A book packed full of useful techniques & tips,
as well as fantastic patterns!

You will be amazed by how many techniques you
learn in this one book;
Stripe Technique
Mosaic Technique
Intarsia Technique
Woven Fair Isle Technique
& Combining Techniques


You get clear step by step instructions
so that you can easily learn each technique.
You are then given a pattern to practice each
of the techniques you are learning.


And don't worry if you get stuck,
Leisure Arts also supplies bonus
online tutorials.

The patterns are super clear and there
are loads so you can see where you should
be placing your hook and
what you should be doing with the colours.

Each of the techniques is full of hints
and tips to make it easier for you.
There are tips how to hide your yarn floats
and other useful tips.

Most of the patterns are in written format
but there are some charts for some of the patterns.

Most of the techniques are for intermediate
crocheters but with all the help and
support I am sure that someone of less
ability would be able to give it a go.

There is even a sampler afghan
that uses the techniques and looks amazing.

This book is fantastic value for money
and I am sure you will learn something new.
I know I am learning lots for this book.
