just by themselves I am VERY glad I bought this book This book is definitely a KEEPER It will stay in my Library for years to come
