Robyn Chachula's first book, Blueprint Crochet, introduced American readers to crochet stitch diagrams used by crocheters throughout the world, demonstrated on contemporary designs for women. Although written-out directions are more common to American readers, diagrams are the standard in international crochet patterns. Once crocheters understand the symbols, the diagrams are often easier to follow than written directions. Now with Baby Blueprint Crochet, Robyn offers the opportunity to practice these new skills and techniques on smaller, less daunting projects.
The modern baby garment and accessory patterns in Baby Blueprint Crochet are designed to appeal to moms and kids as well as crocheters: no frilly stuff, no scratchy yarns that make the baby red, and no heirloom afghans to keep out of baby's hands. Instead, the projects are contemporary and bright, fun, fashionable, useful, and launder easily. The nineteen projects include girls' garments, such as a jumper and tunic; boys' garments, including a jacket and a vests; accessories from hats to slippers and even diaper covers; and home items including blankets and toys.
