I recently tried to purchase a retro crochet book for a specific pattern and I accidentally purchased the wrong old book. It turned out to be okay, though, because I actually really like the book that I ended up with. It’s called Afghan Traditions and I’m loving seeing the way that so many of today’s crochet afghan patterns are based on a style that can be seen in this book.
Welcome to my stop on the All Koval blog tour for Imagical Seasons! The blog tour kicked off a few days ago and runs through July 22nd. I’m thrilled to be in such great company on this tour and to be able to introduce you to this unique and interesting set of crochet books.
I’m excited to share that I’m going to be part of the blog tour for Imagical Seasons, a set of crochet books by Alla Koval.
I have three books to share with you today – one that’s crochet only and two more that are just beautiful general craft books. All three of these books are published by Ryland Peters & Small and CICO Books, a publisher worth knowing if you aren’t familiar with them already.

Hooked on Crochet by Ruth Maddock is a how-to-crochet book that teaches the basics of crochet through direct instruction as well as simple patterns.

Here are five things I think are great about this particular crochet book.
