Words by Joanne and Kat...

Between the two of us we’ve taught hundreds of people to crochet in classes up and down the UK (and abroad). The more you teach beginners the more you see the different areas that people struggle with and which simple tips can be shared to overcome them. We wanted this book to give you the same feeling of being in class, to give you the same level of information imparted in a friendly way, to distil all the teaching experience we’ve gained.

As makers and designers we have always been more interested in things to wear than things for the home. And it is fair to say that we get very frustrated with some of the useless items that beginners get given to make (mug cosies we are looking at you!) That’s why in this book we have focussed on wearable items. There is something very wonderful about being able to make something to wear right from the beginning. There’s no better feeling than being able to respond to a comment about your clothing by saying “Thanks, I made it!”

The Burwell Cowl is the first project in the book and is designed to help you practice your basic stitches.

The Wicken Mitts are an introduction to working into row ends, following a pattern and making something to fit.

The Bottisham Hat introduces you to working in the round, making a traditional motif, working seamlessly and decreasing.

The Quy Shawl introduces you to reading charts, working lace patterns, picots, understanding special stitches, increasing in pattern.
