I've made about a dozen different flowers from this book and have found the written instructions and charts very clear and accurate. At the beginning there's information on how to crochet for the beginner and I've yet to spot a pattern that couldn't be accomplished by a beginner. There's a few pages showing all the possible flowers which makes a handy starting place.

I love how there's also sections on leaves, butterflies and even a caterpillar! This is a beautiful book and crocheting flowers is now my favourite pastime!

My first foray into thread crochet began with this book. I delayed starting the designs because I thought it would be difficult but the explanations and diagrams are so good that by working my way through from the beginning (the designs are graded according to difficulty) I quickly gained confidence and was able to reproduce the flowers. Beautifully illustrated and ideas for how to use the motifs.

I bought this book on a whim and since it arrived, I have spent every spare moment trying out the different designs. Didn't have the recommended crochet cotton but have used up lots of spare cotton yarn experimenting. Just love being able to fill in half an hour and have something pretty to show at the end of it. Am looking forward to creating some personalised Christmas gifts.
One problem, I have yet to work out how to 'anchor the stitch' as per instructions for the Dahlia.

Lots of designs that you would want to do. Easy instructions and patterns, even for a novice like me. Definitely need proper crochet cotton thread if you want to get the same effect as is in the book but can be done with a larger needle and DK or 4 ply - they just won't be so dainty. Having lots of fun with this :)

Very good book. It's a pity that I can't get the colours of the correct yarn to make them. The firm seems not to exist anymore., and there doesn't seem to be a substitute.

A good reference book if yo lie to trim your crochet garments with some floral or leaf embellishment. I make a lot of baby cardigans and like to put a delicate flower on them to finish them off. This book is ideal as it has a lot of the dainty smaller flowers and leaves.
