If you are a beginner crocheter this is not the book for you, however, if you are looking to take your crochet skills to the next level this is a great book of patterns and ideas.

I really liked that there are a wide range of patterns from baby to household as well as accessories and blankets.

There are no written instructions as such, just charts to follow with basic instructions which is why you need a good knowledge of crochet

Overall a great book for expanding your skills and learning new techniques.

The projects in this book are just beautiful. The simplicity of the patterns and designs are enough to add a touch of stylish glamour to any home. Blankets, pillows and so many other ideas are all showcased in wonderful glossy pages, and each design is striking and vibrant despite the muted colour palette.

The instructions are easy to understand and there is guidance on how to finish your chosen piece and how to add any embellishments. There is a basic technique guide, on how to crochet, and a fair isle workshop that will help with yarn colour, this comes with some handy hints and tips.

I adored the throw. It has a Scandinavian vibe, and looks warm and cosy. I just know that whichever project you choose, and whether you keep it or gift it it will be loved and treasured.

Great book for alternative patterns you normally associate with knitting. Full of lovely patterns for the nursery, home and personal item.

Some brilliant projects in this book. Lots of different technics.


Inside Crochet

For a long time, beautiful, detailed colourwork was considered the preserve of knitting, but more and more detailed crochet designs are showing off just whats possible in our own versions of intarsia and stranded colourwork techniques. Fair Isle crochet is created by working more than one colour in a row, working around the strands of the other shades as you go, and this book contains 15 stylish, contemporary designs that show off this craft to great effect.

Natasja begins with the basic techniques, in which she works through the back loops only to avoid the stitches skewing to one side as they stack up. Then its on to the patterns, all worked in simple dc stitches following full-colour charts. Theres a sweet set of baby designs, including a blanket, storage pockets and cuddly bunny, and a selection of stylish modern homewares, such as plant holders, a stunning pouffe, geometric pillows and a large throw that shows off a variety of colourwork arrangements. This is a gorgeous collection ideal for sprucing up your home and practising a versatile new technique.
