Overview

Bored of blankets and scarves? If you're ready to tackle more complex patterns, Linda's darling baby sweater is the perfect first crocheted garment. You'll learn professional secrets to create smooth edges, link stitches, shape your pieces, sew them together and add edging. In the process, she takes away the intimidation factor of working from patterns and schematics. In-depth tutorials on blocking and finishing are sure to be invaluable for every level of crocheter, and you'll even learn a fun surface embellishment technique that you can use to make monograms, flowers, or any shape you can draw on the surface of your sweater. Move beyond rectangles and gain the confidence you need to crochet your next garment!
