Simple Crochet is a modern twist on traditional craft, using a stunning range of natural materials. Raffia, leather and string are juts a few of the yarn with which you can crochet, producing a range of elegant textiles for the home. What is more, you need no previous experience! Erika Knight, one of our foremost textile designers, uses only a couple of basic stitches with which to create an innovative range of twenty brilliantly simple projects.
Her appealing and original designs are created in a contemporary colour palette, based on neutrals, with touches of vibrant colour. They fit easily into modern interiors as well as more traditional homes, and range from the most inexpensive round cushion in parcel string to a luxurious leather floor cushion.
The wonderful collection of projects includes cushions in many different guises, as well as rugs and throws in which traditional techniques are given a modern twist – from traditional afghans in cool monochromes to pieced crochet patchworks. Storage boxes, little Turkish slippers, a cover for a cafetiere and a table runner are just some of the more unusual designs in this book.
A short, fully illustrated section shows you how to master the basics of crochet as well as the principal stitches used in the book.
Simple Crochet is a must for anyone who wants to create a simple but beautiful textiles for their home.
