A complete guide to the stitches, techniques and finishing touches that every crocheter needs to know.
Whether you are just learning to crochet, or you are seldom separated from your hook and yarn, there will always be times when you need instruction – or just a reminder – on a particular technique or stitch, and even the most experienced crocheter may not know all the tips and wrinkles included here. Crochet Know-How has step-by-step instructions accompanied by clear colour artworks, showing you how to do everything from basic double and treble crochet, to increasing and decreasing, working in the round and in spirals, and changing colour. If you want to know how to get started, everything from making a slip stitch and working out your tension to blocking your finished make is covered. For more experienced makers, useful tips on making raised stitches, creating bobbles and clusters, and creating ribbing in crochet will all help you achieve a perfect finish to your makes.
