Description

Extreme crochet is not for the faint hearted. Imagine the biggest hooks, the chunkiest yarns and some stuff that’s not even yarn at all and you’re on the right track. Extreme crochet is fun and addictive, quirky and thought-provoking. And immensely satisfying. 

Choose chunky, high-loft woollen yarns, or fabric and T-shirt yarns, string, rope, washing line or even make your own. If it’s long and cord-like, then you can probably crochet with it. 
So what can you do with extreme crochet? Anything you like! It’s perfect for maxing out the classics; want a cushion? Super-size it with big yarn. A blanket? Whip up one in a day with mega wool. A necklace? Walk on the wild side with funky T-shirt yarn. 
Extreme crochet doesn’t have to mean that everything you make is massive, just that everything you make is awesome. 
This book will initiate you into the world of extreme crochet. It will show you how to work with a variety of traditional and contemporary materials, alongside a whole range of big hooks to create beautiful home wares and fashion accessories. 
Remember: this is a double knit-free zone!
