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 guide—full 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.
Mollie Makes Crochet
is one of those rare books that is as accessible and enjoyable for beginning
crocheters as it is for advanced. Pre-order your copy today and choose which
pattern you want to be begin first—will it be a granny square or chevron afghan
or a set of Russian dolls.
P.S. Which pattern would you begin first?
