Tapestry Crochet Summary

Tapestry Crochet: 64 Playful Patterns for Children by Renate Kirkpatrick

The aim of this book is to introduce readers to another crochet technique and to present a kaleidoscope of designs based on graphs to encourage experienced and beginner crocheters alike to try something new, expand their repertoire, and enjoy themselves. The 64 patterns will inspire crochet workers to accomplish a functional and beautiful rug that will particularly appeal to children - a bespoke heirloom that can be proudly passed down the generations.
Based on graphs like those used in cross-stitch embroidery, the designs are very easy to follow. The layout that Renate has used to assemble the rug can be adapted and varied as you please to suit the person/child for whom the rug is intended and the room in which it will be used. You could work a number of colour variations of just a few designs, concentrate on toys or fruit, alternate the tapestry squares with squares of plain colour, make a smaller rug of 36 squares - even put together four squares to make the face of a cushion cover.

About Renate Kirkpatrick

Born in Germany in 1951, Renata Kirkpatrick grew up in windy Wollongong and in 1974 settled on the Sunshine Coast with her husband Glenn where they operate a small commercial Signwriting and Screenprinting business. Renate can't remember a time when she wasn't exploring the fibre arts. She has experimented with pottery, exhibited and conducted workshops in papermaking, and has won a Fibre Art Award in rag rugging. From 2002, as crochet made its huge resurgence, Renate's extensive knowledge in Traditional Tunisian (Tricot), Jacquard, Crochenit (double-ended hook) and more recently Freeform techniques has led to her conducting monthly workshops and weekly classes.
