Quick and Easy Crochet: 100 little crochet projects to make A perfect gift for some who has everything and loves yarn projects. This is a book packed with an eclectic mix of crochet patterns for quick makes, ranging from flowers to beanie hats, Christmas makes to bears, purses to granny squares It would be suitable for people who are fairly confident in crochet but wouldn t be suitable for beginners There are short sections on crochet know how and stitches The photos are clear and instructions are comprehensive I found the layout somewhat strange in that the projects are all jumbled up Grouping projects together would make for ease of comparison It is worth knowing that these projects have all come from books in the Twenty to Make series It s a good book for giving you ideas for small projects.I received my copy from Search Press Studio, in return for an honest review.

A lovely book full of cute and useful ideas for quick make projects Clear photos and good instructions Glad to have in my library. I m not a novice crocheter, in fact I design my own patterns, so I can follow and execute a good pattern well I picked this book up for the bobble purse It is not a great pattern, it doesn t work up well and I jettisoned it to do my own thing in the end. Things I like Large selection of different things to make in this book, ranging from quick little makes to longer projects like bears with outfits and hats.Bright colourful book with plenty of photos.Things I m not so keen on I d prefer it if the items were grouped together eg a hat chapter, a toy chapter etcThe items I d really like to make such as one of the hats the first set of instructions just say following the chart well I can t read the charts I always follow written instruction would be better to have both it briefly discusses what the symbols means at the start but I just look at these diagrams and instantly get confused The bears are all the same pattern just done in different colours with different outfits, would have been better to have had the basic bear pattern at the start of the chapter then have all the outfits afterwards, maybe a selection of toy animals that the outfits would also fit Mouse, rabbit dog etc Many of the items once made seem pointless, have no specific use like the flowers, and random squares would have been nice to have had a larger project that they went towards.Overall it s a nice book if you don t know what you want to make, and would like a mixture of things to try.For me personally I find most the projects a little too twee and old fashioned, once I get my head round charts I ll try a hat but because I have to concentrate on that I m not overly keen to start I received my copy from search press in exchange for an honest review. Great book Easy to understand Lovely book to look through, some nice patterns I will use Saying 100 patterns when around 10 are the same beat wearing different colours is a bit of a stretch I have reviewed quite a few of The Twenty to Make books an they are fabulous.Each one has 20 simple projects that not only give fantastic results but also aid in your learning of new crafts So to get them in one BIG book, for me, is absolutely divine.Purses, Flowers, Beanies and so so much are included There is a lot of crochet handy hints and tips and even a pictorial and written guide to How to Crochet.This is a bright and colourful book filled with inspiration Starting with a traditional Granny Square, there is something for every level of expertise.I adored the Teddy Bear, he is very cute These projects are designed for home decor, giving as gifts or just to make something wonderful for yourself.Easy to follow instructions and some diagrams make each project achievable.This is a great book for beginners and advanced crocheters as there are so many ideas.
