Two of the hottest fashion trends in recent years---both embellishing and crocheting have emerged as sophisticated fashion influences. Embellished Crochet provides clear, illustrated instructions for all the fabulous embellishments included, with concise explanations and detailed step-by-step photos so you can either re-create them on the projects featured or use them as inspiration for your own designs. Each type of embellishment, from beading to embroidery to embellishing with braid, is shown in full-color close-up photography, with charts and stitch diagrams demonstrating how to work each step along the way.

There are complete directions for making every crocheted project in the book. Organized by theme into six sections---Focus on Color, The Domino Effect, Out of Africa, Got the Blues, Orient Express, and Evening Elegance---each has a variety of projects from the simple to the more complex, ranging from bangles to bags to boleros.

Jam-packed with innovative ideas and techniques for embellishing, this is a book that will appeal to all crocheters in search of new ideas and inspiration. And all are made in easy to work with and widely available Caron yarn.
