Rating
Crocheted shawls inspired by classic poetry! Just as poetry laces together the simplest of words into dramatic lyrical pieces, Poetic Crochet uses basic stitches to create a romantic, breathtaking collection of shawls and wraps. When creating this classic, wearable collection of shawls, wraps, and stoles, you'll explore a variety of shawl shapes, construction techniques, borders, and edgings. Author Sara Kay Hartman shares her tips for selecting the fibers that work best in shawl making, how to achieve a beautiful drape, how to play with gauge when crocheting shawls, and more. The patterns in Poetic Crochet won't require any special technique knowledge, but rather they have been designed to highlight the simple sophistication achievable with the most basic of stitches. Crocheters with any experience level, beginner to advanced, will find something rewarding--and poetic--in this inspired collection of 20 projects.

Reviews

"Sara Hartmann has found a way to use classic and simple crochet stitches to almost magically explore construction technique and shawl shapes to create beautiful drape and simple sophistication. She has used a great selection of yarns in her designs, some from traditional big box manufacturers and many from independent spinners and dyers. Paired with her great design ideas, she achieves some astonishing results from simple everyday stitches." --Crochet Queen "From the cover to the end of the book, I was impressed with the stunning photography which is beautiful and fitting for the 'poetic' inspiration of this work. The photography is also very detailed and instructive. The close up shots of the designs not only show you the pattern of the stitch work, but also gives you an almost three dimensional feel for the yarn being used. I can feel the crocheted fabric in my mind as I flip through page after page." --Bonnie Bay Crochet
