Review: The Crochet Book (DK) by Claire Montgomerie

There are previous versions of this book and although this is an updated version, I don’t think that there is a lot of difference for those with an older copy of the book. If you are new to crocheting or are interested in a book that covers the basics and a little bit more, this is one to look for. It is quite thorough and a great reference book.

❀ Cute and Interesting Patterns

What really stands out for me is the fact that there are lots of really cute and interesting patterns to choose from. Some are easier than others, however there are many photos to help with understanding the techniques. Also, the instructions are very easy to follow, which I find really important in a crafting book.

❀ Perfect Hobby for Isolation

Crocheting is a perfect hobby for isolation and The Crochet Book (DK) by Claire Montgomerie is a perfect place to start. There is something in it for everyone and is an invaluable resource for all skill levels. I am currently creating dishcloths, but I am definitely looking forward to making some fun Christmas gifts.

    I have been interested in learning how to crochet. My grandmother used to do it all the time and it looked very peaceful.

    I haven’t crocheted in ages! About the only thing I’ve made is an afghan, it is in my basement right now, I need to get it out and use it. I thought it is much more fun to crochet than knit. I’d love to make some things, this is a good book to try it!
