I always love peeking ahead at what Amazon’s going to have to offer in the months to come. Can you believe that there are already some crochet titles there that are slated for a 2013 release? Time sure flies! Here are seven titles to look forward to next year:
1. Lacework for Adventurous Crocheters
The full title of this upcoming book by Margaret Hubert is Lacework for Adventurous Crocheters: Master Irish, Forme libre, Broomstick, Hairpin, and Bruges Lace Crochet through Easy Step-by-step Instruction and Fun Projects. I think that about sums up what it’s all about! Having just learned broomstick lace myself, I think this is one that I’m going to want to get. It’s set for a January 1, 2013 release.
2. Le bord plus fin: Galons crochetés, Motifs & Frontières
Nouveau livre de Kristin Omdahl, due out January 8, 2013, est appelé Le bord plus fin: Galons crochetés, Motifs & Frontières. I feel like no crochet library is complete without at least one book of motifs and one book of edges and this book promises to cover both of those bases!
3. Le nouveau Crochet Tunisien
The full title of this new book by Dora Ohrenstein is Le nouveau Crochet Tunisien: Conceptions contemporaines des Traditions séculaires. Tunisian crochet is really popular right now so it makes sense to have a whole book devoted to the topic. It’s due out February 26, 2013.
4. Modèle Crochet chandails
Robyn Chachula, known as @crochetbyfaye, has a new book coming out March 5, 2013 that’s called Modèle Crochet chandails: Techniques de Construction personnalisée. I’m curious to see how this one compares to Dora Ohrentein’s book on the same topic – Custom bonneterie chandails. Both designers are top notch!
5. 50 Sunflowers to Knit, Crochet and Felt
Kristin Nicholas has a new book coming out mid-March called 50 Sunflowers to Knit, Crochet & Felt: Patterns and Projects Packed with Lush and Vibrant Color That You Will Love to Make. A whole book devoted to crafted sunflowers – what a great niche topic!
6. 100 Colorful Granny Squares to Crochet
This upcoming book by Leonie Morgan looks like it could be the quintessential new book for crochet squares. The full title is 100 Colorful Granny Squares to Crochet: Dozens of Mix and Match Combos and Fabulous Projects (Tricot & Crochet). The expected release date is March 19, 2013.
7. Crochet One-Skein Wonders
How often do you have just one skein of a great yarn? I know it happens to me all of the time. That’s why I’m excited about the late March release date of Crochet One-Skein Wonders: 101 Creative Projects by Judith Durant and Edie Eckman
You can’t get any of these crochet books now, but you can bookmark / pre-order them, and in the meantime you can get my book – Crochet a sauvé ma vie!
