The appeal of nature .........yarn style.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 75 Birds and Butterflies to Knit & Crochet (Paperback)
This is another lovely book, just to hold and browse through .
The bulk of the book is the instructions for the various birds, butterflies and beasties in it, so I think this book is real value for money.(How often do you buy a book of this nature, and then discover that a big chunk of it is taken up with telling you basic techniques? This one keeps such info to a minimum, and you get right into the patterns.)
It's clearly laid out, easy to follow, and you get all the birds etc illustrated first in "themes"
such as "spring", then you use the index at the back to track the actual instructions......easy peasy!And good for using up left-overs!
It also sets you thinking about how you could use these flowers , leaves and beasties to embellish other items eg some of the flowers or leaves could be used on a hat-band, cushion cover, blanket, even stitched onto a basket!
I can recommend this book, both for itself, and for your bookshelf.
