Mollie Makes Crochet

Jul 18, 2013

Yesterday I received my copy of Mollie Makes Crochet in the mail. With a collection of patterns from a range of talented designers, I think I have a new favorite how-to crochet book. Not only are the 20+ crochet patterns an inspiring mix of classic granny square, chevron, and edging designs with a modern retro twist, but illustrated how-to chapters and tip sections are perfect for beginning crocheters. 

 

For my first project, I am torn between whipping up a stack of the elegant applique flowers and one of the fun and funky monster gadget covers. I am particularly fond of the one-eyed monster with his floppy ears.

Crochet-a little bit retro, a little bit thrifty looking-it seems to sum up the modern handmade, homespun look we creatives love so much. You can search high and low for that just-right granny blanket, or you can go ahead and learn this enjoyable and highly addictive technique and makes it yourself (we strongly advise the second option!). Choosing your pattern and your yarns is just as much fun as getting cozy in front of the TV for some me-time crafting. And the thrill of making something beautiful that you'll forever feel proud of? Well, we all know you can't beat that feeling.

 

So, we're so excited to present this crochet guidefull of easy to follow instruction and fresh projects from all our favorite Mollie Makes designers, from Emma Lamb to Anita Mundt. Let these talented hooksters share their years of experience, handy tip and anecdotes with you.

Colorwork crochet afghans after you get the color you want your afghan in then get a color that will go with that for your pillow and other home decor. But first establish the color for the afghan and then move on to the rest of your decor.
