Overview

Robyn Chachula's first book, Blueprint Crochet, introduced American readers to crochet stitch diagrams used by crocheters throughout the world, demonstrated on contemporary designs for women. Although written-out directions are more common to American readers, diagrams are the standard in international crochet patterns. Once crocheters understand the symbols, the diagrams are often easier to follow than written directions. Now with Baby Blueprint Crochet, Robyn offers the opportunity to practice these new skills and techniques on smaller, less daunting projects.

The modern baby garment and accessory patterns in Baby Blueprint Crochet are designed to appeal to moms and kids as well as crocheters: no frilly stuff, no scratchy yarns that make the baby red, and no heirloom afghans to keep out of baby's hands. Instead, the projects are contemporary and bright, fun, fashionable, useful, and launder easily. The nineteen projects include girls' garments, such as a jumper and tunic; boys' garments, including a jacket and a vests; accessories from hats to slippers and even diaper covers; and home items including blankets and toys.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"As with her other books, Chachula pays special attention to detail in her patterns and finishing. There's plenty of help in this book to get you through each project. Beginners and more experienced crocheters will benefit equally from the details Chachula includes." - Craft Gossip

"Robyn is innovative in her construction and designs, while still down to earth and realistic about what little kids will wear. This book is a must-have." - Petite Purls

"...the most wonderful baby book for crochet that I've read... As usual with Robyn (and Interweave Press), the how-to section and illustrations are magnificent. Even a new crocheter could make many of these great designs, and they'd grow into a more experienced and adventurous crocheter." - Annie Modesitt

"All of the pieces have practical features only a designing-mom could think of like snap openings for the booties, and easy-on necklines on all the sweaters." - Amy O'Neill Houck

"It's the accessories that really sway me into thinking this book would be a worthwhile investment for prolific crocheters. There are several creative accessories patterns that I could see making many times over, possibly even several times for each new arrival." - About.com Guide to Crochet

"Modern, Cheery, Useful Designs." - Annie's Attic

"I love the designs...this a great teaching book for a beginner or an advanced crocheter. I love how the charts and schematics are done in such a clear way that you have no difficulty using them. The photography is incredible." - At First Glance: Review of Knitting

"We've all seen thousands of baby wearables, cute as can be, but Robyn has a very original approach." - Crochet Insider

"Her style is modern and wearable, and her designs make knitters do a double take." - Linda Permann, author, Crochet Adorned

"She's a pro at construction and fit (after all, she's also a structural engineer, so her brain just works that way). Robyn really puts a lot of thought into how to engineer a design, how to select a yarn that will really make your work pay off and how to make crochet look modern and stylish - so you know you will never be disappointed when making one of her patterns." - Brett Bara, host, Knit & Crochet Today

"Robyn is a huge crochet talent and her eye for all things baby make this book a complete treat. For you new crocheters Robyn is a genius and experienced teacher. She is known for breaking down instructions clearly and for visual crochet, which is the use of charts. Robyn's instructional section in the book is like none other." - Susan B. Anderson, author, Spud and Chloe at the Farm and Itty-Bitty Toys

"It is simply ADORABLE," - Kristin Omdahl, author, Crochet So Fine and Wrapped in Crochet

"Robyn Chachula has once again proven that she is a top designer in the crochet industry. Her new book Baby Blueprint Crochet - Irresistible Projects for Little Ones is, well, irresistible!" - Drew Emborsky, The Crochet Dude

"Irresistible, Darling, & Super Cute are what I would describe when surfing through this fabulous book." - Michael Sellick, The Crochet Crowd

"Baby Blueprint Crochet, Irresistible Projects for Little Ones; by Robin Chachula; a collection of 19 soft and sweet projects for babies and toddlers. This explores several crochet techniques, including colorwork, crochet applique, sculptural crochet, Tunisian and combining stitches. Designs are for both boys and girls, no fussy fibers or embellishments, but still fun and original." - Quick and Easy Crochet Magazine
