I love to crochet but have always been scared
of freeform crochet.
This book is here to give you and me the confidence
to be able to not only follow patterns
of freeform but to also create your own.
Freeform take the rules away and lets
you create with individual styles and techniques.



Carol takes you through step-by-step so even
if you haven't crocheted before you can give it a go.
There are clear instructions with pictures to make
it easier to follow.



The start of the book is taken up with the instructions
of the different stitches.
Then it's straight into the patterns.


The patterns vary in difficulty and show you how
you can do something as easy as changing colours
at random through a project or use different designs
to create unique styles. 


The patterns are varied and give you a fantastic
overview of what you can create. 
The projects are all fun and use an amazing array of colours.
The patterns are all in written format 
and are easy to follow.
The writing is a bit small for me for the patterns

 

I love how Carol gives you support within each pattern
to make it easier. The little hints about how
to put the projects together etc. make them easier to complete.


The patterns are split into sections:
Patchwork & Squares
Circles & Spirals
Organic Patterns
Openwork & Lace
Trims, Edgings & Fillers


Within these sections are the following patterns:
Fingerless Gloves
Striped Headband
Table Mat
Cup Cosy
Striped Square Scarf
Patchwork Cushion
Nautical Flag Bag
Shopper Bag
Wavy Beanie Hat
Spiral Bag
Infinity Scarf

Lace Motif Wrap
Embroidery Hoop
Mason Jar Cover
Granny Chic Top
Mix & Match Cardigan
Floral Filler Shawl
Freeform Trim
Loopy Edging Scarf

Layered Lace Hat
Edging Garment


This book really does offer great value for money.
It teaches the techniques you need to create your
own freeform as well as providing you with
and amazing array of projects to make.
