201 Crochet Motifs, Blocks, Projects, and Ideas Reviews
Gutes Buch auch wenn es in englisch geschrieben ist.Duch die Häkelschrift kann es aber auch so gut verstanden werden.Mir gefällt das gehäkelte ABC.Sind neue Anregungen enthalten und mir gefällt das Buch.
Das Buch enthalt viele interessante Projekte, die über die üblichen bekannten Häkelideen hinausgehen. Schwierig finde ich allerdings, dass nicht zu jedem Projekt eine Häkelanleitung vorhanden ist, so dass man ohne Englisch-Kenntnisse in dieser Version schlecht vorwärts kommt ...
The cover on the American version is much different -- and better -- than the one shown here. This book is bursting with great stuff, and even includes some wonderful patterns for a cute adult flower granny jacket,adorable baby booties, fashion tops, pillows, afghans and my favorite -- a mini bag with a crocheted Siamese cat motif.The book is worth its price for just one thing alone: a well-done set of crocheted letters, forming analphabet. Each letter is individual to use as you please. But it's also full of wonderful flowers, motifs ofall shapes and sizes.There are delightful touches, such as a leaf with a ladybug, a Scottie Dog block, a fish block, a darling sheep, plus many more blocks of all types and shapes, ranging from the easy to the intricate. A paisley motif(much better than the one shown on this cover) is a great find. From hearts to trees, if it can be crocheted,you'll find it here.Photography is good and shows all stitch detail. Symbol charts as well as written instructions are provided for most of the designs.A useful and really fun book, it would make a great gift for a crocheter.
Ok so if you were like me, you’d want to buy every crochet and knitting book you see, but when I got this one I never needed another. Tha ks to the author who put a lot of effort into putting everything anyone will ever need into this beautiful book.
I want to crochet specific words to hang as Christmas tree ornaments and couldn't find a stand alone type alphabet; I even tried to design one. I got nowhere fast with that idea. This book has a wonderful alphabet crochet pattern. It has many original motifs of various sizes, shapes and designs, for example: stars, triangles paisley, squares, hearts, a leaf, ladybug, flowers and circles. And, it explains how to put the motifs together to make a crochet fabric, gives several projects with directions, & ideas to get you brainstorming ways to use the motifs. I'm going to use one of the paisley patterns to crochet a patch for my daughter's jeans. The photos are also top-notch. This is my favorite crochet book.
Instructions are clear, and many of the motifs are different from other books. The uppercase alphabet is really remarkable. I did several different letters to make monograms for bags for a party, and they all turned out really well. The cover does not do the book justice. Pages are all in color and glossy. Flowers are not as nice as the new "Crochet Flowers," but other motifs are quite different from the "classic" ones and seem to be well done. The spirals are especially nice. A worthwhile addition to the crochet book library.
Great book. So glad I got it! Alot of new motifs I've never seen. :)
