Industry Reviews

Booklist - Oct 2019
From ornamental flowers to variations on the granny square, hats to holiday ornaments, Quick and Easy Crochet contains a smorgasbord of patterns-100 of them-for a variety of purposes and skill levels. Beginning with basic crochet instructions, each pattern is accompanied by a list of materials and tools needed and a photograph or two of the finished product. The several bear patterns might be pushing the "quick" descriptor, but what the projects lack in speed is makes up for in variety, including an angel, a reindeer, and Mazzy the Keep-Fit Bear, to name just a few. Give this book to crafters looking to add notions to their yarn work; many of the patterns include zippers, buttons, and fabric linings, though the instructions for non-crochet steps are limited. Some of the color choices look dated, but readers with a good color imagination or a yarn stash that needs busting will find plenty to work with here. It was originally published in 2016 as 100 Little Crochet Gifts. - Susan Maguire
