Kings County Pork Pie Hat
Crocheters will satisfy their hunger for cool things to create by feasting their eyes on Brett Bara’s Clever Crocheted Accessories. Brett, the former editor of Crochet Today, collects twenty-five unique small crochet patterns that make perfect gifts-though you may be tempted to keep them all for yourself!
The idea curator, Brett shares a first-rate lineup of projects that appeal to beginners and experts alike, from the porkpie crochet hat and a tap to drapey shawls to cozy men’s socks, and bags. Crochet techniques covered in the book include Tunisian crochet, broomstick lace, and Bruges lace.
Created by an all-star roster of designers such as Robyn Chachula, Doris Chan, Drew Emborsky, Linda Permann, and Vickie Howell, each project possesses that “wow” factor crocheters long for.
