July 09 If you're looking for small projects to use up oddments, you'll love what this book has to offer. While the majority of the book covers a comprehensive directory of flower patterns, there are also designs for leaves, vegetables and insects, with a butterfly, bumblebee and a ladybird all included! Whatever you're favourite bloom, this book is sure to cover it. Towards the back there are also ideas on how to use them to embellish clothing, accessories and gifts. With versatile and simple designs, this book will become a staple in your knitting library. * Knit Today * Summer 09 As with certain DIY products, this book provides exactly what it says on the label. And then some more, since there are also leaves, vegetables, butterflies and fruit in addition to the flowers. The beaded blackberries look edible they are so plump and glossy. The crochet instructions are both written and charted. The pattern for each flower is only in one technique, so if you wanted to crochet the lavender or knit the pansies, you will have to try and adapt from knitting and crochet respectively. The collection goes over some of the same ground as Suzann Thompson's Crochet Bouquet (Lark Books) but with charts for the crochet and different interpretations where the flowers are the same. There's room for both on my shelves, but if I had to choose I'd pick the "100 Flowers" because of the crochet charts, the lavender bunch and the single, comprehensive index that Suzann's book lacks. Lesley Fidler * SlipKnot * June 09 A delightful collection of blooms, ideal for decorating clothing, accessories and homewares. Choose from simple spiral roses, pretty poppies, elaborate layered flowers, and fabulous felted blooms, all of which are a perfect way to use up scraps of yarn. You will also find plenty of ideas for embellishing your flowers with beads, buttons and sequins. * Knit Today * Issue 7 Sometimes we hear about something that reminds us of what wonderful people knitters can be. Last month, a little birdie told us that a group of knitters (the British Banter group on Ravelry) were all clubbing together to make a member's wedding extra special. Clare has a vision of a woolly wedding and asked for a little help knitting flowers and other decorations. Before she knew it she was absolutely inundated with hundreds of flowers, leaves and even tiny fairies and caterpillars in every colour of the rainbow! * Knit Now * March 09 At last a stylish, contemporary knitting AND crochet book on flowers (and veg!). Unlike other books which revive old patterns, [this book] generates a plethora of new, colourful and exciting designs. The book gives inspiration for the complete beginner (a short how to guide at the beginning) with clearly labelled basic designs for the novice to try. And for the adept knitter, patterns honestly labelled as intermediate to advanced. The use of colour combinations is excellent, the cover showing an enticing layout, stylishly displayed. An absolute must for all makers - a great mix of knitting and crochet; the combination of both skills being a winning formula. It is great value for GBP10.99 (approx 10p a pattern!) and a lovely square, handbag-sized book. It is equally inviting for the groovy teenager wanting to customise their lapel with a coloured garland, to women of all ages, inspired to add a contemporary corsage to their outfit or household items. * Craft Business * May 2012 Although we're previously mentioned this collection of beautiful blooms for embellishing clothes, accessories, cushions and throws in the magazine, it deserves to be here once more. This was Search Press' top selling title last year and it's now on its 12th reprint. The flowers, for hand knitting and crochet, are the perfect way to use up scraps of yarn or practice using novelty yarn. The flowers are beautifully arranged on the pages and cross referenced to clear instructions. There's also plenty of inspirations for embellishing your fini
