Crochet Boutique: 30 Simple, Stylish Hats, Bags & Accessories
on September 7, 2012
I've found a new favorite crochet pattern book in Crochet Boutique: 30 Simple, Stylish Hats, Bags & Accessories .
When I looked through this gorgeous book, I couldn't decide what project to make first. I've been in somewhat of a crocheting slump. I haven't picked picked up my hook and yarn in many months, this pattern book pulled me right out of that dry spell.
Crochet Boutique includes 30 patterns. The sections are Hats, Scarves & Cowls, Bags & Accessories and Home Decor.
There is a basic stitch guide as well for reference, every good pattern book has one. The patterns are clear and easy to read, the photos are beautiful. I love finding a crochet pattern book that not only includes nice, useful patterns, but also has vivid, eye catching photos.
I found all the patterns to be fun, trendy and chic.
I made the Infinity Circle Scarf first. The pattern was very simple and I worked this one up quickly. I just love the result. During the cool months I'm rarely out without a scarf or cowl, so this is perfect.
Next I made the Bonnie Beret, which is inspired by Bonnie & Clyde. Another quick and easy pattern with great results.
Designer Rachael Oglesby has done a fabulous job with this pattern book. I can see myself referring to Crochet Boutique time and again. Plenty of these designs would make nice gifts or spruce up anyones wardrobe.
I received a free copy of Crochet Boutique in turn for my honest opinion. I did not receive any type of compensation for reviewing this book. While I receive free books from publishers and designers, such as this one, I am under no obligation to write a positive review.
