The "aquatic" addition to our successful series! A beautiful collection of seashore-inspired wonders to knit and crochet.Following the very successful 100 Flowers to Knit & Crochet and 75 Birds, Butterflies & Little Beasts, here is the next exciting exploration of a world of things to knit and crochet. 75 Seashells, Coral & Colorful Marine Life to Knit & Crochet features a collection of patterns based on life found in the deep seas and along the shoreline--from lovely sea urchins and lush seaweed to colorful coral reefs, curvaceous seashells, adorable crustaceans and much more! Each "specimen" is displayed in a comprehensive directory at the front of the book, showing the designs in actual size. These are cross-referenced to the technical section in the second part of the book, where step-by-step directions for how to create each item is given, plus all the crochet designs are all charted as well. Also included are yarn requirements, complete assembly and finishing instructions for each design. Additionally, project ideas for how to use your creations are included, ranging from jewelry and accessories, to home decor ideas like display arrangements, or quirky play sets children will love.
