Modern crocheters are constantly on the lookout for new techniques and fresh designs that will take their artistry to the next level. This is evidenced by the popularity of Tunisian, hairpin, Bruges and Knook crochet (which is essentially knitting with crochet hooks). The techniques and designs in Celtic Crochet don't require special equipment, but take the basic crochet stitches to a higher level while incorporating perennially popular (and typically knitted) Celtic motifs. Celtic Crochet will open up a whole world of possibilities for newer crocheters, and provide a much needed challenge to seasoned ones.
