Madder Triangles is a collection of 8 new exciting crochet designs, it contains 3 blankets, 2 shawls, 2 scarves and 1 wrap.
This book is a crochet book with a difference, rather than focusing on crochet techniques it focuses on colour and surface design.
All the patterns use the same basic triangle motif with a couple of variations, the motif is suitable for all levels of experience from beginners who have mastered a granny square to advanced crocheters.
All the patterns except for one contain at least one orange triangle.
The book is full of stunning photographs and features innovative and easy to understand "crochet by number" colour charts which enable you to create a Madder Triangles masterpiece of your own.
All the patterns in this book have been crocheted using The Natural Dye Studio's yarns.
The book does not cover technical reference of crochet techniques as there are many resources available in print and on the internet for this purpose. However, it does include some useful explanations.
It is written in English crochet terms, but also has American stitch translations.
I make pretty things exclusively using The Natural Dye Studio's luxury yarns.
The subtle plant dyed colours lend themselves to being mixed together in one big project.
I am fascinated by the gaps between the joined motifs, they often form a secondry
un-planned design that you will only discover after joining them.
I like suprises - :-)
