New techniques are fun to learn and pretty easy, once you have the right tools! I write books that are specifically focused on teaching you, the crocheter, how to learn that new technique and how to apply it to your every day crafting experience.
Step into Crochet is the most comprehensive guide to creating crocheted socks. Author Rohn Strong shares 19 patterns for cozy socks, along with a wide variety of techniques, in this must-have reference and pattern book.
The first section of Step into Crochet focuses on construction methods: you’ll learn basic toe-up and cuff-down construction, while being introduced to a variety of heel and toe treatments. Plus, you’ll find out what makes a certain heel/toe combination perfect for socks!
The pattern section includes 19 socks ranging from basic ribbed and simple socks (great for customizing) to more technique-based pieces, focusing on colorwork, lace, cables, and motifs.
Whether you’re ready to jump into crocheting socks feet first, or just dipping your toe in to try out a few fun patterns, Step into Crochet is your go-to resource.
Written in 2015 after a class on crochet shawls, Crochet Lacy Shawls was the book that almost wasn’t. After a short hiatus the book was published in 2018.
An eye-catching, delicate shawl brightens up any look, and because the pieces are crocheted, they work up quickly, so you’ll be enjoying your new shawls before you know it. A variety of construction methods are explored in the 27 patterns, and each style of shawl includes a beginner, intermediate, and advanced pattern, so you can easily find a pattern that suits your skills and then build upon what you learn. Try a basic pi shawl, triangle shawl, stole, or poncho, then try the same construction with a more advanced stitch pattern in the intermediate or advanced pattern to enhance your skills.
You’ll have a wide array of gorgeous shawls in no time!
Modern patterns with a retro vibe, these pieces are always in style!
