Availability: Out of stock

Crochet works exceptionally well as edging or trim, and this book explores that match-up, with patterns for chic knit cardigans edged with lacy crochet. It examines the creative possibilities of crocheted insets and motifs - granny squares in dog sweaters, and flowers on a felted purse and fingerless gloves with beaded crochet wrist trim.

Knit and crochet designer, Candi Jensen has a mission - to show today's trendy, young knitters just how much fun a little crochet can be. Crocheting can mimic lace. It can give a knit sweater pretty edging unachievable with knitting needles. Crocheted flowers and bobbles lend texture and interest to a flat surface. To get her message out, Jensen has written "Knitting Loves Crochet", brimming with designs to make believers out of the knitting - only crowd who still associate crocheting with doilies and dowdy tissue box covers. Crochet works exceptionally well as edging or trim, and Jensen explores that match-up to its fullest, with patterns for chic knit cardigans edged with lacy crochet; a stunning, fitted tank finished with a paler shade of crochet on the top and bottom; and placemats, napkin rings, and washcloths trimmed with delicate crocheted colour. Jensen goes on to explore the creative possibilities of crocheted insets and motifs - granny squares in dog sweaters, flowers on a felted purse and fingerless gloves with beaded crochet wrist trim. The possibilities are endless when it comes to mixing these two versatile crafts. Knitting meets crochet - it's the exciting next step for the knitting enthusiast.
