Review quote

This is a fabulous book. 100 patterns in one book. Highly recommend it if you like crocheting. * Julia Stavordale * I really this book. There are lots of lovely patterns for all seasons/occasions. There are easy designs for beginners like me and what I think are harder designs for people who are really good. I made the heart coasters for my son's teacher as an end of year gift and she was thrilled when I told her I had made them. I'm really hoping to improve so I can make hats for the winter and more gifts come Christmas. * Kerry Jones * This is a brilliant book, it has easy to follow instructions that even kids could follow them and have a collection of animals * Nicky Leighton * This is a fab book i bought to help me with my never ending list of nieces and nephews to get gifts for. I love crocheting and recycling so making little things with left over wool from larger project i thought would be a great way to gift on a budget the first problem i had was choosing what to do first 100 very nice projects all illustrated with beautiful photos and each one letting you know the difficult, it has something for every level of skill from beginner to advanced. so after spending some time choosing i found the instructions were very easy to understand. I would recommend this book to my friends and family. * Leanne Perrett * This book is great for both novice and experienced crafter.



This is a hefty A4 book with lots of makes to choose from hats, bags, teddies and gifts for the home. At the front of the book along with a written contents there is also a contents section using mini pictures of the items so you can see what it looks like along with the page number. I love this section is really useful in choosing what you want to do and the type of item you want and believe me there is lots to choose from loads of different sort of hats or teddies etc



It has a really useful how to do guide near the front explaining how to crochet. With written in step by step how to chain, how to do the basic stitch with pictures. As well as explaining the stitch it also has a section explaining the short hand terms used for the stitches in crochet patterns.



Each pattern comes with full details covering 1 to 2 pages which is a lot when you consider it is A4. The instructions also cover all the usual stuff tension, what you need to have to make the item as well as instructions for any special stitch you will need for instance the hat I am doing has instructions for how crochet stitch a bobble. It has its main instructions, pictures of how the item should look and pattern pictures to show you the stitches you need to do as well as written instructions that work together.

It is really easy to follow and if unsure of what you need to do you can go back to the how to section to check on what you are meant to do.



The price is not to bad considering when you consider the size of the book and the 100 items you can pick to make with exceptional instructions.



I received this book from the publisher, Search Press Studio, in return for an honest review * Nula rees * Wow another amazing book from Search Press. They have brought their 20 to make series together. They have taken the best designs that are brilliant to make as gifts and complied them into this brilliant book. You will not believe the choice you will have in this book. There is everything from beanies, hearts, bears, granny square flowers & purses. It's jam packed with gifts to make for all occasions. Most of the patterns are in written format

but there are some that have charts along side as well. Each pattern gives you all the materials you will need, the hook, notions & what size it will be. There are full instructions for each project as well as any special abbreviations, making up and some have tips as well. I just love the fact that if I need or want to whip something up for someone I can just grab this book and in no time I will be making the perfect gift. This is a brilliant book to have to hand anytime you need to make a gift. Whether for a child's birthday, Christmas

or Valentines. There is just so much to chose from! * Crochet Addict UK * This is a super go to book for gift ideas and also to help use up scraps of yarn. Each project has a photo of the finished item, no need to stress about tension for these projects. I would say that you do need a knowledge of basic crochet stitches, the instructions are in American with British in brackets. A lovely well set out book, even if all you do is browse through it. * Alice Cowie * Brilliant book, lots of lovely gifts to make with clear instructions. I'm still learning but finding the instructions within this book easy to follow. Would highly recommend. * Louise Grace * Fabulous Big Book with 100 Little Gifts!



What a great book this is for us Crochet fans; full of ideas, easy to follow instructions and photographs of the finished article. Who could ask for more? I haven't had the time to actually make anything yet as I've only had the book for a week but I've marked several pages with projects I want to start with - my favourites being the Bears. I especially like Sparkles the Fairy bear (for my young niece) and Jeffrey the Dancing Bear complete with top hat and cane! Aww, perfect for my little nephew! I'm beginning to amass my wool and embellishments ready to begin.



If you enjoy crochet I would encourage you to give this book a go - you won't be disappointed and I defy you to not keep half the gifts you make! * Alyson Chapman * I love this book - some great projects. Good for beginners but also for more advanced crocheters. The instructions are easy to follow and each project gives details of the materials needed. This is a fantastic book to have for making cute little gifts, but the book itself would also make a great gift. * Emma Darlington-Brown * Absolutely lovely book, very pleased. Lovely simple gifts and easy to follow step by step patterns. Great gift * Karen Mitchell * I hadn't realised what a hefty book this was going to be, I'd expected a slim volume. But this is packed with multiple pictures of every project, varying from tiny book marks and flower motifs through to purses, beanies and even a cushion. With something for every taste, this is a wonderful resource that I'm sure I'll dip into time and again. * Jax Blunt * This is a fantastic book . Easy to follow patterns with UK instructions

Beautiful colour pictures and what a fabulous variety of patterns. It's the best crochet book that I have seen for ages.

I can't wait to get started. * Denise Bonham * what a fab book, just love it with so many ideas inside, have not tried any yet but when I get the time I will be doing a few in there, I would recommend this book to anyone who loves these sorts of things like my mum who I know would just love this book. * Samantha Peacock *
