Are you at a place in your crochet life that you want to learn new techniques and be a bit challenged by the patterns? Are you ready to amaze yourself with how you can create crocheted originals that are wonderful to wear? Then you owe it to yourself to check out this new book by Tammy Hildebrand, one of our favorite designers. It is filled with shawls, ponchos even ruanas.
This book’s 18 wraps are presented in 6 chapters, each including an easy, intermediate and experienced project for these techniques:
1. Traditional Crochet
3. Hairpin Lace
4. Broomstick Lace
5. Tunisian Crochet
6. Double-Ended Crochet
I love the fully photographed how-to section for each of the techniques in the back of the book. I’m sure it will come in handy for refreshing my memory for those that I haven’t done in a while. And I was thrilled to see these designs using Red Heart yarns:
Chianti shrug made using the hairpin lace technique features Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable.
Water Lily shawl made using Tunisian Crochet technique features Red Heart Boutique Treasure in Watercolors.
If you don’t see Crochet Wraps Every Which Way in your yarn department, here is link to the publisher’s site where you can view a look book of all 18 designs and purchase it. I’m thinking the ebook at the lower price would be great, so I can have the techniques readily available on my iPad.
