with Linda Permann
Tired of crocheting scarves and blankets, but nervous about moving on to more complex patterns? Well, fear no more! In Beyond Rectangles, published author and crochet designer Linda Permann personally teaches you the techniques necessary to take your crocheting to new heights.
In Beyond Rectangles, Linda demystifies the often intimidating process of choosing yarn, making (and measuring!) a gauge swatch, and crocheting garments. Stitch along with her as she guides you through a simple baby cardigan pattern, all the while sharing her tips and tricks for creating professional looking projects. Learn how to create smooth edges in your work, link stitches, increase, decrease, and shape sweater pieces. In-depth tutorials on blocking and finishing are sure to be invaluable for every level of crocheter, and you'll even learn a fun surface embellishment technique that you can use to make monograms, flowers, or any shape you can draw on the surface of your sweater.
