Crochet Techniques

Over the last 200 years crochet in its various forms has given rise to an unknown number of stitches. Crochet Techniques brings together instructions for stitches and their variations to create five colourful and attractive samplers – two based on Classic stitches, and one on Jacquard stitch, a fourth based on Tunisian crochet (also called Tricot), and another based on Crochenit (sometimes known as ‘on the double’ crochet). Working these patterns will help you gain a solid, well-grounded knowledge of crochet. Many of the stitches are a breeze, but others require a little more concentration – but there’s no equal to the feeling of accomplishment that mastering them will give you. As you make your way through the techniques you will discover a range of interesting and useful stitches that you’ll want to use over and over again- not just as rugs, perhaps, but to create items of your own. You will also find discussion of common crochet problems and tips for solving them.
