Simple Crochet

  • by Erika Knight

    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.

    • Erika Knight:

      My yarn collection is concise and considered with fibres and colours carefully selected so that you can be confident in choosing a beautiful, quality yarn for whatever you wish to create.

      My ethos has always been to keep things simple: to support British manufacturing where possible, to promote sustainable, natural fibres and to celebrate traditional skills. Having worked in the textile industry for most of my career and in many different guises, I am passionate about innovation and heritage in equal balance.

      When you are taking the time to craft something by hand, it is as much about the process as the final outcome, so for me, it is important to use the best possible materials. This of course means using different yarns and fibres for different purposes and understanding the characteristics of each.

      “I believe it is an inherent human trait to construct fabric in order to catch, clothe, nurture and decorate”
