Blueprint Crochet introduced American readers to the crochet stitch diagrams that are used by crocheters throughout the world, demonstrated on beautiful and contemporary designs for women. Baby Blueprint Crochet offers the opportunity to practice these new skills and techniques on smaller, less daunting projects. Baby and child garments are among the most popular projects made by crocheters, making this combination a perfect pairing.
Although written-out directions have been more common to American readers, diagrams are the standard in international crochet patterns. Once readers understand the symbols, the diagrams are often easier to follow than written directions, and the diagrams save space on the page. Crocheters who are comfortable with stitch diagrams have a whole world of designs to choose from, and Japanese and European crochet designs become immediately accessible. Both Interweave Crochet and Crochet Today are including more crochet pattern graphics in response to trends in the crochet market. To familiarize readers with the new format, the patterns present the instructions in both crochet symbols and traditional abbreviations (like Blueprint Crochet).
Robyn brings the contemporary aesthetic that has made her a favorite designer to the modern baby garments and accessories featured in Baby Blueprint Crochet. The patterns 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 bright, fun, fashionable, useful, and launder easily. The 25 projects include 6 girls' garments, 6 boys' garments, 6 accessories like hats, slippers, diaper covers, and 7 home items including blankets, toys. The projects range from beginner to experienced. With contemporary designs from trendy to classic, each project offers a fresh take on crochet.
