Looking forward to trying the patterns in this technique.

This book probably warrents a higher rating, but since I have not tried any of the patterns, I feel I can t give it the 4 that it really deserves Cute patterns, common sense but never seen before method Can t wait to try out a 3D project from here This book is intended for experienced crocheters Some of the designs are very nice However, as much as I love crochet, I often think that in clothes it can never look as elegant as knitted items, so to me these are not fashion forward designs Still, worth looking at if you want to make crocheted clothes that don t look boxy And there are definitely a few designs I d try. Want a crochet pattern that isn t hard to master This is the book for you I ve been working on Christmas gifts from this book and I m reluctant to return it to the library. I love this book The patterns are simple and the results are gorgeous. A book of uniquely fitted items that don t have any increases or decreases All the fitting comes from what she calls graduated stitching Her design method takes advantage of the varying heights of different crochet stitches in order to cup the fabric to fit It seems very simple and yet clever Pick up this book to learn a new way of designing crochet clothing to fit.The patterns themselves are mostly not my style, although I do like the little black dress featured on the cover that s why I picked up this book in the first place Some of the others look a little dated to me, perhaps because the yarns look a little too acrylic to me and or they look a little grandma Other patterns that I could consider the hemp choker, the smooth headband, and the textured belt. Crochet that fits shaped fashions without increases of decreases by Mary Jane Hall.I really love the striped, sleeveless turtleneck sweater which is a colorful high necked tank top in cool cotton and is simple enough for a total beginner crocheter Gauge 14sc and 11 sc rows on 3 8cm and 16dc and 9 dc rows on 4 10cm on 4mm crochet hook and you ll need 10 balls for 50g 92yds 2balls of each other desired at least 4 colors to make it look good.128 pages filled with tons of crochet projects like belts, tops, hats, scarves and headbands.I would recommend this to beginner crochet wannabes like myself for some good projects that are simple enough while being cute that you ll actually use or give it away as gifts.
