About the Author

About Jan Ollis

Jan Ollis comes from a family of crafters and cannot remember a time when she was not creating something. Great Aunt Mabel taught her to crochet more years ago than she cares to remember, making granny square’ blankets for a local hospital. After completing a degree in Fashion and Textile Design and working in a range of textile and non-textile related jobs, Jan started Chi-Chi Moi - a small business making accessories in hand knitting and crochet. One successful early product was a flower corsage, which was so popular Jan made and sold 800 (with help from her family and friends). Jan lives in Somerset, UK with her partner Ben and has two grown-up children, Dominic and Milly. Visit Jan's website http://www.chichimoi.co.uk/

Crochet Savvy

If you are an ardent admirer of flowers and lover of crochet flowers, as I am, there won't be many surprises in this book. What the book offers in abundance are gloriously colourful and clear images of the flowers, a handy visual summary of contents, and great ideas for mixing media in flower creation.

The twenty blooms are peony, pink cosmos, gazania, Tudor rose, clematis, hibiscus, foxgloves, waterlily, poppy, freesia, daisy chain, African violets, camellia, passionflower, antique rose, retro daisy, carnation, scabious, black orchid and orange blossom.I particularly liked the waterlily, freesia, passionflower and black orchid, and was charmed by her use of fabric, beads, ribbon and buttons in flower construction. At 8.5" by 6", this paperback is a great size for carrying around some fresh inspiration.

I am very new to Crochet and love this book full of wonderfully small projects that I can make to my hearts content! I have bought a few of the books in this series and love them all so far.

This softcovered book is sized just right to carry in your yarn bag. All the flowers are crocheted, though some use add-ons of buttons, beads and fabric. Crocheted flowers are trending now. You can use crocheted flowers on hats, pins, home decor, as gift package decorations, fashionable necklaces and scarves. Your imagination is your best accessory guide. Crocheting flowers are perfect for using up your very small scraps of yarn. The flowers are small and portable projects that you can take with you on the go. The photographs are large and clear and easy to help you visualize how you will use them. Number three crochet cotton will show off the stitches as well as form delicate petals. Cotton has beautiful drape properties. Specialty and different weight yarns are used for particular flowers to enhance different properties.

Be creative with your yarn and hook size. From tiny Freesia and African Violets to the larger Water Lily with beads and Passion Flower using a bit of eyelash yarn, you can hook your own garden. The Camelia is classic vintage using beads and buttons. The Daisy chain necklace can be used as a jumping off point to create the necklaces that are very popular now.
