I’ve recently enjoyed several terrific crochet books, which I started sharing with you on the blog last week and will be continuing to do this week. Up today: Learn to Crochet, Love to Crochet: Over 20 Hand-Crocheted Accessories and Garments to Make for You and Your Friends by Anna Wilkinson.
I love Marly Bird who has been running the Yarn Thing podcast for years, doing terrific interviews of many amazing people including a lot of crochet authors. Her own knitting and crochet patterns have been featured in books and magazines but she has never had her own individual crochet book … until now. Cold Weather Crochet is a collection of 21 Marly Bird crochet patterns designed to keep you cozy and comfy in chilly times and enjoying crafting all year long.
It’s that time of year, the time for looking back and checking out all of the amazing things that we’ve seen in crochet all throughout the year. Yesterday we looked at crochet art in 2015. Today let’s round up crochet books.
Crochet designer Sharon H. Silverman has teamed up with Leisure Arts to create a new book called Crochet Refresher. This book reminds crafters of the basic skills of crochet while providing a terrific set of patterns all designed to make items for babies. Anyone who likes to crochet for little ones will find something to make in this collection.
Margaret Hubert is a fabulous crochet designer, teacher and author of more than one dozen crochet books that provide instructions as well as patterns. Her newest title, Customize Your Crochet, combines her many years of experience into one well-written title that offers advanced crochet instruction broken down into simple steps with easy-to-understand language.
Here’s the latest in 2015 crochet book news including links to recent reviews of new books and a couple of sneak peeks for books that are on their way. These are in addition to the post on 25+ 2015 crochet books published earlier this year! So much great stuff coming out!
Earlier this year I shared several beautiful craft books from CICO Books. I can’t believe that their Fall Catalog is already out but I’m excited to see two terrific new crochet books in their lineup along with a couple of other craft books that I’m already enjoying.
