Review quote

From fancy lace to gifts for baby, this book is full of imaginative projects that you'll enjoy bringing to life and will feel proud to give away. There are projects for advanced crocheters and, although there are some easy to make projects too, this book is best suited to those with reasonable experience of crochet. We love the sea star pendant, organic indulgence washcloths and the flower choker. It's a well presented book with stylish photography and clear step-by-steps, which make it a real pleasure to work from. The book itself will make a lovely gift for any keen crocheters you know.-Knit Today A charming shawlette in chain stitch, a scarf with an ice-blue vintage shell edging contrasting with bright, contemporary inner colours, and sweet frilled lace wristlets are our favourites in this book of ideas for making crochet gifts. Not every other project is as stunning, but there are plenty of very easy, quick ideas - some, like friendship bracelet-making, or a flower choker, are especially good for children learning crochet. And there are also projects which will challenge your skills - like crocheting with fine wire to make a hairpin lace bowl.-AllAboutYou.com Crocheted Gifts will refresh your crochet ideas and offers plenty of unusual projects to help you transform your crochet skills into treats for yourself or gifts for others. This isn't a book for beginners, but if you've already had some practice with a hook then the clearly laid out patterns and charts should prove easy to work with. Each gift comes with a little introduction, which includes helpful hints on where to start if you're intending on crocheting as a gift (choosing colours and sizes for example). We particularly like some of the more unusual projects, such as the delicate Little Star pendant, which you could make up quickly as a special last-minute surprise. The Berry Baby hat and booties are adorable - perfect for an expecting mother or newborn. There is such a variety of projects here - you can pick from items for the home, for women or men, accessories or garments...and best of all, you can give each pattern your own touch with colour and yarn substitutions.-Inside Crochet
