Crochet Pink by Janet Rehfeldt is a beautiful 2013 crochet book honoring and recognizing people who have dealt with a breast cancer diagnosis, either their own or that of a loved one.
Today I want to share another crochet book with you: Susan Pinner’s Granny Squares: 20 Crochet Projects With a Vintage Vibe. About Granny Squares Susan Pinner has put together a great collection of ideas for putting a spin on the classic granny square and using that updated motif idea to make a set of terrific crochet projects. The projects are all designed for the contemporary home that gets inspired by classic crochet designs. There are some motif-based projects and there are other projects that are large items based on the basic granny design (such as a crochet stool cover). Sometimes the designs stick to the classic granny stitch look and other times there are details added like the flower-in-the-center approach to a granny square. These little twists and turns put a fun edge on working the classic granny square and also make for great items. I never get tired of granny squares and I don’t think I’ll get tired of Granny Squares: 20 Crochet Projects With a Vintage Vibe either. 3 Favorite Crochet Projects I really love the variety of projects that are featured in this crochet book but if you twisted my arm to pull out my three favorite crochet projects I’d select:
Some of them are books that I reviewed myself before this book celebration month began. Others were included in my link love posts.
Continuing on with Crochet Book Celebration month today I’ve got a review of It Girl Crochet: 23 Must-Have Accessories by Sharon Zientara.
I was recently lucky enough to receive a package of yarn to test out from Adriafil Yarns. I also received one of their crochet hat kits. It was really fun to work with and I wanted to share it with you here today.
Today’s book isn’t technically a crochet book; it’s designed for knitters. The Knitter’s Notebook by D. Grey is a Chronicle Books journal for knitters.
I thought I’d highlight Little Christmas Decorations to Knit & Crochet by Sue Stratford and Val Pierce.
