Today I’m happy to share with you Melissa Leapman’s Indispensable Stitch Collection for Crocheters: 200 Stitch Patterns in Words and Symbols.
I had the opportunity to review Poetic Crochet when it first came out (over op About.com haak) and now I’ve had more opportunity to spend time with the book so I thought I’d share some more about it here.
Nature’s Gifts for Baby is the first crochet book by Sara Leighton of Illuminate Crochet. She has always made adorable crochet patterns and now a terrific set of them is curated in this title by Leisure Arts.
Baby Shoes to Crochet by Lucia Forthmann is an adorable little book featuring fabulous patterns for fun crochet baby shoes of all kinds.
Sensual Crochet promotes the idea that we should spoil ourselves with luxury yarns and clothes that make us feel sexy. This is crochet as self-care, which is something I’m passionate about (as you know if you’ve read Hook to Heal!)
Crochetterie: Cool Contemporary Crochet for the Creatively Minded is a new English crochet book from Finnish designer Molla Mills, author of the book Modern Crochet. This new book, considered a sequel to Modern Crochet, continues to showcase the designer’s impeccable Scandinavian style, clean design aesthetic and great graphic appeal.
I am always excited to see a crochet book featuring many patterns, en 100 is different far more patterns than most contemporary crochet pattern books offer. It just feels like you’re getting more bang for your buck … but more than that, it also just floods you with inspiration, which can be the most important part of any crochet book for me!
