Book Description

Select one theme or mix and match to create your perfect Christmas tree decorations. The designs are suitable for all levels of crocheters and are quick and simple to make.  Each theme offers five new patterns; choose from Santa's Grotto which includes the classic Santa Claus with his reindeer to traditional Christmas trees, elves and a string of dancing gingerbread men; or why not crochet a delightful Frozen Winter Wonderland of snowflake baubles, snowmen, hearts and candy bows complete with a Snow Princess. Our Fairy Tale theme is sure to appeal to children and features a fancy Christmas fairy with a jolly pair of Christmas birds, red woodland toadstools and a characterful Christmas gnome. If you are looking for something more sophisticated, you will be inspired by the stylish collection of Scandinavian Christmas baubles in classic red & white, complete with bunting or our stunning White Christmas theme featuring an amigurumi Christmas tree, with mistletoe baubles, snowflake bunting and Chinese lanterns with Christmas berries. All the patterns and instructions you need to crochet your bauble collection are included.

Have fun during those long autumn evenings making your own tree decorations this year.  There are twenty-five projects to make in this book by five different designers, so something for many tastes and themes.  This is not a book for beginners and some of the projects are quite complex, belying their small and deceptively simple appearance on the cover.  Anybody who classes themselves as intermediate will have no trouble however, and some are suitable for improvers.  None uses a lot of yarn so are ideal for using up leftovers from larger projects.  Turn to the back and you can find lists of abbreviations, some UK/US terms (this is primarily aimed at the UK market) and stitches.  These are mostly described in words rather than diagrams but there are more diagrams for joining techniques and embroidery stitches.  Good eyesight is required here as the print is tiny and rather thin, giving it a gray appearance. 

 

The projects are grouped in themes, each by a different designer.  There are fun characters from Santas grotto, sophisticated red and white Scandinavian baubles, fairy tale folk and animals, cute snow characters and a white/pale selection of tree, snowflake etc.  Each section features a page of photographs showing each item and additionally there is a page sized picture of every finished piece.  Projects are in written form with size, list of what you need and full instructions.  The individual pieces are written consecutively so one starts when another stops, keeping down the size of the book.  The whole range will please modern tastes and traditionalists alike and is sure to have wide appeal.
