Double crochet (US single crochet) forms a dense, firm base that's ideal for stitching on using either crochet yarn or stranded cotton. The effect is a beautiful, textured, raised design that combines the delicacy and charm of embroidery with the soft, tactile feel of crochet. This means you can transform crocheted items into stunning, intricate pieces.

Beginning with a basic introduction to the materials, tools and techniques, including stitch instructions for both crochet and embroidery, delve into a collection of 10 pretty projects. Discover an enchanting meadow-themed tapestry, a basket set emblazoned with roses, a granny-square blanket adorned with woodland birds, enchanting mushroom bunting and more.

Each project begins with a crochet pattern, followed by detailed instructions on how to embroider your items. All the projects have a corresponding transfer or chart, meaning you can start embroidering straight away. To transfer, simply cut out the transfer motif and iron it onto your crochet - just as you would transfer onto regular fabric.
