Cozy Crochet

Designed for all skill levels, this collection features twenty-six stylish, step-by-step crochet projects you can wear or use to decorate your home.

Knitting is all the rage, but did you know crocheters outnumber knitters three to one? Cozy Crochet does for the hook what Knitting Pretty did for needles, with twenty-six step-by-step projects that will appeal to the sophisticated tastes of the new generation of crocheters. Ranging from simple projects for new converts to more advanced patterns for seasoned crafters, the creations in Cozy Crochet are fresh and contemporary: stylish striped throw pillows, an embellished clutch purse, a delicate wrap for a night on the town. A comprehensive learn-to-crochet section teaches the basics in plain language with sixty-five helpful diagrams, and each project is accompanied by a beautiful full-color photograph. Appealing, accessible, and utterly original, the designs in Cozy Crochet will have readers hooked.</
