100 Snowflakes To Crochet – Book Review

I have another great craft book to share!  This is is great for the upcoming holiday season. It is 100 Snowflakes to Crochet: Make Your Own Snowdrift—to Give or to Keep (150 Trims/Embellishments) by Caitlin Sainio.

Synopsis:  Create a gorgeous collection of crocheted snowflakes. Bring the lacey beauty of a snowfall into your home with 100 Snowflakes to Crochet. Crafters of all levels can easily crochet up a storm—or just make a simple snowflake or two. The designs range from simple ones requiring only a few rows to large intricate ones for more advanced stitchers. Starting with a review of crochet basics, a discussion of materials and finishings, the structure of snowflakes, and methods of blocking and starching your finished flakes, anyone can easily learn to craft one of these gossamer creations. Then onto the Snowflake Selector to browse for a pattern that matches your skill level. However, as you work through the book, you will improve your skills as you go along! These lovely flakes—intricate, delicate, and symmetrical—can be used as appliques, to hang in windows, or to adorn your Christmas tree. With full patterns and lots of project ideas for your finished snowflakes, you’re certain to find hours of enjoyment and inspiration from the next book in our bestselling series.

My Thoughts: It’s amazing how many different kinds of snowflakes you can make!  They show you some lovely examples of how you can use these as ornaments, add them to cards, to clothing, to pillows, or other decor. (And I personally think they’d make great doilies.  It has lovely color photos and great step by step instructions to walk you through each project.  It seems to be a great book for expert crochet artists and beginners alike!

Buy it! You can purchase 100 Snowflakes to Crochet  on Amazon.
