Handmade by Deb – May 2021

This is a new and updated edition of the best-selling version published in 2011. It features a delightful assortment of birds, bees, butterflies, flowers, fruit and vegetables to knit or crochet. The first section provides useful information about yarns, needles, hooks, symbols, abbreviations and terminology. It also serves as a refresher course of basic techniques. Use it to brush up on knitting and crochet skills. A 20 page directory showcases the 75 beautiful designs in this book. Its pages are organized by theme, for example, Spring things and Woodland walk. Browse through the collection, choose the design you wish to make and then refer to the provided pattern number. The patterns are organised into separate knitting and crochet sections. All patterns have full instructions, including skill level and pictures. Only small amounts of yarn are required. Crochet instructions are given in two formats – written and charted. Lastly the author demonstrates 7 clever ways of using her designs. She shows that with a little imagination these gorgeous handmade items can be used to adorn garments, accessories and much more. I especially like the tea cozy, goldfish aquarium and Christmas dove projects. I love how Lesley uses stitches to create pattern and texture, along with colorful yarn to make realistic designs. In some cases she embellishes her designs with sequins, buttons or beads – like the sweet little goldfish with orange sequins sewn on for scales.
