"Take your yarn for a walk," says author Jenny Dowde, who teaches the freeform "scrumbling" technique. With scrumbling, needleworkers can work unbound by patterns and yet still successfully knit or crochet a project. With just a range of simple stitches and only a few basic techniques, anyone can create lovely and useful household objects and eye-catching wearable art. Full-color photographs illustrate Dowde's methods in action, from completing both basic and advanced stitches to working with wires and beads, along with a host of special techniques, including constructing buttons, unusual closures, and special accents from polymer clay.

The cover is enticing, but the book itself is disappointing. I'm new to crochet, and prefer a more visual approach. There are very few photos, and the written patterns are not supported by charted patterns or the finished result.

I am a beginner and I wasn't happy with this book. Too advance for the likes of me. Tried my hardest to understand but I put it down and gave it back after a week.
