Crochet is a fantastic craft, it's quick, easy and extremely portable. You can easily stash your project in your bag and have it at hand for when those crafty moments strike, so no matter where you are, get your hook out and go. We've all got bits and bobs of yarn left over from other projects, so put them to good use and dip into the selection of mini crochet projects designed to let you see results fast. A perfect solution for those last minute gift solutions or if you simply fancy making a little something for yourself. The patterns in the book cover all skills and techniques. Full how-to instructions are given for the techniques needed to get you started, how to hold the hook and work basic stitches, working in rows and on the round, increasing and decreasing your stitches, also how to change colour, add texture and work open lace designs. We have included crochet diagrams, where required, to help you understand what's going on and develop your skills. So whether you are a complete beginner or experienced in the craft of crochet, there is plenty to keep your interest and hopefully something for everyone.
