Linked stitches eliminate the gaps often left between crochet stitches, allowing you to create truly solid projects in half-double, double, treble crochet or taller stitches. It's always good to learn new techniques and expand your repertoire. Designer Brandi Isham teaches you all of the ins and outs of crocheting linked stitches. Each stitch is clearly illustrated using left and right-handed photos to ensure your success. Working in rows and rounds are also demonstrated. Designs include home decor items such as cushions and a sampler afghan as well as fashion accessories such as a scarf, cowl and beanie. There is even a fun playmat for babies and toddlers.
Brandi Isham was first taught to crochet by her aunt when she was a little girl. After graduating high school she gained a huge interest when she discovered crochet magazines and she began designing. She is a member of the Crochet Guild of America and has been recognised as an Associate Crochet Professional. She is a stay-at-home mum and has yarn stashed in every corner of the house.
