Sarah-Jayne Fragola is the creator of Bella Coco Crochet, which she started in 2011. She specializes in teaching people to crochet, using simple and structured methods so that anyone can learn how to start! If you are looking for a comprehensive, beginner's guide to crochet, this is the book for you.
Starting with a section on hook types, your essential crochet kit and the yarns you'll need, you are guided by Sarah-Jayne through the key crochet stitches you'll need before you get stuck in. Each stitch described using UK terms is accompanied by clear step-by-step instructions and photographs, and handy quick-stitch boxes that include key stitch details as well as the US equivalents.
Once you've conquered your stitches, get stuck into your first projects, starting from the easiest designs to the more complex ones to crochet. These 12 projects range from sweet and simple coasters and scarves, to a stunning hexie pillow and hat 'n' mitten set. With each new project, learn a new technique to gradually build your knowledge and familiarity with crocheting.
To reward your efforts, Sarah-Jayne then treats you to a section on advanced stitches that you can use to crochet her 'Showstopper Blanket' a beautiful, textured blanket that you'd be proud to drape on your bed or sofa.
These gorgeous patterns will inspire crochet novices and more confident crocheters alike.
