A great reference book for the library of any knitter or crocheter. There are flowers, leaves, fruits, vegetables, lady bugs and butterflies to make out of yarn to adorn hats, scarves or even afghans. The patterns are grouped by skill level so you don't accidentally find yourself "over your head" with a pattern that is too difficult. The variety of flowers is enormous - daisies, poinsettas, roses, tulips, pansies and flowers I've never heard of. If your imagination needs a jumpstart, there are suggested projects at the back of the book to get you started. How about a shopping bag to take to the grocery store with a small cluster of peas and carrots attached to the handle? I had this book on my wish list for several months and no one took the hint so I bought it for myself. It was a great gift.

Awesome comprehensive book of flower embellishments for your yarn projects. I only crochet, so I've only used 1/2 of the book, but have found the patterns well done and easy to understand. The overall outcomes are so cute and you can use them to give your projects that last touch.
