Are you a former crocheter who wants to get started again, to make gifts for a special baby in your life? Crochet Refresher, by Sharon H. Silverman, has everything you need to get re-acquainted with your long-abandoned skills. It starts with a review of basic techniques featuring left- and right-handed illustrations, plus video links to help you get back up to speed in no time; a washcloth project is perfect for practicing the stitches. Additional stitches and techniques are explained next, so you'll review everything you need to make the fun designs that follow. Parents will appreciate these blankets, baby hat and mitts, especially if you use easy-care yarn. Just think, your hand-crocheted creations could become tomorrow's heirlooms!
