This week, I’m headed off to Stitches South and teaching a packed schedule of classes!
One of the classes I’m teaching is Designing Crochet Afghans. Since I’ve designed a few afghans in my day, I’m excited to teach other folks the tools they need to design their own!
One of the books I’ll be recommending to my students is Crochet Stitches VISUAL Encyclopedia by Robyn Chachula.
It’s a great resource for crochet stitch patterns! I’m terrible at coming up with new stitch patterns… but with a book like this, you can be terrible and still come up with new afghan designs. Isn’t that great news? (If you’re interested in more info, click over to my review of the book)
Check out this pretty little swatch I made from one of the stitch patterns in the book:
Can’t you picture this as a full-sized afghan? Or this would be a square in an afghan with various squares?
The possibilities are endless!
So, check out this book… and maybe I’ll see you at Stitches South! I’ll report back with photos for those of you who can’t make it!
