My first craft book Crochet Techniques published by Sally Milner Publishing, Crochet Techniques is an international standard craft book and is being sold worldwide

My 2nd book, Freeform Crochet & Beyond brings together a diverse collection of crafts that can be incorporated into the freeform technique & offers a wealth of information for experienced freeformers & to those new to this exciting art form.

My 3rd book Bring Colour To Crochet presents the reader with 64 interesting & practical stitch patterns that explore the many varied ways of introducing colour & novelty into their work. Bringing colour into a project can be as easy as working rows of surface chain across some plain double crochet, dc (US sc) to more challenging techniques as changing colour within a given pattern. Freeformers too, will discover some novel stitches & interesting ways of bringing colour to their work

My 4th book Textured Crochet Lace brings together a collection of 64 interesting crochet lace patterns & uncommon stitches that can be worked into your crochet repertoire & increase your knowledge, confidence & pleasure.
Each pattern is in written & diagram (chart) form, with both UK & US terminology & has a clear colour photo

My latest book Tapestry Crochet 64 playful patterns for children is another crochet sampler & my aim is to introduce readers to yet another crochet technique & encourage avid experienced crocheters & beginners alike to try something new, expand their repertoire & enjoy themselves with some colourful, fun designs.
The patterns are divided into 8 sections: (1) Figures & letters ~ (2) Signs & symbols ~ (3) Children & toys ~ (4) Transport ~ (5) Fruit & veg ~ (6) Around the house ~ (7) This & that ~ (8) Birds & animals… so you can please yourself which designs suit your project… be it for a boy or girl, baby, young child or teenager… or even work just a few patterned squares alternated with plain coloured squares…
In Tapestry Crochet (as in Intarsia/Jacquard) a chart, graph or grid is used instead of written instructions for coloured patterns. Each square equals a stitch, each line equals a row and each blank square equals the main colour. Follow grids from the bottom and read right-side rows from right to left and wrong-side rows from left to right. All squares are worked in double crochet dcingle crochet sc). And, for reader convenience, I have written the required number of stitches for each colour, with arrows indicating row direction.
