This project has been added to your afghan patterns.
The Complete Guide to Symbol Crochet is an amazing resource book, written for anyone interested in learning a wonderful pattern reading technique! For years I have wanted to learn all about symbol crochet patterns, this book is just what I needed to get started! Symbol Crochet is a one language, visual format that can be understood by crochet artists from around the world. Not only is this a great crochet reference book, it also includes 9 fun patterns too!
This amazing 97-page book is loaded with all the information you will need to get started with symbol crochet. Written by Rita Weiss and Susan Lowman for Leisure Arts, this easy to read book will be your one stop guide to symbol crochet. Some of my favorite pages include a dedication to crochet legend Jean Leinhauser (pg. 3), the history of symbol crochet (pg. 4) and a quick symbol guide that shows each symbol and the crochet abbreviation that goes with it (pg. 8 & 9).
To top it off, there are 49 pages filled with all of the symbols you will be using along with the written directions and graphic illustrations for optimal learning. The fun patterns included in this book are written in both symbol and standard crochet terms; this makes it easy to check your symbol reading skills as you learn this new technique! I hope you will love this new pattern reading technique as much as I do!
