Beautiful Book But...,
This review is from: Creative Makers: Simple Crochet: With 35 Vintage-Vibe Projects for Your Handmade Life (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an absolutely beautiful book...I could happily look through it again and again. The paper is thick and luxurious and the photography stunning, if you enjoy a vintage whimsy, as I do.
I'm very new to crochet myself, having just started to learn a few weeks ago. I find the instructions in here quite good however they lack a little illustration, so abeginner may need to hop onto youtube just to check they're getting it right.
The patterns vary. I really like the apple cosy's. yes, they're pretty pointless...but cute and this will be good practice for crocheting rounded shapes. There's a lot of stuff I would never bother with...like a leather steering wheel cover!
Overall a truley beautiful book, but practically speaking probably not the greatest out there.
