30 crochet projects inspired by the runway
by Cheryl Mongomerie
Published by Carlton Books
Hard Cover 176 pages.
fashion crochet has 30 crochet projects within 176 pages.
The book has 4 sections: Wraps & Scarves, Accessories, Dresses, Skirts & Shorts, and Tops & Jumpers.
Also includes an introduction, Practicalities, Resources & Supplies, Index and Acknowledgements.
Of the 30 patterns, it’s a mixture of basic, intermediate, and advances skills. A good mixture of all 3.
There are a lot of nice projects. I would love to make so many of them. The crocheted clothing has made a come back.
My favorite section in the book is the accessories. There are collars, necklaces, corsages, hats, bags, and even bangles.
The instructions are easy to read. Drawn illustrations that show what stitch goes where on the more intricate patterns. Most all of the patterns are shown in different versions and color ways.
If you like to crochet, I recommend this book. I also recommend it as a gift for those on your list that are “crochet-addicts”
Below are a few pages from the book as well as the back cover.
