In Unusual Crochet, designer Julie Armstrong Holetz applies new concepts and unconventional materials–like wire, raffia, jute, sisal, recycled belts, cloth strips, and felted beads–to twenty-five patterns for bins, baskets, totes, purses, clutches, jewellery, and extra.

Step-by-step directions, detailed how-to images, and important recommendation about creativity, design, and experimentation encourage you to play with fiber, add funky gildings, and use your inventive spirit to customise any pattern–even those on this ebook! From sensible containers like Pink’s Goodie Basket (a classy house in your WIP–works in progress) and Classic Satchel (a sturdy retro messenger bag) to simply plain enjoyable tasks like Petite Fleur Vases (tiny bud vases that maintain water) and Sushi (crocheted California rolls, anybody?), Unusual Crochet provides contemporary twists on old-school strategies that flip easy tasks into gift-worthy creations.
