Robyn Chachula's first book is now available for Pre-Order. Yes you heard us right. It is now available for pre-order!*
My book! My first full length book. Woohoo! Happy Dance!
All the beans to spill.... So hopefully you could tell from my sneak previews that I was writing a women's fashion crochet book. The big secret was HOW I was writing the book.
Here's the press release:
ABOUT THE BOOK
Blueprint Crochet: Modern Designs for the Visual Crocheter Robyn Chachula
Learn the universal symbol language of crochet and create gorgeous patterns with Blueprint Crochet, a graphical interpretation of contemporary designs made just for the visual crafter. Robyn Chachula, a structural engineer turned crochet designer who was influenced by the appeal of visual Japanese crochet patterns, designs using a graphic pattern treatment called symbol crochet. This graphic pattern treatment is for any crocheter that can understand maps better than verbal directions, illustrations better than narratives, and three-dimensional drawings better than step-by-step directions.
Robyn takes each crochet design and breaks it down stitch by stitch and increase by increase in a diagram format so the visual crocheter; can see, as well as read, each step. Each project is broken down into the Plan that shows the overall picture, the Details that show the crochet stitch pattern, and the Construction that shows the steps to assemble the project. With contemporary designs from trendy to classic, each project offers a fresh take on crochet.
Crocheters can choose from effortless motif patterns for purses, earrings, necklaces, and earrings, quick-stitch patterns that are perfect for tunics, wraps, belts or scarves, vogue granny squares that translate wonderfully into sweater coats, comfy tops, shawls, or boleros, and stitch-repeat patterns for jackets, dresses, vests, and tops. With Blueprint Crochet, anything is possible!
That's right.... I wrote it in SYMBOLS!
*Well on Amazon at least, you will have to share the news with your local bookstore or yarn shop for now. But soon real soon, they will have it too- um, hopefully!
