Colorful Crochet Knitwear
Crochet expert Sandra Gutierrez explains how to use tapestry crochet and its variations to create Fair Isle crochet patterns on garments and accessories. Other colorwork techniques included are standard mosaic crochet, worked flat and in the round; single row mosaic crochet worked in the round to create texture; intarsia crochet which lends itself to more graphic images; and how to use stripes and color blocking as an accent on a shawl and sweater.
There are step-by-step instructions and photography explaining all the different crochet colorwork techniques with detailed instructions about how to change color, carrying floats and the importance of swatching and gauge. There are also general techniques about how to choose colors, how different yarns create different effects and how to substitute yarn.
The collection also includes a number of garment construction techniques so you can build your crochet clothing skills as well as learning the colorwork techniques.
