"A keen crocheter, Emma Friedlander-Collins decided to explore the possibilities of using an extra-large hook - starting with one her husband had made for her from the end of a wooden broomstick. She discovered that crocheting with her giant hook, combined with using super-chunky yarns, produced quick results and new textures. Here she shares 35 stylish patterns with you, all to make using a supersize hook. You can make your own hook for these projects, and Emma shows you how, but you can also buy them, and details of suppliers are provided at the back of the book. Chapter 1, Clothes and Accessories, has a whole host of things you will love to make and wear, including scarves, a hat, jewellery and slippers. Stay snug in the winter with the 'super snood' sleeveless body warmer, which is ideal for wearing underneath a coat, or keep off the breeze on summer evenings with the simple shrug. Plus, add a little crochet to your bicycle - make a matching seat cover and handlebar warmers, and a bike basket decorated with crochet flowers. Meanwhile, chapter 2, Homeware, offers ideas that are great for your own home or to give as gifts. Learn how to create cushions, rugs and throws, as well as a basket and bath mat set, and a handy house bowl. The sleeping roll works as a sofa throw but can be taken camping, too, encompassing a mat and pillow in one. There's even a beautiful Christmas wreath for the holiday season. With so much inspiration, plus a comprehensive techniques section and helpful hints and tips, you'll soon be hooked on making these gorgeous designs"--Publisher's description.
