Ahh, Crochet. Something that I always say I want to learn to do but never do anything with it beyond reading books about it and looking at the pretty pictures. This time I am reading all about how to make various crochet flowers. The book contains 30 fabulous flowers and projects. Most of these flowers are done with a loom, which might be a bit easier for me to figure out… even though it features a handful of different kinds of looms. It then goes in to talk about what kinds of yarns you should use as well as colors – this page was especially interesting because it showed the same flower made with 12(!) different color sets and they all looked wildly different from each other. Then it goes into different techniques for different flowers. BRB, buying myself a loom, these are all so pretty!!!! It also features some crochet techniques as well. These all go over my head but there are photos included with the instructions so if you have any idea what you are doing it should be easy to follow the stitching instructions. Then you can join everything together to make really fun flowery things like doilies or I suppose even blankets if you have enough flowers made!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
