The New Encyclopedia of Crochet Techniques

Book- The New Encyclopedia of Crochet Techniques

Jan Eaton's excellent book, The New Encyclopedia of Crochet Techniques, will be a useful and welcome addition to anyone's crochet book library. You will discover new twists on the basics, and learn how to create complex-looking stitches, openwork and lace, multi-colored patterns, shaped motifs, Afghan squares, and much more. It is altogether a very informative book written by one the craft of crochets' best known designers and writers in the field.

What a Few People Have said About The New Encyclopedia of Crochet Techniques

"The New Encyclopedia of Crochet Techniques has always been an excellent book and as a teacher of crochet, I use this as the recommended book for my students. I just wanted to clear up that this is indeed the English version. To be clear (and I know because I own the original edition, the poorly advertised American edition and now this new edition) if unsure, just check the colour of the cover. The edition released before Christmas has a black background and is the American version. The edition released in March 2013 with the pale blue background to the cover is the English version. Hope this helps."

"This book is an excellent resource. Packed full of tuition, right from basic to more complex techniques, all clearly explained with lots of photos. I love all the illustrated samples showing how different stitches work up (next to instructions on how to make these stitches) As a result I've mastered some stitches I had been struggling with. There's lots of ideas and a few projects too. Well worth the money."

"I've seen (and bought) other books that purport to be comprehensive guides to crochet and they've always fallen short. The other big problem is that most books use American terms which can be confusing. This book (with the Blue cover) is in English (not American) and has clear written instructions, diagrams and pictures, so even a complete novice can see how to do the stitches and what the finished pattern should look like. The few projects in the book are a little uninspiring and 1960ish but don't let that put you off. I've just completed a Biker Jacket in Double Crochet stitch, working in the front loop only. Simple but effective. This book allows you to learn a stitch and make up your own patterns at the same time. I quite fancy making an 'angled cluster' waistcoat next. What will you try?"
