Anyone who’s ever tried to master a new stitch or work out which granny squares should go where on a blanket will appreciate how crochet can totally engage your attention and harness your creativity.  Being “in the moment” is an essential part of following a pattern, keeping your yarn on the hook, counting stitches and remembering which colour to use next. Emma Leith shows how these qualities can become a form of mindfulness practice, bringing you peace, calm and a greater sense of well-being.  There are projects you can make for yourself or your home, and others designed to be given as gifts. The satisfaction you’ll get from creating these lovely makes and seeing others appreciate them is another important way in which crochet can encourage a positive outlook and bring happiness.  Product Information: ISBN: 9781782496939 Author: Emma Leith Publisher: Cico Books Format: Paperback Pages: 128 Dimensions: 28 x 21 x 1cm

Crochet Know-How has step-by-step instructions accompanied by clear colour artworks, showing you how to do everything from basic double and treble crochet, to increasing and decreasing, working in the round and in spirals, and changing colour. If you want to know how to get started, everything from making a slip stitch and working out your tension to blocking your finished make is covered.
