Emerging from history and gaining speed, crocheting is everywhere, from the everyday crafter to the runway. This book provides the knowledge to go past traditional granny squares to sophisticated techniques, elevating crocheters to the possibility of fascinating with inventive new ways to crochet.

Inspired to write this book by the information gaps on particular aspects, Dora Ohrenstein addresses problem topics such as tension control, shaping with complex stitch patterns, choosing yarn, and advanced skills. Patterns for seventy-seven swatches are included to effectively learn a particular technique, along with five everyday projects using skill sets from the previous patterns.

An all-in-one resource guide, The Crocheter’s Skill-Building Workshop encourages readers to experiment and try new techniques while giving them confidence to tackle any project. I was pleasantly surprised with exquisite attention to detail, not only with the informative guidelines but in the detailed photos throughout, showing each step. Beautifully put together, with literally everything you need in one book, including a glossary of basic terms and an informative key stitch guide, this book is invaluable for anyone who loves the craft.
