    A craft lovers delight

    Suzann Thompson's second book, Crochet Garden, is a delight for craft lovers of all skill levels. The book is divided into five sections, the first of which clearly explains the basic skills used throughout the book and gives absolute beginners information on where to find more resources to start their crochet adventures. The subsequent chapters walk the reader through Suzann's Botanical, International, Fun & Fantastic, and Inspired gardens, each with its own fun projects and clear instructions. Get your hook and yarn, don't forget to bring your own creativity, and enjoy as you make your own beautiful crocheted garden.

    Beautiful flowers!

    Suzann Thompson, author of Crochet Bouquet, has released Crochet Garden, which I found to be filled with colorful and delightful handmade flowers. The author tells us that any kind of yarn can be used to create the flowers in the book, and that thick yarn will make a bulky flower, while thinner yarn will make a smaller, cuter one. The first section is based on familiar flowers, like the violets, dogwoods, orchids and more. The Inspired Garden section has flowers to crochet that have more of a decorative motif style look. And, in the International Garden area, there are lots of flowers from all over the world.

    I really enjoyed seeing what flowers are special to different regions, like the European rose or the Russian spoke flower. In the last chapter the author shares fanciful ideas, my favorite was the Candy Cornflower, an inventive and fun idea where she crocheted single candy corn elements and then grouped them in a circle which made an adorable flower! I also appreciated how Crochet Garden has craft projects at the end of each chapter to show you ways to incorporate these beauties after they’ve been made.

    Lots of cute flowers

    There are many patterns for crocheted flowers and suggestions for how to use them. I can't wait to make them all!
