The Learn to Crochet Project – The Crochet Project

This is the book for beginners that the ladies from the Crochet Project always wanted to write:

“It’s the one we wish we could have learnt from. Between the two of us we’ve taught hundreds of people to crochet in classes up and down the UK (and abroad). The more you teach beginners the more you see the different areas that people struggle with and which simple tips can be shared to overcome them. We wanted this book to give you the same feeling of being in class, to give you the same level of information imparted in a friendly way, to distill all the teaching experience we’ve gained. It is spiral bound so it lays nice and flat while you work and makes it easy to flip back and forth between the various bits of information you might need. We want this book to give you the best start possible.

As makers and designers we have always been more interested in things to wear than things for the home. And it is fair to say that we get very frustrated with some of the useless items that beginners get given to make (mug cosies we are looking at you!) That’s why in this book we have focused on wearable items. There is something very wonderful about being able to make something to wear right from the beginning.”

The book is written as though it is a course so it is best to start at the beginning and work your way through the text and the projects in order. It contains 4 projects over 80 pages:

– The Burwell Cowl is the first project in the book and is designed to help you practice your basic stitches.
– The Wicken Mitts are an introduction to working into row ends, following a pattern and making something to fit.
– The Bottisham Hat introduces you to working in the round, making a traditional motif, working seamlessly and decreasing.
– The Quy Shawl introduces you to reading charts, working lace patterns, picots, understanding special stitches, increasing in pattern.

The book is written in UK standard crochet terminology and has a full discussion of the differences between the UK and US standards and makes references to the US terms throughout.

Parts of the book will be excerpted in a free online tutorial series in association with lovecrochet.com in January 2018 and will be supported with a facebook group at that time.

The Crochet Project is run by Joanne Scrace and Kat Goldin, both designers with a passion for beautiful and wearable designs.

Kat is an award winning blogger with a flair for presentation. She is the author of Crochet at Play and Hook Stitch and Give (published by Kyle Books.) Her work has been featured in The Guardian, Etsy’s Look Books, Ideal Homes, Simply Crochet, Inside Crochet, Mollie Makes, and Juno magazine. Kat is behind the gorgeous aesthetic of The Crochet Project , in charge of all the photography, branding and layout.  Kat lives passionately by the motto that life is too short to match socks and will often be stepping over piles of laundry or leaning over a tower of dirty dishes to get the perfect shot. Her 3 children don’t recognise her without a Canon in front of her face and balls of yarn in her pockets.

Joanne Scrace (aka Not So Granny) specialises in seamless knitting and crochet, often vintage inspired but always with a fresh modern feel. Her work has been featured in Inside Crochet, Knit Now, The Knitter, Simply Crochet and Love Crochet. Joanne keeps an eye on the technical aspects of The Crochet Project, ensuring quality and consistency in the patterns. She blogs about the crochet design business and the perils of mixing small children and knitting needles at notsogranny.com
