‘Colorful Crochet’ in review…

I cannot remember the last time I reviewed a book.  It’s highly likely that I was still in some form of schooling haha. BUT this is definitely not like a boring book review you did back then… THIS is like being a kid in a candy store!

If you’re like me, (chances are you’re very similar to me because you follow me hehe and like to hook too), then you know what I mean. I love books, especially new books and CROCHET books. Who doesn’t? Is that really even a question I need to ask? hehe.

So the lovely Marianne Dekkers-Roos asked if I would take part in a blog tour and review her amazing book. Did I just give away too much? Well it is amazing. The detail she has put into her patterns in above and beyond. Each one has a little write up about the pattern, offers little handy tips and sometimes even how the designs came about.

Beautiful photographs of the crocheted items are what I’m drawn to. And I love flipping through books over and over again, sometimes I smell them, because that ‘new book’ smell is almost as good as a yarn delivery hehe.

Look at the beautiful, genuine smile 😀

Each pattern has a chart, written instructions and tips, notes and colours used. So if you’re wanting to create the exact piece Marianne made, all the information is right there for you.

There are designs for all levels of crochet ability in ‘Coloful Crochet’ and if you are a beginner it is easy to teach yourself something that you may find challenging due to those charts and beautiful photographs.

I simply cannot wait to make more pieces from this book. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to start their own crochet book collection, or those wanting to add to it. There are enough designs to keep you busy all year round; great gift ideas and ones that you will really want to keep yourself.

I think I even love the ‘wrong side’/back of this pattern even more 

So there you have it! A crochet book with amazing patterns, beautiful photographs and something for everyone at any technical level. I’m so thankful and lucky to have been able to be a part of this blog tour and have my very own copy.

You can pre-order yours from AMAZON by clicking this link.  I know you’ll love it as much as I do.

You can enter my current giveaway to receive one copy (open to those in Australia) on my Instagram account @theloopystitch. A winner will be drawn tomorrow (Thursday 9:30am AEST)

Much love, happy hooking,
Em xoxo
