What is Crochet Traditions?

Spacer 15x15 pixels

It's Lacy

Crochet Traditions Fall 2012 includes contemporary renderings of vintage patterns designed to mimic both Armenian and Battenburg lace, but it also illustrates the beauty and variety of several crocheted-lace techniques. A whole section is devoted to lace, which just might prove that crochet is the perfect lace technique after all. Learn six separate motifs in one knockout Clones Irish lace project. Filet and broomstick lace patterns are also included.


It's Worldly

Travel to India to learn about the tradition of crocheting coins into purses. Visit Sweden and meet Berit Westmann, a lifelong crocheter working to teach and preserve the history of crochet in her country--and slip-stitch crochet a pair of mittens based on one of her designs. Explore the tapestry crocheted hats of the Foumban people of Cameroon in western Africa and make your own.


It's Fun

Discover a section devoted to fun vintage crochet patterns. We've included a doll's dress, a sweet donkey based on a 1936 Needlecraft Magazine pattern, a cat, and a lamb. Create your own lacy fruit basket in hemp cord. Tapestry- and slip-stitch crochet your own colorwork socks based on a nineteenth-century mystery sock.


It's Historical

As with PieceWork and all of its special issues, the projects are unbeatable, but it's the history we love. Crochet Traditions Fall 2012 is full of rich stories profiling crocheters of the past and the present, spanning the traditions from 1880s Ireland and Italy to fashion choices of the early twentieth century in America. A grandmother and a great-grandmother's legacy of crocheted work create fond memories in the lives of two authors and led to two designs based on the original work.

Good variety
Have just started to bead crochet and was looking for ideas, this was more than that. Love the detailed description of techniques as I am fairly new to crochet. U Tube is great but I still need that paper next to me! Review by Susan (Posted on 8/7/2015)
