Class Overview

Conquer that stack of crocheted motifs and turn them into a beautiful finished project! Edie Eckman shows you easy ways to join granny squares, hexagons and other shapes with smooth seams and corners that don't pucker. You'll learn 11 different crocheted connections, including four join-as-you-go techniques, so when you're done, you're done! Use a crochet hook or yarn needle; make them invisible or work them in a contrasting color for design interest. Lacy filler and edge stitches add airiness to your project, and the ingenious Continuous Final Round lets you seam up your whole design with one piece of yarn. Add lots of new elements to your crochet bag of tricks, with help from the author of "The Crochet Answer Book." Edie's blanket pattern, featuring six pretty square variations, is included free!
