Illustrates and describes basic crocheting techniques and provides instructions for five simple projects.
Children are always interested in animals and birds, and your little one will be delighted with a "zoo" bedspread. Designed by Mrs. A.J. Lavender in 1918, these simple blocks will fuel your creativity. There are 16 animal squares: song bird, kittens, wolf, fox and chick, donkey, pig, ostrich, rooster, deer, dog, llama, camel, squirrel, horse, goat, rabbit, plus a checkered square to separate the animals. The matching scalloped border (with corner) includes a flying goose, snake, horse, squirrel, lion, mouse, duck, chicken, cat, owl, and rabbit. With several options for variations, you can use this pattern for a simple project, or make a more ambitious crochet thread bedspread with matching curtains and linens. This is not your usual scanned vintage crochet pattern. To make this pattern great for today's crocheter I wrote complete instructions, expanded the written instructions so you won't need to skip around, and made an easy to follow chart. I also changed the written instructions to use modern US crochet terms. The only stitches you need to know to complete this lace are: chain stitch, single crochet, double crochet, and slip stitch.
Have you always admired the crochet work of others. Loved the idea of making some lace doilies or other delicate pretty things to decorate your home. Well stop putting it off. Crocheting is easy and fun. This is a great little book that has everything you need to know to get started with crocheting. We take you through it step by step. From what you need to buy to completing your first project. You will be surprised just how much you enjoy it, you will wonder why you did not learn sooner. You'll not want to put it down once you get going, just think of the gifts you can make your family and friends.
