Wouldn't it boost your confidence to have an experienced and confident crocheter on call, day and night, offering assistance when needed? Most of us aren't fortunate enough to have that kind of aid, but now there is help available 24/7 with The Crochet Answer Book. Being a "good" crocheter is not about making perfectly stitched, elaborate, artful creations. It is rather a matter of confidence. You need to be confident in what you are doing and in how to figure out what to do if things aren't going quite right. Understanding why you do certain things and why they turn out the way they do increases confidence and leads to successful crocheting. This book answers some of the most common questions crocheters have, and anticipates some questions you didn't know you had. The Crochet Answer Book will lead you down the road to gaining the confidence that makes for good crocheting.

The 48 motifs in this book are squares or hexagons that can be tiled together to make a fabric. Also included are half motifs, which keep the integrity of the design but are only pieces of the motif. These are used to neatly fill in spaces and add shape, and they give more flexibility when building a project. Motifs in themselves can be complete projects, such as coasters or washcloths. Or multiple motifs can be added together to make something larger, including a scarf or a placemat. By stitching even more motifs together, you can even create a wrap or an afghan. The designs that can be made using motifs are limitless. As an extra bonus, the book contains symbol crochet for each motif and design. The four designs are a scarf, a hat, a cowl, and a blanket. All motifs and projects can be made using Plymouth Encore worsted-weight yarn.
