Packed with ideas to get you going, this clever directory begins with a five chapters of motifs and blocks, from the simplest crosses and spirals to geometric shapes, pictures, lacy patterns, and bold, beautiful flowers. Use them to make up your own bags, throws, scarves, and cushions, designed just as you choose, or follow one of Melody’s foolproof projects—included are a butterfly brooch, holly greetings cards, an openwork afghan, cat pillow, button baby blanket, tie belt, and a cherry border cardigan, so there’s something for everyone to make and give. Each motif is displayed as a color photograph next to easy-to-follow instructions, with stitch diagrams for more complex motifs. The instructions are also written out in full so you can choose the way you prefer to work. Melody also advises on the type of yarn to use, the tension and the size of the motif, and gives tips on how to achieve the best result. There are also sketches and photos showing how the motif can be used, either on its own, with several together, or partnered with other motifs. Once you start, you will realize that the possibilities are endless.

Sept 08 From the outside, this looks like quite a traditional book of crochet motifs. From the inside, however, it is actually quite innovative, and has lots of ideas for unusual and three-dimensional shapes, interlinked patterns, tapestry (pictures!) and some original finishing suggestions. There are actually just as many creative ideas in this book as in more self-consciously experimental ones such as `Freeform Knitting and Crochet' by Jenny Dowde. Used alongside each other, they are a great combination for the creative crocheter! * Waterstones Newsletter *
