Emma Guess is a Fashion Design graduate who was taught to crochet by her mother and has been hooked ever since. Since picking up the hook, she has constantly pushed the craft to see how far she can take it. She strives to challenge stuffy misconceptions about the craft and make modern and quirky crochet designs that will not only appeal to current crocheters, but also bring in new people to the craft.

In 2016 she set up a blog (www.sylviamargaret.co.uk) and Instagram page (@sylviamargaretdesigns) to share her creative ideas. This has been growing in popularity and her online presence has also led to magazine pattern commissions for Crochet Now and Simply Crochet magazines.

To the untrained, eye, Tunisian crochet looks like knitting, but it’s actually an amalgamation of three needlework arts: crocheting, knitting, and weaving. U.K.-based fashion and crafts designer [Emma] Guess uses her good sense of aesthetics and color to create 10 patterns, from scarves to blankets, that anyone would be delighted to copy. The upfront instructions zero in on five stitches (simple stitch, knit stitch, twisted knit stitch, purl stitch, and full stitch), each with good step-by-step details and a unique feature: 16 combination swatches to show the possibilities, including both the finished swatch and directions. Tips and/or notes are embedded in the designs, along with charts of Tunisian symbols and color photographs. If black is a favored color, it’ll be difficult to resist building a yarn stash for projects like an ombre basket, two-way bag, or mitre square blanket. No need for beginner’s luck here.
