Create bold, modern, and fun tapestry crochet designs with this unique crochet stitch dictionary!
One of the most important tools in any crocheter's toolbox is a stitch dictionary, an essential reference packed with possibilities. The Hooktionary is the first, and only, crochet stitch dictionary to feature tapestry crochet motifs. From unicorns and bumblebees to bold, graphic designs, the 150 motifs this book includes are perfect for the modern maker. Plus, five 'choose your own adventure' projects allow you to mix and match motifs into one-of-a-kind designs that reflect your tastes.
Inspired by Andrea Rangel's Alterknit Stitch Dictionary, Brenda K.B. Anderson has created a crochet counterpart. Unlike other tapestry crochet pattern collections, which focus on single crochet stitches, Anderson has used her experience of which crochet stitches pair well with tapestry crochet to create beautiful, clear, patterns and wearable fabrics. All of the designs are crocheted in the round, so that you can keep the front of the work facing you, and then steeked - a technique that has not been covered in any other crochet book! There is also comprehensive advice on choosing stitches and fixing mistakes.
