Crochet Boutique Book Review and GiveawayPosted: October 18, 2012
Recently, I was lucky enough to receive a review copy from Sterling Publishing of CROCHET BOUTIQUE “30 Simple, stylish hats, bags and accessories” by Rachel Oglesby, published by Lark Crafts.
Are you looking for crochet designs that are quick to crochet yet trendy? If you like crochet accessory patterns that are simple yet fashionable, then this book is for you. Some of my favorite items to crochet are accessories and Crochet Boutique has plenty of them. There are a total of 30 crochet patterns including 7 hat patterns, 10 scarf and cowl patterns and 9 bag and accessory patterns. Each one is stylish and trendy for today’s crocheter.
Crochet Boutique has a little of everything. Rachel describes the crochet items herself in the Introduction: “Stylish items to adorn yourself. Cherished gifts to make for your loved ones and fashionable accents for your home”.
There is a full techniques section in the back of the book that describes all you will need to know to crochet the items in this book. Since most of the designs are accessory items, they all appear to be quick to stitch. Except for the Bamboo Handle Bag (which is intermediate) they are ALL rated beginner and easy and use mostly #4 worsted or #5 bulky weight yarns.
Need a quick gift for a trendy relative? This book has many crochet items that fit the bill. I can see several items that I will be making for my daughters this Christmas!
If you are on Ravelry, you can see all 30 projects HERE!
