INTRODUCTION

Over the years, my pattern-writing style has evolved into a distinct combination of detailed instructions and textured designs. I remember when I was young and I would try to work from a pattern book and the wording was so vague that I would often give up in defeat because I wasn't sure where to place the stitch. I knew how to make all the stitches. I just didn't know where to place them if the pattern wasn't specific enough. I strive to be very clear when I specify where and how to work a stitch, and my followers have learned to expect that. It does make my patterns wordier and much longer than the typical pattern out there, but I hope it helps avoid any possible confusion. Most of all, I love designing and I love texture, so I almost always design for an intermediate skill level. Although this is not a teaching or beginner-level crochet book, many of the designs included are achievable for a determined crocheter at an advanced beginner skill level.

In my first book, Crochet Style, the focus was mainly on trendy designs for adults with some sizes for children also included. In this book, I have focused on babies and children, but I have also included numerous patterns that go all the way up to adult sizes. Here you'll find traditional baby gifts along with photography style props that any crocheter can make and sell in their home-based business. Balancing out those patterns are many new textured hat designs for all ages, as well as a few of my favorites. I have always made a point to include as many sizes as possible in my patterns — and this book is no exception. I hope you enjoy this collection as much as I've enjoyed putting it together!

My original crochet patterns are also available on Etsy, Ravelry and Craftsy. You can find more information about my patterns and books at crochetbyjennifer.com. Now go grab your hook and yarn, and get ready to crochet something fabulous!
