I am in love with this book!
I don't think the cover does it justice.
With over 27 sets of patterns
it's jam packed with things to make.
When the title says Crochet for Christmas
it doesn't just mean decorations.
There is a fantastic mix of projects to
decorate for Christmas and things to
make for people for Christmas.
I love the fact that it's a mix of patterns
and to be very honest I think I would
make just about everything in this book!

The projects are varied, everything from a hood,
cowl, slippers to snowman ornaments and
Rudolf jar cozies.

The book is made up of multiple designers
using different yarns and stitches to
create some amazing patterns.
You get to know each designer with each pattern.

There are patterns for every level of crocheter
so you are sure to find something to make in the book.
The book starts with the Silver & Spice Hood
and it's a fantastic pattern at an easy level.

All the patterns are in an easy to read
written format and in some of the patterns
the chart is also included.

As each pattern is designed by a different
designer it means that each of the projects
is unique from any other.
All the patterns use Lion Brand yarn
which means they are easy to acquire
and not too costly.

I cannot express enough about the
amazing designs.
Some are fun like the Angel, Santa's Helper,
& Snowman ornaments.
Others are gorgeous like the North Star Cowl.
The range of patterns are perfect for children,
adults, girls & boys.

I can't believe how much is covered in this one book.
You could make just about everything for Christmas
from this book.
They even have a Glamour Top which you can
make so that you look fantastic
on Christmas Day.

There is even a Tunisian Crochet cardigan.
It looks amazing and looks just like knit.

This book is amazing value for money
and one that you'll be able to bring out every Christmas.
