Overview

Crochet bouquets of nearly 50 whimsical, wonderful flowers, in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors! Done in upscale yarns like ribbon, chenille, and silk, this contemporary garden will get intermediate-level crocheters grasping their hooks. Some of the flora looks realistic; others are beautifully fanciful, pure products of the imagination. A simple, well-photographed basics section explains how to create them all: specialty techniques include felting, stacking the flowers, stiffening the petals, and linking the flowers together. “Grow” daffodils, dahlias, ferns, firewheels, primroses, sunflowers, and violets—or even a fantastic blossom with layers of scalloped petals radiating out in increasing size from a crystal button center. For added inspiration, a series of showcase projects incorporates the blossoms, including hats, backpacks, pillows, and cards.

Great flower ideas, with cute color combinations and easy patterns (once you get the hang of the lingo). Beginner crochet enthusiasts will find lots of fun challenges, while experienced folks will enjoy reinterpreting their favorite designs. I appreciated the breakdown of different stitches near the front of the book, as well as the tips, hints and shortcuts that were also listed. Further into the book, each page is dedicated to a design and clearly shows what your flower will look like and how you go about making it. Other flower books are not as in-depth, nor as pretty. I have several books with flower sections and/or dedicated to flowers, and this one is my favorite out of them all.
