Want to make the crochet pieces you're seeing everywhere, but don't know how to get going? Getting Started Crochet was designed for the total beginner.

Author Judith L. Swartz comfortably demystifies the technique, the jargon, and the process, easily bringing novices "into the loop." It's all spelled out in pictures and text: You'll begin with a trip to the yarn store for all the necessary tools and to learn how to shop for yarn and equipment.

Types and weights of yarn will become comprehensible and you'll learn about gauge and its importance in simple language.

Clear diagrams will address how to hold the hook and yarn and how to form stitches. Next come the basic stitches, one at a time, and your first project . . . a simple scarf.

After you master the stitches, you'll tackle shaping techniques and make an evening bag, a simple top, and some fun and funky toys! Working in rounds easily leads to working motifs and more intriguing projects like the Color Study Lap Blanket. Finish up with edging that sweetens up a shrug.

Resource list, index, and charts complete the picture. With Getting Started Crochet, you'll master this versatile craft in no time!
