“Today, when crochet is enjoying such unprecedented vogue, it is natural that many women of all ages will wish to become accomplished in this fascinating craft. Crochet has a variety of uses and is now as popular in the field of high fashion as it is in the adornment of the home. The range of designs included illustrates this in a positive manner.
The word crochet is derived from the French ‘crochet’ meaning hook. Crochet is a traditional craft consisting of lacey patterns developed by creating stitches with thread and hook. It may seem at first glance rather intricate, but the stitches are surprisingly simple to work.
‘Learn to Crochet’ contains easy-to-follow instructions and diagrams for all the basic crochet stitches. These have been illustrated for both the right-handed and left-handed worker.
All the designs have been carefully planned to include the entire range of essential stitches and also some of the standard lace patterns.
The size of hook in relation to the selected thread is most important, so that a crochet fabric of correct tension is obtainable. An explanatory chart is included and covers all sizes.”
