practical and inspiring,
This review is from: 75 Crocheted Floral Blocks: Beautiful Patterns to Mix and Match for Throws, Accessories, Baby Blankets and More (Paperback)
A great selection of blocks for crocheters. They include the typical square but also hexagons, circles, triangles and diamonds. The theme is flowers and these blocks are pretty stunning, many in a lacy effect but also some solid blocks. The book takes you through materials and tools needed, a very useful block size section, working directions, block arrangements, edgings, project planning and more. The meat of the book is a collection of blocks arranged by colour. There are excellent photos of each block. We then move on to the instructions. These are very clear and you also get another photo of the block plus a chart, which can be read by following the symbols in the book. Last but not least, there are four good projects - a throw, purses, cushion and scarf. I love the daisy chain square, the lacy daisy square, the sunflower square and my favourite pattern in the book is the shamrock triangle. Crochet is the perfect on the go craft and this book is ideal for projects you can create during your lunch hour, on the train etc. It's great for using leftover yarn. You could create some stunning work using this book. This review first appeared on yarnsandfabrics website.
