It’s rare when I want to make over half of the patterns I find in a book and when I do that book becomes a well-worn favorite. I’m especially keen to make the cute Matroyshka nesting dolls, cube ottoman, lace and wire bowl, zig zag afghan, chunky doily rug, tissue box cozy, chevron bedspread, blooming pot holders, racy pink runner, overstuffed seat cushions, the tiered cozy, flowering trivets, pot scrubbies, and the pan handlers. I’ve never crocheted with Craft Wire before and I’m looking forward to trying it. I’d also like to work up the scrubbies in one of the colorful Red Heart Scrubby Yarns like this one.
The easy to understand instructions are given in written form and diagram. In the back of the book there are illustrations for all the stitches/techniques used. I especially appreciated Bara's many tips on choosing yarn colors.
I particularly enjoy the way color is handled in this book. It makes the patterned feel fresh.
The projects in Crochet at Home are all colorful, occasionally unique (crochet wire anyone?), and address common objects in unexpected ways (ruffled tea cozy). They are also accessible and fun for someone that isn't a master at the craft yet, but who would still like to make something more complicated than a potholder or scarf.
I will be completing several of the patterns from this book.
