Summary

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!

    A Midwesterner contemplates the view of America from a remote Icelandic village: “A pleasure to read and ponder.” —Booklist (starred review) 
     
    A Minnesotan of Icelandic ancestry, Bill Holm had traveled all over the world, gathering material for a number of rich and memorable books. Then he decided to journey to the land his family had long ago left behind for the United States, and moved into a town with one general store in a nation of a few hundred thousand people. This book recounts his time at Brimnes, his fisherman’s cottage on the shore of a creek in northern Iceland. There, he embarks on a very different life in a very different world, and from thousands of miles away, considers the fate of America—“my home, my citizenship, my burden”—in these provocative, compelling essays. 
     
    “A master storyteller.” —Los Angeles Times 
     
    “Bill Holm’s life in [this] place of spare beauty will make readers wish they had a Brimnes where they could restore their souls.” —Pioneer Press (St. Paul)
