Until now, there has not been a complete and authoritative guide that covers the engine rebuild and build-up process from beginning to end. Jeep 4.0 Engines is the essential guide for an at-home mechanic to perform a professional-caliber rebuild or a high-performance build-up.
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!
