The crochet answer book
Eckman, Edie.
Adult Nonfiction TT820 .E35 2005

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Library Journal:

Written by well-known teachers in their fields and formatted as a series of questions that might be asked by crocheters or knitters, these manuals cover materials, techniques, and resources for each craft. They include not only valuable information for the beginner but also answers to questions that even experienced crocheters or knitters may never have seen addressed in print. For example, many books cover the casting-on process in knitting, but Radcliffe answers such specific queries as "What is the best cast-on when you're planning to add fringe to a piece?" and "Is there a more durable cast-on I can use for children's clothes?" In the crochet manual, Eckman includes exceptionally clear explanations for how to count stitches and rows from either side of a crocheted piece. Both books have excellent resource sections that include bibliographies, glossaries, and lists of abbreviations used in pattern books; at these prices, they are ideal for public libraries.
