One of the reasons that people love Tunisian crochet is because you can get a knit-like look using the basics of crochet. There may be no pattern more “knit” than Fair Isle so many people will take an interest in Brenda Bourg’s new crochet book Fair Isle Tunisian Crochet: Step-by-Step Instructions and 16 Colorful Cowls, Sweaters, and More.
I always love the books that Margaret Hubert authors, and she’s especially talented at her work with crochet granny squares (and variations thereof), so it’s no surprise that I’m loving her recent titles which showcase crochet granny blocks in all of their glory. For example, I loved her book 10 Granny Squares, 30 Blankets. And now I’m also loving 10 Granny Squares, 30 Bags.
