Playing with color, yarn, and crochet stitches/patterns, that’s what this book is all about. This book is a true inspiration for both beginner and advanced crocheters, to create beautiful and one of a kind crochet projects. New crochet stitches and patterns, as well as familiar ones, and sometimes an unexpected mix of both, are used in these 20-plus designs. The book features garments (like shawls, a vest, cardigans – an adult, and a baby version – a child-size poncho), as well as blankets, baskets, rugs, bags, and cushions. A wide range of styles, inspirational photography, very clear project descriptions and crochet charts will leave only one question unanswered: where to start first? Most projects are crocheted using the many pretty colors in the DMC Natura natural fiber range (“XL”, “Medium” and “Just Cotton”) – a wonderfully soft eco-friendly produced yarn, suitable for even the most delicate baby skin, and still machine washable. Others are made from DMC’s superwash merino “Woolly”, which is 100% wool, lovely soft, and also machine washable.
