A compressed version in english is available for free on the website:
Image Overlay Crochet is a technique based on overlay crochet, where we write stories in yarn, crocheting the background layer and the image layer at the same time, using a special abbreviation and IOC specific techniques.
Once familiar with the techniques and the special abbreviation terminology (’Petranese’), these patterns – thought officially classified as intermediate/advanced – include enough support in form of photo and video tutorials plus Masterclasses for the technique, that even a confident beginner can tackle the patterns.
You should be familiar with basic (US) terminology, confident with counting rounds and stitches and know your stitches from slip stitch to double treble. Tables with the most commonly used abbreviations, punctuation and stitch explanations for our basics, (like sc, hdc, dc, htr, tr, hdtr and dtr) are included in the pattern documents.
Gauge is not important for this pattern.
The square is occasionally shown with a square border. A square border is NOT part of this pattern, but 3 different, compatible square borders are available for free
