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.
