A Sea Story is a book with 13 modern mosaic crochet patterns in inset technique (no ends to weave). It contains four chapters with accessories (shawls and scarfs), home décor (pillows and chair pads), blankets and garment designs.
The book was inspired by the sea, and all projects use soothing and calm shade of Scheepjes yarns.
Although every pattern was designed and written with a specific yarn in mind, the mosaic stitch patterns can be easily adapted for the width, height and different yarn weights and hook sizes. The explanations about how to translate them into different kinds of the projects are given in the Tips&Techniques chapter, together with stitch guide and additional information about gauge and blocking.
All patterns come with written row by row (or round by round) instructions together with mosaic charts, where all mosaic double crochet stitches are marked with X. Detailed information about how to follow the charts is also given in the book.
A Sea Story book was printed in the Czech Republic on a premium matt paper.
