    "Tunisian crochet has been used to make garments since its invention in the 19th century. From the popular children's garments of the 1800's to the new shapes it's taking in our time, Tunisian crochet follows a rich tradition. This book will open doors for those intrigued with Tunisian crochet--both by updating older concepts with contemporary styles and yarns, and inventing new ones for today's crocheter and her family. Tunisian crochet makes a fabric quite unlike either crochet or knitting; it is moreelastic, lighter in weight, and drapes differently. It can also be stretchy, springy and firm. These qualities can be used to create garments from delicate lacy shawls, to snug hats and mitts, to jackets and skirts. To better explore the possibilities of this technique, the book provides 20+ Tunisian stitch patterns showing a variety of possible fabrics one can create. Then 12 projects show many of these stitches at work in a variety of garments, accessories, and home projects. Several designers contribute patterns, better illustrating the wide range of interpretations Tunisian crochet is undergoing today"--
