Click to preview the minimal hook photo book

The Minimal Hook is the first in a planned series of books—part instructional, part philosophical—for people who have a taste for couture but not hauteur. This elegant little manual shows how to create simple, quirky, luxurious pieces with your own hands, but more important, it speaks to a spiritual and mental state of peace achieved in the process of making.

Other titles in the series will include:
The Minimal Hook 2
(more simple ways to crochet)
The Minimal Tee
(how to alter Men’s XXL tees into feline and fitted lounge wear)
The Minimal Stitch
(how to re-construct mass-produced thrift store clothing into personal couture)

Items from all the books can work alone but are also designed to layer.


About the Author

Christine Chaney
teeniepompel Seattle, WA, USA

Born in the practical midwest, raised in between fields and woodlands, and trained in architecture, I am deeply interested in making meaningful experiences for others in architecture, art and apparel design. Even if the other being only inhabits my designs for the length of an art viewing or the time it takes them to try on a garment or to have a lovely dinner, I want them to feel at "home" while they are there. Nature's structures and patterns, colors and texture deeply inspire my designs as well.

This beautiful book has opened my eyes to the great potential of loose crochet. It seems so obvious now after reading the book that excellent drape can be achieved by just taking the hook size up several notches. The general guidelines instead of fixed, straight-jacket patterns is a step in the right direction. Am looking forward to the next book in the series!
