Sorry -- sold out!
Written by Yoko Suzuki, a designer who shows up often in Magic Crochet and Decorative Crochet magazines! First off, there is a 48 page crochet tutorial in the center of the book, from the very basics to Irish crochet and Bruges lace techniques. Patterns are included for 16 doilies, 4 luncheon mats and coasters, 1 round tablecloth, 1 piano cover, 1 bedspread, 2 collars, 9 bags and pouches, and 2 pillows, all using symbol crochet charts. Most are shown using size 40 cotton thread but some use heavier threads; of course any size thread can be used if size is not important.

The shawls here refer to baby shawls or blankets. This 48-page digest size booklet has 19 pages of "crochet know how" instructions and patterns for 10 different granny-type squares, with instructions for assembling them into baby blankets. Patterns have written instructions plus symbol crochet charts. Patterns use a 3.5 mm hook and 3 ply yarn, but any yarn and appropriate hook size can be substituted.
