Quick Crocheted Accessories (3 Skeins or Less)
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Crochet accessories are as easy as 1, 2, or 3 skeins of yarn!
In Quick Crocheted Accessories, author Sharon Zientara has curated a collection of crocheted projects that make use of one, two, or three skeins of yarn, allowing for both color play and larger projects. Crocheters will enjoy quick crochet projects including scarves and shawls, hats, fingerless mitts and mittens, and slippers and socks!
They'll discover single-skein projects that are simple and quick to crochet, budget-friendly, or offer a beautiful way to use a special skein of luxury yarn as well as crochet projects that take two or three skeins offering larger or more complex stitch patterns and colorwork.
Featured designers include Kathy Merrick, Brenda K. B. Anderson, Beth Nielsen, Cristina Mershon, Terri Keller, Jessica Bolof, and Linda Skuja. Their designs include stitch patterns and motifs that are textural, reversible, and fresh.
