is a pretty motif to make in this book for almost any occasion,
from abstract shapes to traditional granny squares, summery
beach motifs to Christmas icons. All you need is a crochet
hook and some yarn
some crochet know-how of course, although the front of this
book is blessed with an admirable section for beginners and
those in need of a reminder. Clear drawn diagrams with captions
show all the basics and there is a key to chart symbols and
a bit about what you need to buy (not much). Search Press
publishes more than one excellent book for beginners, but
I think the basics in here are very well done. The bulk of
the book consists of the motifs, and these are handsomely
displayed on a pattern selector before their actual pages.
Motifs go from beginner to advanced, and each one has instructions,
chart, size and materials as well as photos of the finished
item. Choose from squares, circles, snowflakes, flowers, wildlife,
sea creatures and seasonal. What you then do with them is
largely up to you, although there is a short section at the
back showing what has been done with some of them to decorate
various items. Personally I can think of many uses for these
lovely shapes; an ideal book for any crochet fan but a good
choice for somebody fairly new to the hobby.
you cannot find a good range of crochet materials locally
