Tapestry Crochet Basics includes step-by-step photo tutorials that demonstrate 3 different tapestry crochet stitch techniques. It also includes 6 projects that you can crochet to practice your new skills.
The tutorials included demonstrate how to work tapestry crochet:

The straightforward tutorial instructions take you through the process of carrying your unused yarn color and how to change yarn colors as you crochet across rows and rounds. There are also instructions included to show you how to manage the spot where your rounds meet when you are crochet projects like the Blending Colors Hat. A photo tutorial has also been included to demonstrate how to create the Eyelets used in the Tie-Up Choker and the Spanish Tile Bag. The photo tutorials are provided from page 2-9.
Each pattern included in Learn to Tapestry Crochet is written in U.S. (American) Crochet Terms.

Gauge is provided at the beginning of each written pattern and it varies for each of the designs. Additional pattern notes are included where they are needed within the written pattern in italics and in parenthesis.
Color charts are also included for the patterns. The full written instructions have also been provided so you can choose whether you would prefer to follow the written instructions, or the simple color charts.
Please take the time to read the Pattern Notes in full at the beginning of each pattern, as they include important information that you need to know to be able to successfully crochet your chosen projects.
