5.0 out of 5 stars great mix and match
This is a wonderful collection of floral blocks to knit from one of the best in the business. The collection includes flowers, leaves, colour work, texture, lace and more. There are seven projects that you will want to use. It's easy to make your own projects by repeating the blocks or mixing and matching. This is a very versatile book. I liked the snowdrop and quarto...

Would not say this book is for beginners to knitting, I already knit and would find a bit tricky!

Lovely patterns to dip into and either read about or actually work. May adapt some of the patterns to use for either cross stitch or beadwork.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Bundle of Knitting Ideas, 16 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 75 Knitted Floral Blocks: Beautiful Patterns to Mix and Match for Throws, Accessories, Baby Blankets and More (Paperback)
This is a book of ideas and to give ideas. Using many different knitting (and some crochet) techniques there are motifs to use as described or to adapt to your project. Beautiful presentation is making the book fun just to look at; even for non-knitters and otherwise exasperated husbands...

All techniques are explained at the start of the book with clear illustrations, just after a pictorial index for an easy and well-structured overview of all projects. Further bigger projects using the motifs are at the back.

I would recommend this book to the intermediate and up to advanced knitter although an enterprising comfortable beginner could have a stab at these motifs, too (no project too small to have fun with). It's a really good repository of motifs and ideas for those who like designing their own projects.

What I like best about the book is the variety of floral decor - anything from button hole decoration to intarsia; stitch-on, knit-in, lace, slip-stitch, multi-colour, in-the-flat, in-the-round: something for everyone. Ideas and instructions for little items (like a decorative card) and some for bigger projects such as jumpers, throws, etc. And into the bargain - good value for money!
