Synopsis

Synopsis

Does last season’s skirt need a little more flash? Want to breathe new life into your favorite tee? If you love crochet and quick, gratifying projects, Linda Permann will show you how to turn your old duds into a new wardrobe with yarn, a hook, and inspired ideas! By adding trims, embellishments and lace–or even changing the design of a garment–with simple crochet stitches, you can give your clothes a whole new look. These fun-to-make projects are a great second chance for clothes from your closet or thrifty finds–and they’ll even look great with the gems already in your yarn stash. When someone asks, "Did you make that?" you will love to answer "Yes!"

Plus, Linda shares new ideas for accessories and home decorating with projects that include earrings, aprons, and pillows. She’ll guide you through color theory (to keep your clothes and yarn in harmony), help you develop an eagle eye for embellishable clothes (so that you can reap all the benefits of thrifty finds), and share all the details you need to know to customize each project to your own size and style. With helpful how-to instructions and illustrations, 20 inspired projects, and a stitch dictionary of extra trims, motifs, and patterns, you’ll have all the tools you need to embellish anything and everything–just the way you like it.

"This delightful book is a must-have for the crafty lady who wants to spruce up her life with a little crochet flair. Linda Permann’s designs are approachable, fashion-forward, and totally cute!"
—Brett Bara, Editor-in-Chief, Crochet Today

"The lacelike and sculptural qualities of crochet are beautifully highlighted in Linda Permann’s clever book. Appearing in the form of subtle rick-rack on a plain T-shirt, a cute scalloped edging on a coat, a butterfly on an apron, or colorful flowers on a simple cardigan, crochet is here applied like icing on a cake, improving everything it touches. Permann’s book is an inspiration for beginning and advanced crocheters alike"
—Debbie Stoller, author of the Stitch ’n Bitch series of knitting and crochet books

"With outstanding style and creativity, Linda Permann takes crochet embellishment to a fashionable, creative high. Simple instructions, easy project adaptability, and clear stitch diagrams make this book a sure hit."
—Kim Werker, author of Crochet Me: Designs to Fuel the Crochet Revolution
