The second volume of The Complete Guide to Crochet: Sweet and Simple Crochet Projects is now on sale.
With the summer holidays behind us, it’s time to pick up your hook and start thinking about autumn and winter makes. This latest edition of Sweet & Simple Crochet Projects from the Inside Crochet team is packed with ideas and inspiration, from practical accessories such as woolly mitts, cosy cowls and stylish shawls, to adorable gifts for children and beautiful pieces for your home.
If you’ve never picked up a hook before, or need a quick refresher, turn first to our How to Crochet section where you’ll find all the tips and stitches you need to get started. Plus, we’ve included some brilliant features on techniques to improve your crochet skills to give a really polished finish, from working with a chainless foundation to designer Nicki Trench’s tutorial on changing your yarn colour, or why not have a
go at the seriously cute and addictive Japanese art of amigurumi?
We know from experience that crocheters quickly become yarn addicts, so alongside larger projects such as beautiful blankets and easy garments, we’ve also got some fantastic stashbusters such as my daisy chain necklace, Tryfan bookmark, and floral lace collar. While on, Tracey Todhunter reveals some nifty ways to revamp and recycle favourite garments with pretty woolly “tattoos” and other small embellishments.
Whichever projects you decide to make, once you get the crochet bug, you’ll be amazed by what you can produce with just a hook and a little bit of yarn!
