Never have knitting and crochet played so well together as they do in Candi Jensen's charming projects, designed to highlight everything you love about each craft. Sweet clusters of cherries gatehr on a child's cardigan, sueded granny squares add panache to Fido's seater, and whimsical crocheted flowers put just the right flair in hats, scarves, bags and pillows. Put your knitting needles and your favorite hook to work stitching up possibilities you never knew existed.
When combined in a single garment, pillow, or throw, knitting and crochet can create dazzling effects. Knitting Loves Crochet is brimming with unique designs that make the most of both crafts. You'll find great patterns that use crochet to create edgings, such as a chic knit cardigan edged with lacy crochet; a stunning, fitted tank finished with a paler shade of crochet at the top and bottom; and placemats trimmed with delicate crocheted color. Other patterns use crocheted insets and motifs — granny squares in dog sweaters, flowers on a felted purse, fingerless gloves with beaded crochet wrist trim. The possibilities are endless!
