Using a technique discussed in the book Tapestry Crochet, I made this book cover for a friend.

I used a pearl cotton 3/2 and cotton rug warp. The design is an amalgam of several different purses I've seen here and there.

Tapestry crochet is also called "Hard Crochet" because it produces a stiff woven-like fabric.

With tapestry crochet you work with two strands of thread, carrying forward the color that you're not using. Instead of finishing off between color changes, begin using the new color & crochet over the old one.

You can get a much better explanation from the Tapestry book. <G>
