If you have been reading this blog for a while you will know 2014 was the year I taught myself to Crochet and I love it! So I thought I would share with you some tips to get you started that I picked up as a beginner. I will have more practical tips in my next post but first I want to share with you my favourite Crochet Book ~ Crochet: The Complete Step-By-Step Guide~ and this is great for beginners....
If you have been crocheting for a while this book has lovely projects in them. There are a lot of great patterns, including bags, toys, stuff to wear, accessories, home and gifts, blankets and cushions. I don't think there is one I won't make at some point. There are some great gift ideas in this book but my first project I made was for myself and I made this lap blanket....
Each pattern has a level of difficulty, so you can pick a project based on your ability.
The only down side is it's a hardback and it is so jam packed with projects, techniques and beautiful photography that it is a heavy book so it's not easy to throw in your bag and carry around. This is a minor thing and doesn't stop me from loving it and recommending it.
Do you crochet, have you got a crochet book you would recommend?
