The Crochet Project - Everyday Wearables
Whatever your motivation for wanting to create a handmade wardrobe, crochet can readily be used to build a wardrobe full of wearable staples. Often crochet has been viewed as “best for homewares and novelties” and struggled to lose the reputation created in the 1970s of ill-fitting granny square jackets. With an in-depth understanding of how crochet fabric is created, the need for drape and taking fit and construction lessons from both knitwear and dressmaking, Joanne has created pieces that fit well and look great.
Everyday Wearables is 84 pages of eight beautiful patterns and lots of advice and photo tutorials to help you get perfect fitting garments and accessories every time. We’ve passed on our expertise on everything from measuring correctly to getting a professional finish and added step by step instructions for some of the trickier aspects of the patterns to make the designs accessible to those wanting to build their skills.
