'Top blogger Marinke Slump (aka Wink) has teamed up with her fave designers to produce a collection of 30 bright crochet accessories for you and your home. There are how-tos if you're new, plus plenty of colourful pics.' Simply Crochet 'Crochet has long had quite a boho vibe, channelling 1960s and '70s fashion, bright colours amd a handmade feel and look. Blogger and designer Marinke Slump, who edited this book, was inspired by what bohemian style represents: creativity, colours, and nonconformity, which translates easily in crochet to bright colours, interesting textures and exciting stitches. She encourages you to take the projects here and explore your own style, adding your own twist to customise them and make them your own. There are over 30 projects for both the home and fashion, inspired by traditional folk motifs but using bright, modern colours to give an unmistakably contemporary collection.' Knitting
