This is long overdue for crocheters. For knitters, I find this type of book published several times a year but, this is the first I have seen for crocheters. Margaret Hubert is the author of “Customize Your Crochet” and knows her way around a hook, as well as needles. She has written more than 20 books and is an established pattern designer.
This book will give your projects (sweaters, tops) a professional finish. Margaret shows you how to add or change design details to suit your style, adjust a pattern to fit your unique measurements and embellish to taste. She will walk you through understanding body types and how to flatter your shape.
There are four different cardigan patterns used to show how to customize fit through shaping. Then, it is on to ‘Finish like a Pro’. Five different seams finishes are shown and did you know the order in which you seam is important! Sometimes when you finish a project, you are not happy with the outcome. Upon completion of your sweater, see how to fix a garment that isn’t quite what it should be.
Wait, wait, there is more. A collection of edging variations, how-to buttonholes , buttons, pockets and zipper closures are included. The photographs are clear, large and detailed. There are line drawings and graphs where needed.
If you love to crochet tops and sweaters and not loving how they fit when completed…this “Customize your Crochet” is for you. Margaret will help you “end your sweater crocheting frustrations forever.”
