The Loopy Lamb Jan 2021
Stylish Succulents to Crochet contains the patterns for 15 colourful cacti and other potted plants. The cover is bright and clean and really drew me in to take a better look. The pictures in the book are beautiful, although limited to only pictures of the projects. No tutorial-based photography to supplement the patterns were included with the patterns. The projects look beautiful and really get me itching to break my hooks out and to start a new crochet window plant garden. This book, like this author’s other title I’ve reviewed, Mini Amigurumi Animals, is all about brevity and getting to the point. It’s what I would imagine is the crochet equivalent to minimalism. You get the stitches you need to create the project but without any of the supporting tools to help you find the most success possible. No difficulty rating is provided in the book, that I could find, but I’d recommend this book only to people that have amigurumi experience and are intermediate level crocheters at a minimum. If you have experience crocheting and assembling other similar succulent patterns, even better because it will help make understanding the assembly process of these succulents easier for you.
