Simply Adorable Crochet ~ Book Review

Simply Adorable Crochet
by Maki Oomaci
ISBN: 9781937994129
Publication Date: 15 Mar 2013
RRP: £14.99

Simply adorable is the perfect way to describe this book!!!

This is one book you will spend your time saying arrrrggghh!!!

It is full of the most beautiful cute projects!!
All of the projects are of a similar size so you can put the different items together.

The book is full of clear easy to understand instructions and step by step pictures!
I love the fact that you have pictures as well.
I hate getting a book and not understanding what they mean and I love pictures
just to make sure you are doing what you should be doing.
Graphs are also included as well as the easy to understand written patterns!
The patterns are broken down into steps so you find it easier to complete
each part of the project.

The projects start off with standing animals that are worked flat.
This means even beginners can give the patterns a go.
As the book progresses the patterns progress and introduce crocheting in the round
and crocheting around a chain.

The book is spilt into sections.
The first section is all about how to complete the projects:
Tips & Techniques for Assembling a figure
Must-Have Tools
Recommend Materials.

The next section is Baby Animals.
These projects include patterns for:
A Pair of Goats
Three Little Kittens
Nuts & Berries

At the start of each section you get an overview picture of what
is included in the next set of patterns.
The book is spiral bound so it is really easy to keep the book
at the page you are working on.
I love this method as it makes it so much easier to work with the pattern.

I love the fact that not only animals are thought of but also those little extra's.
The little extra's also work really well with each of the animals.

In this section ~ Into The Woods the patterns are:
Mr & Mrs Bear
Apples & Pears
Tweet Street
Quacker Family

 The next section ~ Pretty Posies & Plants:
Flower Basket
Lily of the Valley
Wild Rose

The Sweetest Things:
Cup & Saucer
Spoon & Fork

Winter Holidays:
Bells! Bells! Bells!
Stockings & Booties
Baby's Holiday Shoes
Let It Snow
Holly Jolly Wreath
Gift Boxes
O Tannenbaum!

I don't think I need to say anything else about the book!
I think it says everything itself.
I don't think anything has been missed.
Everyone is catered for and all the designs are described in full detail
with written format, pictures & charts.

I received a copy of the book to review. 
However all opinions expressed are my own.

No monies were received in return for this review.
