Crochet Boutique: 30 Simple, Stylish Hats, Bags & Accessorie
Crochet Boutique: 30 Simple, Stylish Hats, Bags & Accessories has become a favorite pattern book. 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.

Soft and cozy!
Crochet Boutique‘s author, Rachael Oglesby runs a popular blog and also an Etsy shop where she sells her handmade designs and vintage clothing and has almost 7K admirers! It’s not difficult to see why she is so admired, given her modern take on classic crocheted creations. I enjoyed seeing how she updated clothing items, as well as added new current ideas, like the Laptop Cover. The author states in the into that she wants to challenge the notion of crochet as being “unpolished” and instead replace it with items that are trendy, yet timeless.
The projects are ranked by Beginner, Easy and Intermediate, so as long as you have even basic knowledge of crochet, there should be something you would feel comfortable with. There are instructions for Hats, Scarves, Bags, Accessories, and Home Decor. The warmth of these soft and cozy items comes across clearly, whether it is a throw for your couch or mittens and legwarmers. My favorite idea in Crochet Boutique was the Sweetheart garland, with its little pink and red hearts strung on white yarn. It would be so cute hanging in a doorway for the holidays!

There are several patterns included which reflect current styles
There are several patterns included which reflect current styles. I crochet for fun and for friends and quite a few younger people have been asking for projects from this book. Highly recommend even for beginners.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
