The book that I am reading this week is titled The WI Creative Guide to Crochet by Pauline Turner.
About the book
Pauline Turner is among the best known crochet designers.
In this book she has gathered together an exciting collection of new and versatile patterns.
They range from shimmering evening batwing sweater and sumptuous mohair waistcoats to lacy summer tops and warm country jackets.
Each project is illustrated in full colour, revealing the rich textures and patterns which can be achieved with some of the inspiring yarns now on the market.
The book is divided into three sections- progressing from every simple projects to more demanding patterns as your confidence and skill develops.
A techniques section at the back provides step-by-step instruction for all the stitches described accompanied by clear line diagrams.
Whether you are an enthusiastic beginner or very experienced this book will have you reaching for some dazzling new yarn and a crochet hook.
