Crochet Pillows, with Tunisian and Traditional Techniques.
And don't forget her Tunisian crochet book: Tunisian Crochet: The look of Knitting with the Ease of Crochet.
Many of the projects caught my attention, but the one I will try first is the above photo, Premium Cable. This is a simple Tunisian CABLE pattern. There are 21 photos that illustrate step by step how to do this technique. Don't be scared though, 21 photos doesn't indicate how hard the pattern is, but how thoroughly Sharon teaches! Have I brought home my point yet? The point is... this book is about learning new things... and scarves are just the vehicle to make great projects in the process. You can apply these techniques and stitch patterns and apply what you've learned to any project.
If you want to stick with traditional crochet for now, the Sea Splash Scarf (blue above) is really lovely. The rolling wavy edge on both sides makes this scarf really feminine.
