Ellen Gormley is a well-published crochet designer. She has been designing since 2004 and has had approximately 80 projects featured by magazines and yarn companies including Crochet Today and Interweave Crochet. Ellen was nominated for several categories for the 2009 Crochet Awards and came in first in the Best Designer, Home Décor category.
The book is hard covered with spiral bound pages so that it lays flat when open.
The pictures of each motif are fantastic, up-close and personal, and the instructions and diagrams are easy to follow.
The motifs are all unique and I LOVE that Ellen designed them so that they could all be used together.
I liked the ideas in here. I like to make motifs with my stash of left-over yarn, but any idea in here could be made with a planned pattern too.Published 2 months ago by Kathi Linz
