Overview

A collection of unique and sophisticated crochet designs!

Enjoy Yumiko Alexander's showcase of eighteen clean, sophisticated crochet designs. Her garments feature eye-catching construction based on very simple lines that come together in unexpected ways. Stitch patterns have central focus here, as the silhouettes or shapes are kept simple to emphasize the crocheted fabric. Yumiko's pieces are versatile enough that they can be dressed up or down according to your fancy.

Yumiko takes her inspiration from the natural world–tide-swept sand, shells, coral, shale rock formations, the colors of sunset. Her nature-inspired palette is brought to life using luscious yarns that are as pleasing to the hand as they are to the eye. These designs will appeal to crocheters seeking a more upscale look in their garments. Rustic Modern Crochet features designs in subtle earth tones and warm sunset hues that hold a cross-generational appeal.

The patterns are versatile, and can go with just about any style. They are easy to follow, partially charted and work up quickly. I just love this book.
