Don’t know what to buy for Xmas?
Here is a list of a few books you should have to complete a decent bookshelf…
No doubt, crochet is in!

By Robyn Chachula,
you know her work through “Sensual Crochet", Crochet Today!
or her weblog “Crochet by Faye”
Blue Print Crochet

This is a step ahead in crochet instructions as they were known a few years ago, as the athor focuses on graphs
(hence the title)
Robyn’s elegant and sharp style will certainly seduce you (I am already ).

by Kristin Omdahl,
You’ve seen her name in the contributor’s list of “Vogue Knitting on the Go: Crocheted Shawls”
or you’ve visited her page, Styled By Kristin
Wrapped in Crochet

This is going to be a big thing!
The designer is extremely creative and imaginative ! You don’t believe me? Well then, check her Flickr page !
By the way, don’t miss this free pattern she designed for Caron, Belize wrap. =>=>

By Mary Jane Hall,
You may already know her book, “Positively crochet", and her website Mj crochet
Crochet That Fits

Shaped Fashions Without Increases or Decreases

The picture and the title are self explanatory and very elloquent I think!…
I find it amusing that Mary Jane would issue this book while I’ve been working myself on the same principles, working crochet clothes vertically to ensure “curve-friendly” fit… Crochet is a small world indeed ! As if the idea was floating in the air and waiting to rain down on us…

Vivement Noël :snowman:

Thanks so much for your comments about my books Crochet That Fits and Positively Crochet! :) I am considering doing another book in the future with my Graduated Stitch Method of making fitted and flattering garments without increases or decreases (Crochet That Fits) and maybe opening it up to other designers, in case they come up with their own ideas. It would sure help the book process to go much smoother and with less stress! So keep that in mind :)

  • Crocheted!

  • Is it knitted? Nope! Crocheted! Crochet isn't just for grannies, doilies and floppy funky scarves. I am - fairly - under 50, I have a crochet hook and a yarn ball handy in my purse and I like decorating my shoulders better than my sofa.
