Following a Crochet Along style project is an incredibly popular way for home crafters to create projects in bite-size pieces and this stunning design from Jane Crowfoot not only offers crochet fans the chance to work through one of her famous and ground-breaking designs, but it will also help build skills and techniques while creating a truly beautiful heirloom crochet piece using luxurious yarns.
Inspired by English Artists, Country Gardens and London's Garden Squares and written in Jane's distinctive style, with step-by-step images and explanations along the way, this design includes crochet flower motifs, butterflies, circles and striped stitch formations and Jane has included an array of techniques, including beading, textural layered pieces and bobbles.
The book includes the story behind the inspiration for the project, many tips and techniques and links to helpful YouTube videos and technical downloads which offer online guidance through the techniques used in this project. This project is aimed at those with a good knowledge of crochet stitches and abbreviations and is written using UK terminology.
The pattern is written for yarns from the Rowan range. If you want to use alternative yarns there is information at the front of the book on how to calculate alternative yarn amounts. The finished blanket measures approximately 124 cm (49in) square pre-blocked, and 127cm (50in) square blocked.
