CHAPTER 1

Before You Begin

Unlike most crochet patterns, those in this book specify no gauge, no material requirements and no hook sizes.

That is because each stitch can be worked in your choice of yarn to vary the size and appearance of each stitch to fit your project.

The photos show Swatch 42 (page 47) worked in 3 different weights of yarn and 3 different hook sizes. You can see how the yarn will change the look of the stitch.

When choosing the material and hook for your project, you may wish to do some experimenting with a variety of materials until you achieve the appearance and texture that pleases you.

The stitch patterns photographed throughout this book were all made with worsted-weight yarn and a size I aluminum hook.

Working directly into afghan edge, single crochet edging is worked directly into the crochet fabric. Work one or more rounds of single crochet edging right around you afghan.

Begin by holding the afghan with right side facing you. Make a row of single crochet stitches into the edge, spacing the stitches evenly all the way around the afghan. Work 3 stitches into each corner or chain 2 for corner, join round with slip stitch into first single crochet.


Multiples

A multiple is the number of chains required for each repeat of the stitch pattern; to this we may then add a specified number of chains to make the pattern end correctly.

If a pattern specifies a multiple of 6 plus 2, for example, you need to make a starting chain in multiples of 6 (12, 18, 24, etc): then add a final 2 chains. The number of chains given after plus in a multiple is added only once.

Helpful Hint: When working a long foundation chain, add a few extra chains to ensure that the first row of the pattern will not run out of chains; then at the end of the first row, rip out any extra chains.

I have a lot of scraps of yarn and wanted to do something with them. I got inspired to make a blanket with squares so I could learn some new patterns but be able to put the blocks in a blanket. When I saw this book, I couldn't wait to get it. The directions and photographs make it easy to figure out the pattern directions if you aren't familiar with crocheting. It gives a lot of helpful hints, is clear and concise and full of wonderful ideas.
