fashion crochet

Okay "my friend to crochet with"! Please teach me! I have a hat on the hook that I started back in July. So far, I stink at learning. I'm gonna get it though. Yep. I am.
Fashion Crochet is a really beautiful book.  The projects are young and cool.  And inspired from the up-to-the-minute runway trends.
It's broken down into 4 different chapters with 30 different projects in total.  Wraps & Scarves, Accessories, Dresses, Skirts & Shorts, Tops & Jumpers.
There is a sketch of each project which is super fun to look at, along with in-depth instructions and ideas on how to make the project your own unique piece.
There is a wide variety of techniques including lace, granny smith squares, intarsia and hairpin crochet.  (Don't be fooled.  I have no idea what hairpin crochet is.  But, hey!  I'm willing to learn.)
Each project also has the inspiration photo from the runway from designers as diverse as Christopher Kane, Marc Jacobs, Gucci and Missoni.  (Those photos are fun to look at, too.)

If you are interested in receiving a copy of Fashion Crochet, please leave a comment between now and Monday, September 16, 5pm EST and the random generator number will choose a winner.

Have a great weekend!

I learned to crochet when I was a kid, but haven't done it since. I guess I just remember some of the bad crochet yarns and patterns from the 80s. This books sounds like it would change my perspective.

I would love this! My grandma taught me how to crochet as a child, and I picked it up again several years ago (I keep trying to learn how to knit, but it seems so much harder to me than crochet- but I'm determined, so maybe someday:)

Prairie Girl said...

Oh yes please! I actually quite enjoy the process of crochet, but knitting needles always seem to find their way into my hands first. Maybe some fresh inspiration would help. :)

I haven't seen stylish crochet clothing in a long time!

And hairping lace is where you crochet between two long pins, leaving you with a block of crochet up the middle with lots and lots of loops up the sides.
