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 “tricotar” 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, e muito mais.
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. Por exemplo, I loved her book 10 Granny Squares, 30 Cobertores. And now I’m also loving 10 Granny Squares, 30 Sacos.
Today we have a contribution to the Mandalas for Marinke project from Kayt Ross, a Fibre Artist and Crochet Instructor from Vivacious Art, where she shares that she learned the basics of crochet from her grandmother. She also shares her beautiful thread crochet paintings, which you should spend some time browsing for inspiration!
