This book is packed full of 101 projects!
I was a little dubious of this book as most
books with this quantity of patterns are filled with
projects you wouldn't want to make.
This is not the case with this book!


This book is PACKED full of FANTASTIC patterns!!!


The book is split into sections.
Each section is a different weight of yarn

  • Thread
  • Lace Weight
  • Super-Fine Weight
  • Fine Weight
  • Light Weight
  • Medium Weight
  • Bulky Weight


The book covers all types of projects that you might want to make.
Everything for different ages and sexes to items for the home
or shopping.
Nothing is missed and I haven't found a project I don't like.


I decided I like this Riding the Waves Neck Warmer
that I would make one for myself.
I choose a dk weight acrylic yarn.

 

I love the way it turned out.
The pattern was easy to follow and gave a fantastic look.
The pattern is in both written and chart format
so however you like to read patterns you are covered.


It was a fantastic quick and effective pattern.
It would make a brilliant pattern to use for gifts.


 The vast array of patterns are all explained in an easy to ready format.
With being in written and chart format everyone is covered.


There are patterns for all ages and all styles of houses.
You can find patterns for everything from jewellery, bags, shawls & hats.
There are patterns for pillows, blankets and even kindle covers.


Quite a lot of the patterns are quick to make projects.
They would make brilliant gifts.
The book is a fantastic investment and at such 
a brilliant price for 101 projects you are getting value for money.


There are patterns for all seasons.

 

Some would make brilliant baby shower gifts!


This is one of those books that you can use the projects
time and again.
It's the sort of book that is full of inspiration
and projects you'll be proud to give as gifts.


I haven't even shown you a percentage of the patterns
that are in this book.
And as you can see the diversity of the patterns is amazing.


This book is for all levels of crocheters.
You need to know the basics but I'm sure you'll find
more than one pattern that you would be able to complete.

Judith & Edie have brought together an amazing array of designers.
They have collated an amazing amount of projects.
I would give this book 5 out of 5!
