200 fun things to crochet, edited by Victoria Lyle and published by search press. This one captured my attention immediately. The jacket shows exactly what you can expect to find in the book, cute fun projects and easy instructions on how to make 200, leaves, flowers, butterflies, bugs, vegetables and more. To make the motifs larger simply switch up the yarn and hook size, et voila a giant sweetcorn! I hooked up a cute butterfly. It was easy as pie and took about 3 mins from start to finish. Skill levels are indicated as part of the information for each motif/creature. This book is perfect for beginners and learners and will also keep the advanced hooker happy too! I plan on making a cushion for my niece and popping on as many tiny creatures and flowers as I can fit onto it! Various crochet techniques used throughout the book are included for reference at the back, very handy. There are also squares and hexagons galore. This book is a superb reference book and will come in useful for years to come, well worth the GBP14.99 I say. * Lazy Daisy Jones * 200 small projects to crochet no matter what your skill level. Levels are indicated from beginner to advanced. 3D projects are inspired by nature and include crocheted flowers, birds, bugs, leaves and sea creatures. You'll also find floral block designs. Projects are a great way to use up odd leftover yarn. Equipment, yarn, crochet as well as finishing techniques are given at the back of the book, with useful images. Photos of all the projects appear at the front of the book, then again with the instructions. Some of the floral blocks have chart designs, favourites are lazy daisy and sunflower. There are circles, squares and triangles. Square blocks could be stitched together to make a blanket. I can see the porcini mushrooms, oak leaves and acorns as well as butterflies being very popular. The hammerhead shark and whales are must-crochet. * yarnsandfabrics.co.uk * Great book for quick crochet ideas.. lovely pictures and step by step instructions.. easy to follow, loads of great ideas that I'm looking forward to making. -- Charlie Young * Customer Review * A great crochet book, full of creative fun small projects, perfect for using up a stash of yarns or an excuse to buy more yarn :) I'm between a beginner and intermediate crocheter and found the written instructions clear to follow, I've never crocheted following a chart before so it is helpful to have both of these forms to follow giving me a better understanding of using a chart pattern. There is a great range of patterns, flowers, insects, marine creatures and botanicals along with some very pretty floral blocks, triangles etc. The range of projects cover many seasons/holidays - so you can combine them together to create some lovely Spring, Autumn, Winter or under the water themed wreaths. Each pattern is graded by skill - beginner, intermediate or expert. Each crocheted item is clearly and attractively photographed - with a great summary of all the crocheted project and its skill level at the beginning of the book. There is also a whole section on techniques and stitches. I just wish there was more information on which hooks to use than general guidance which I know depends on yarn type etc. So far I have made 3 beautiful flowers, and I'm looking forward to making a starfish and sea urchin. This is the perfect book for anyone wanting to move on from bland beginner crochet creations, and create some fun crocheted items whilst stretching your ability with a full range of projects at different skill levels. -- Angela Moore * Customer Review * Such a lovely project book containing 200 nature based designs such as Fish, Flowers, Plants & Bugs. The book has easy to follow instructions and has a detailed section on the techniques needed making it easy for beginners but also offers a challenge to those who have been crocheting for a while. The projects can then be added to other creations such as Blanke
