Books on sweater design for knitters abound, but up to now there has been nothing on the basics of sweater/garment design for crocheters. Robyn Chachula fills that gap with an approachable introduction to the topic, giving readers a deeper understanding of crochet design, and helping them to make better-fitting garments in the process. In a collection of xx patterns, Robyn focuses on four basic garment types and their variations--sewn-together panels (including raglan, drop-sleeve, and side-saddle sleeve construction); one-piece, where garments are constructed either side-to-side or from the bottom up, around the shoulder, and back down); motif construction (where garments are created entirely from granny squares or other motifs); and top-down (both round and raglan types). In each chapter she focuses on one key garment element--sleeves, collars, shaping, or fit. Throughout the book, sidebars and tip boxes will offer additional information, including ways to give garments a polished and sophisticated look through various tricks and finishing techniques. Robyn's purpose is to show the reader the various ways that garments come together, giving her tools to better understand crochet patterns and make changes and customizations based on her style and fit preferences. The book does not purport to be an encyclopedic technical primer, but a basic introduction to the building blocks of crochet garment design. As more people have begun crocheting in recent years, they will soon be looking for books and information that go beyond collections of accessories and simple projects, and want a deeper knowledge of their craft. Robyn gives a friendly tutorial, breaking down something as intimidating as #145;garment design' into easily digestible parts, and offering her readers a deeper appreciation and understanding of crochet.
