Overview


Ready, Set, Crochet gives the many beginners taking up this trendy craft all the basics and beyond plus hip projects, in a cool stand-up format.

Young women are discovering crochet, and women who made granny squares in college are picking it up again. Forget doilies and afghans, though -- this book is all about trendy hats, chunky tops, camisoles, even string bikinis. Ready, Set, Crochet features patterns and instructions for must-have fashion accessories. The book's unique package stands up, putting the open page at eye level so learners can easily refer to the how-to photos and patterns. The book then closes securely with a Velcro flap so it can pop in a bag and go along wherever they like to crochet.

  • These projects are definitely not your granny's doilies: trendy bags and hats, chunky tops, a romantic camisole, and a miniskirt.
  • Over 200 bright color photographs and diagrams.
