Tapestry_coverFrontXtapestry_rug Tapestry Crochet, 64 playful patterns for children

ISBN978-186351-462-0 ~ ARRP: $29.99 AUD ~ 89 pages

This book is another crochet sampler & my aim is to introduce readers to yet another crochet technique & encourage avid experienced crocheters & beginners alike to try something new, expand their repertoire &enjoy themselves with some colourful, fun designs.

Utilising all 64 patterns will result in a rug (afghan) approx 152cm x 152cm (60” x 60”) in size but there is no reason why you can’t choose a selection of favourites (say 30 to 36 squares) for a smaller knee rug (afghan) or, by putting together just 4 squares you’ll have a colourful cushion face.

The patterns are divided into 8 sections:

(1) Figures & letters ~

No 1No 3letter c

(2) Signs & symbols ~


(3) Children & toys ~

Birthday cakesneakerteddy

(4) Transport


(5) Fruit & veg ~


(6) Around the house ~


(7) This & that ~


(8) Birds & animals


so you can please yourself which designs suit your project… be it for a boy or girl, baby, young child or teenager… or even work just a few patterned square alternated with plain coloured squares…

In Tapestry Crochet (as in Intarsia/Jacquard) a chart, graph or grid is used instead of written instructions for coloured patterns. Each square equals a stitch, each line equals a row and each blank square equals the main colour. Follow grids from the bottom and read right-side rows from right to left and wrong-side rows from left to right. All squares are worked in double crochet [dc] (US: single crochet [sc]). And, for reader convenience, I have written the required number of stitches for each colour, with arrows indicating row direction.
