Crochet for Curves

The name of this book pretty much sums up exactly what you will find inside.  Crochet patterns that will help show off your curves.  The techniques are very easy to learn and follow.  There are several very cute tops, scarves, hats, purses, even mittens.  All very well illustrated and the variety of sizes is a great asset to those of us who do not fit into the "normal" size range.  It is a very similar technique to the Modular Crochet by Judith Copeland.

About this book

Wiki

Say "goodbye" to crochet's stiff, boxy, hippie-child reputation, and "hello" to Crochet that Fits ... garments that fit your shape, accessories that fit your style, and looks that fit right in with today's fashion trends!

This book teaches an innovative, easy way to crochet fashions that are soft, shaped and drapeable--from a little black dress that fits like a glove and a lacy baby-doll top, to cute and cozy slippers, ruffled shrugs and hobo bags. By using Mary Jane Hall's Graduated Stitch Method, along with the correct size hook and yarn, anyone can make flattering, form-fitted items! Different stitch heights do all the shaping for you, without the hassle and confusion of figuring out increases and decreases. With this method you are essentially building garments with squares and rectangles, but the finished product doesn't look at all boxy.

  • 33 step-by-step projects feature a wide variety of patterns for adults and children
  • an illustrated stitch guide gets even beginners started quickly
  • detailed instructions make it easy to adjust the patterns to suit your shape (or others')--because one size doesn't fit all!
Easy enough for a beginner and stylish enough for the more experienced crocheter, these are projects you'll enjoy making and feel good wearing. With fits like this, you'll never think about crochet in the same way again!
