My Review

I love to look through patterns books for knitting and crocheting. It inspires me to create, design, to play with colors, and to imagine. This book surpasses my expectations. I could easily see myself purchasing a physical copy of this book to keep on my shelf with the few other go-to crochet books on my shelf. The author describes how she chooses colors very well – it makes sense. I will use this information to help me choose in the future. The pictures of her motifs are clear enough that if you don’t understand the pattern and/or graph you could very well crochet it anyhow by just looking at the photo. The stitches show very well. I like how there are notes for the pattern. I like notes in patterns no matter where they are and prefer patterns with them. The book is well done and I want to buy a physical copy for me to have on my shelf.

I received this book from Net Galley for a honest review.
