Description

Dare to Wear Crochet in More Ways Than One
Convertible Crochet is a brand new way to think about crochet fashion, exploded lace motifs, and flattering silhouettes. Award-winning designer Doris Chan helps you get more out of crochet with these endlessly adaptable patterns and techniques that can work with a variety of different looks, personal styles, and body shapes. You'll learn to personalize these designs by easily making alterations, adding removable elements, or simply styling the piece in an ingenious new way. Make it once. Wear it again and again.

Publishers Weekly Review

May 20, 2013 – The author and her publisher follow up the lovely book Crochet Lace Innovations with another collec-tion of 22 stunning lace patterns. Chan works in a module style, explaining how to make one motif and then expand it into stylish wraps, dresses, and scarves. Chan's use of lace makes her designs both clas-sic and hip, avoiding the bulky heaviness that regular crochet can have. In her Angular Momentum chapter, for example, one rectangular module can be expanded into the Austen-esque Corsair Collar, the hip Fairlane Jacket, or the breathtaking, convertible stole/wrap T-Bird. While instructions are clear, and patterns are written with the utmost clarity, these patterns are not for the faint of heart or the be-ginning crocheter. It says a great deal that Chan does not provide basic crocheting instructions in the book; the stitcher who attempts these will need to be well beyond learning what a double chain is. For those with the skills, though, what a treat this lovely book will be. Full-color photos.
