    Be aware that crochet terms in the United States are different from those in the U.K. This can be confusing as the same terms are used to refer to different stitches under each system. All crochet patterns in this book are written in U.K. and European terms. U.S. crocheters must take care that they work the correct stitches. One way to tell which system is being used in other patterns is that the American system starts with a single crochet, which the U.K. system doesn't have; so patterns with “sc” in them can be identified as American patterns.

    The crochet designer and author of Modern Crochet Bible introduces extreme crochet techniques with eight projects using t-shirt and other chunky yarns.   Extreme crochet is not for the faint of heart. It calls for the biggest hooks, the chunkiest yarns, and some stuff that’s not even yarn at all. But for the intrepid crocheters who are up for the challenge, it’s fun, thought-provoking, endlessly versatile, and immensely satisfying.   In Extreme Crochet with Chunky Yarn, Sarah Shrimpton initiates you into the world of extreme crochet. With illustrated step-by-step instructions, she shows you how to use a range of big hooks as well as a variety of traditional and contemporary materials. You can choose chunky, high-loft woolen 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.   Plus you can test your skills with eight original extreme crochet projects, including beautiful home wares and fashion accessories.   Remember: this is a double knit-free zone!
