20 vintage modern crochet projects for the home
by Emma Lamb
Eeek! I am super excited that my first book of crochet designs is here and I am so happy to share it with you all! My 'Crochet Home' is available from retailers in the UK, America and Australia and signed copies can be purchased exclusively through my website using the link below. It features a collection of signature designs that you will know and love as well as a collection of pretty new ideas that I hope will inspire you to get busy with your crochet hook!
"Creating a collection of designs that will bring warmth and charm to your home, Emma Lamb invites you to answer the irresistible call to make something beautiful. Using playful combinations of colour, pattern and texture and sampling both retro style and Scandinavian simplicity, she offers twenty brand new pieces that will fit easily into your everyday life.
Choose from collections of potholders and cushion designs, make a garland to brighten a room or a cosy throw to warm one. Whatever you select you will find that every design benefits from crystal clear pattern instructions and charts, as well as Emma’s own tips, to help you create the perfect piece for your home."
★★★★★ "I have been waiting for this book to be released after admiring some of the author's work and purchasing some patterns on Ravelry. I am amazed that I love every pattern in this book! The projects range from fairly basic (but still incredibly beautiful) flower garland through to the more complex cushions and blankets, but they are all accessible through the clear pattern writing. The colours used provide enviable eye candy, and tips for substituting yarns are given whenever possible. There is a crochet workshop section at the back with clear diagrams and explanations of the stitches needed. I especially liked that the author explained that she wanted to use different types of yarns to widen the reader's experience, and am intrigued by the paper yarn used to make a flower hanging. I never would have bothered with such a material before! However, I have not yet made any of the patterns, having only bought the book today. As mentioned earlier, I have purchased patterns from this author before and found them to be clear, precise and refreshingly free of the ambiguity that plagues so many other crochet patterns. Looking forward to working my way through every beautiful project in this book!" E.Foster
