200 Crochet Flowers, Embellishments & Trims
This book offers a comprehensive collection of crochet stitches, ranging from the very simple to the most complex; the traditional to the innovative. Use it as an inspirational guide to making your own unique crocheted pieces, whether you are creating beautiful garments and accessories for yourself, or stylish adornments for your home.
The book is divided into four sections: Flowers, Trims, Fabrics and Motifs. Each section has
its own color palette to inspire you.
- There is a great range of designs in the Flowers section, from the natural to the more flamboyant. Add these to garments and interior items, or use them to make jewelry.
- Use the edgings and borders in the Trims section to add an individual touch to your next crocheted or knitted garment or a crocheted trim to ready-made clothing.
- Included in the Fabrics section are texture, lace and colour patterns; make them into panels to add to ready-made items or make a patchwork throw of your favorites.
- There are three shapes of Motifs: squares, circles and hexagons; traditional alongside new.
Ideas for joining motifs to make different items are given later in this section.
Each section starts with a showcase of inspirational projects that offer you different ideas about how to use the designs; use these as a springboard for designing your own versions. For example, the Cushion Panel could be worked in texture or colour stitches. The Patchwork Scarf shows you how to combine any number of stitches together; this uses lace fabrics but you could mix in motifs too.
With 200 colourful designs, 20 inspiring project ideas, and written instructions plus charts throughout, your only question will be: ‘What’s next for a quick crochet makeover?!’
