Crochet is big fashion news and is becoming more and more popular among young crafters. This adorable new book from the team behind Mollie Makes is aimed at complete beginners, but it’s also perfect for those who have completed their first projects and are looking to move on.
A selection of more than 20 contemporary projects from an international range of crochet experts offers a variety of projects. Some are quick and easy, others are more time and labor-intensive, but well worth the effort. A section at the back of the book clearly explains the basics of crochet with step-by-step illustrations.
The book includes ideas for using crocheted pieces around the homemade accessories themselves, as trim embellishments on existing items, and more. Projects include blankets and afghans; cushions; kitchen items such as placemats, crochet-trimmed napkins, potholders, and coasters; and toys and gifts.
“The layout and the photos are gorgeous and clean. The crochet projects are fun, but probably simple for an experienced crocheter. Even an intermediate crocheter could fly through all of the projects in the book, but sometimes that’s exactly the point.” —Knitty
“I think Mollie Makes always does such a beautiful job of inspiring the creative soul. I’ve always admired and loved the look of crochet but never thought it could be done by me. I’ve looked at several tutorials and have tried reading patterns. This book was the first thing I’ve looked at that really clicked and everything made sense. Even if you’re a seasoned pro, this is a must-have book for your library. Every single thing in it is so cute. Total eye candy!” –Schnitzel and Boo
