Enchanting projects to crochet and embroider
Double crochet (US single crochet) forms a dense, firm base that’s ideal for stitching on using either crochet yarn or stranded cotton. The effect is a beautiful, textured, raised design that combines the delicacy and charm of embroidery with the soft, tactile feel of crochet. This means you can transform crocheted items into stunning, intricate pieces.
Beginning with a basic introduction to the materials, tools and techniques, including stitch instructions for both crochet and embroidery, delve into a collection of 10 pretty projects. Discover an enchanting meadow-themed tapestry, a basket set emblazoned with roses, a granny-square blanket adorned with woodland birds, enchanting mushroom bunting and more.
Each project begins with a crochet pattern, followed by detailed instructions on how to embroider your items. All the projects have a corresponding transfer or chart, meaning you can start embroidering straight away. To transfer, simply cut out the transfer motif and iron it onto your crochet just as you would transfer onto regular fabric.
All the transfers are bound into the back of your book, with a handy pocket on the inside back cover for storing them

Anna is a keen blogger and runs her website www.moochka.co.uk where she shares her love of knitting and crochet. Anna is also a workshop tutor, teaching knitting and crochet across the UK. She has published four books with Search Press, and her Crocheted Wreaths for the Home (Search Press, 2020) is a bestseller.
